The Outsiders Book And Movie

Satisfactory Essays
However, The Outsiders movie was very interesting, the novel portrayed the story line better in my opinion. For one the novel is more detailed such as when Johnny got jumped by Bob and three of his Soc friends, but the movie does not. Also, the novel describes in chapter 4 page 53 that there is a swimming pool at the park but they movie shows nothing about there being a pool there. In addition, the novel also states when Dallas Winston takes Ponyboy and Johnny to Dairy Queen they sit in the Restaurant, but in the movie, they do not. Lastly, those are the few reasons why the novel is better than the movie.

    The book was better than the movie on account of it had way more details, and it had more parts in it than the movie did. It is extremely time-consuming to fit an entire book in a less than two hour long movie, but authors and readers can produce a book as long as you want. Although the movie took a shorter time to watch than reading the book did, the readers can retrieve more from a book than they can retrieve from watching a movie. Even in movies that into feeling by the book scene for scene there is still less detail in the movie than there is in the book.…

    S.E. Hinton was only 15 years old when she wrote this extremely detailed book. I liked her book a lot because of how much detail she put into it. I didn’t like the movie a lot because I was kind of expecting it to be a lot like the book but was disappointed when it left out many different parts of the book. While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the book was more effective in telling the story.…

    Has anyone ever felt like you were judged by the way you look and dress? The outsiders by S.E Hinton should be taught in school. This book should be taught in school because it is very much like real life today so it could teach kids what not to do. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is a story about a boy named Ponyboy and his friends who are constantly getting in trouble and being judged for being “greasers”. Ponyboy is an interesting character because he is different from his friends, but gets caught up in gang conflicts. There are many examples in The Outsiders showing Ponyboy to be loyal, brave and sensitive. The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton was written in 1967. This novel tells the story of the conflict between two different social groups, the greasers and the socs. The socs were the socials who lived in the rich part of town, and the greasers were the lower class youths. They call them Greasers because they wear their hair long and a lot of grease in it. They are always getting picked up by the police for shoplifting, hijacking cars, pity theft, armed robbery and even MURDER!! They are always getting in trouble for something the Socs did like when Pony boy was at school.

The Socs are a bunch of rich kids that have mustangs and corvettes with nice interior. This novel tackles issues such as violence, class conflict, and prejudice. The novel takes place in the early sixties. The Outsiders examines how two different groups compete, and unite for survival, which is often justified with violence. This one isn’t getting lost in the woods and having to make fire and kill fish and get water out of some spring. This is more like real life because things like this happen every day.…

    However, the book and the movie do have their similarities. In the beginning of both the movie and the book, the main characters of the movie, Ponyboy Curtis, Dallas Winston, and Johnny Cade, are revealed. Both versions of The Outsiders also show the situation that the Greasers are in. For an example, the book shows the situation that the Greasers are in when Ponyboy is jumped by the Socs while the movie also shows their situation through how they look and act when they head to the movies. Though they have their similarities, both the book and the movie have their differences. The beginning of the book shows an important scene not included in the movie where Ponyboy is jumped by the Socs. This is important because not only does it show who the Greasers are but also the Socs. In the movie, there is no introduction of the Socs as Ponyboy, Dallas, and Johnny go to the movies. As a result, the book emotionally connects to the audience more through this scene making it an important reason why the book is better than the movie. On the other hand, this is not the only reason why because the movie also loses its connection with the audience in another scene where Randy Anderson comes to Pony’s house to…
