Publisher's Summary

Ponyboy can count on his brothers. And on his friends. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect, until the night someone takes things too far.

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    "STAY GOLD PONYBOY...STAY GOLD!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would....I read this several times when I was a young girl...and saw the movie so many times...listening to this after 30 years was a real treat!


    What other book might you compare The Outsiders to and why?

    you cant compare this one....it is a classic...


    Have you listened to any of Jim Fyfe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I would...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They did...and it is and always will be a true classic!


    Any additional comments?

    This touched my heart just as much now as it did when I was 12yrs old..I had such a crush on Ponyboy Curtis, and posters of the character all over my room..I saw the movie at the drive in like 10 times and rented it on VHS every chance I got...Listening as an adult, I see a book about a boy with a golden heart...a story of survival, a beautifully tragic tale of friendship...and I loved it!!!!

    "The Outsiders"

    This audio book does not follow the print book! I bought this to play for my 7th grade literature class, but the chapters listed on my ipod did not match what the narrator was reading! I would select chapter 7, and when the narrator read it said "Chapter 9" !

    "Excellent"

    A remarkable story told with a keen eye and pure heart. It was well read...but...the Audible company dor the last couple of lines od the story... .the music was a distraction from the mood that the author had so artfully crafted...

    "Interesting"

    I thought the story was well read and entertaining as well as it was interesting my favorite characters are Darry and pony boy both act differently and fight but still love each other no matter what.I was really depressed when Dallas and Johny died I was so depressed that I almost cried but it was still a very good book.

    "Thought the plot was amazing, brought me to tears"

    This is probably one of my favorite books of all time. I had to read it again for school, and the voice was a little bit odd at times, but told the story well.

    "Beautiful"

    This is an amazing book. The ending was one of my favorite parts. At first, I thought Ponyboy was in too much denial to come to senses and I also thought he was gonna end up like Dally. This is kind of like another book I read. But that one was about time travel. This one is very special. I absolutely love it and 100% recommend reading it or listening to it. If you do read or listen it then don't finish. Then, you are missing out on a powerful message. A message that has personally touched my young heart. Thank you for reading!
