The book and the movie of ¨The Outsiders¨ are generally the same but differs at some of the parts. As books and movies usually do, they both share the same same story line and the general idea. Nonetheless, the differences are quite large.
Both the book and the movie are very similar, or else it wouldn't be much of a point to make a movie for a book.
