The Outsiders Differences Between Book And Movie
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.
For instance, the both have Johnny killing Bob while they were drowning Ponyboy. Although it, like the book, doesn't go into great detail about it.Another thing that they kept the same was when Dally shows up the get them while they were staying at the abandoned church.
And it keeps the part when Dally was speeding to the restaurant. Although they both have many similarities they also have many differences.

Especially when it comes to the part when Sandy, his girlfriend turns him down. But in the movie, Sodapop is barely mentioned and does not play a big role. It doesn't even mention anything about Sandy or Sodapop's horse, Mickey Mouse.

Another big difference is about Johnny's mom at the hospital.In the book, the nurse comes in and tells Johnny that his mom is here to see him, and he tells them he does not want to see her.And, as Dally and Ponyboy are leaving, it shows her yelling at the nurse about how she wants to see him.In the movie it only mentions his mom at the hospital, with the nurse coming in and and telling Johnny that his mom was there.Although it was a small detail, it was a big difference.

The ¨Outsiders¨ book and movie are the same in the story line, but the details differ at times.But the similarities are more common than the differences, so it was an all in all good story.Even though adding a bit more Sodapop would make it a bit sweeter.The differences just show how books and movies will just never be the

    Although coming up with similarities between the two proved to be a mind boggling task, I found several similarities. One of them is that both the book and the movie provide entertainment. Both give the person something to do, whether they’re bored, having the blues, or in a cuddly mood. Once the person gets all cozy and snug, takes out their book or flips open their laptop, they might notice that in both cases the plot of the story stays the…

    There are actually a lot of similarities in the movie and the book but most are very small and not easily noticed. What you have to understand when looking at a movie or reading a book based on the same story is that it is basically impossible to have everything due to the facts that they are portrayed by two…

    Another big difference is that in the book the character is dying throughout the whole story and in the movie the character is working and is well and active. Another difference is that in the book most of the story takes place inside somewhere and in the movie most of the story takes place outside. Some similarities are that the characters are mostly the same and also the ending to both the book and the movie are the same.…

    The second comparable scene is when the Socs and Greasers line up to fight each other. They are smack-talking back and forth with each other. Two similarities between the book and the movie could be the sound of the greasers and socs talking back and forth, and it both showed or described how the greasers and socs were lining up. Two differences between the book and the movie could be instead of Paul swinging at Darry, some random Soc swung at Ponyboy, and the empty lot looked different than what I had imagined when the book described it.The book was more effective during this scene because It gave more detail about how the lot looked like and it described the feeling better than the movie…

    On 1967, The Outsiders book was published by S.E. Hinton. Also in 1983, The Outsiders movie was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The book is fiction; specifically young adult fiction. The book and the movie were very different from one another. The book was a lot better in giving more details and getting to know what Ponyboy is thinking. It was easier to be able to comprehend what was going on and why the characters were making those decisions.…

    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.…

    Even though there are a myriad of differences there are also a mass of similarities, for instance, they are both set in the same time frame (The 1960´s). They both keep the technology and clothing relevant to how it was portrayed in the 60´s. They also kept one of the most wholesome scenes in the whole book almost exactly the same, they paid attention to almost every detail during the scene with the church fire. The film also kept the number of around 4-5 kids, of which Ponyboy and Johnny saved, they didn't over exaggerate anything and kept with the feel of how anyone could have saved those kids, they director for the movie kept the same…

    The plot in the movie and the novel had many differences. The exposition is one of the differences that made the movie confusing. Instead of Ponyboy leaving the movie house and getting jumped by the Socs, he starts to write The Outsiders. It was a huge mistake for Francis Coppola to leave this out because the exposition in the book involved a significant event, where the Socs showed the violent relationship they have between the Greasers. Another difference is When Cherry explains to Ponyboy that ‘Socs are cool to the point of not feeling anything’, without this scene in the movie, it is harder to understand how Cherry views the conflict between Socs and Greasers.…

    The Outsiders is both a great book and a great movie. Although they are both very great, they are not completely the same, or completely different. A book that turns into a movie usually has way more information because the person writing the book isn’t just going to make it a movie line for line. The movie “The Outsiders” doesn’t work like that though. The book and the movie are about as close to line for line as you can possibly get. They have to add some scenes in movie to explain the thinking of the characters, but they also have to subtract scenes from the book to shorten the movie. The book, The Outsiders, and the movie, “The Outsiders,” are alike in many ways.…

    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.…

    People like to watch movies because it is animated and they can watch with others. Some like to read novels because they can escape from the world and prefer some time to themselves. People who love to read novel have a different personality to those that love to watch movies. Most modern teenagers would say that they would prefer watching the movie than the novel, but even those film lovers would prefer the novel with these two texts. The Outsiders by S.E Hinton is a much better text than The Outsiders directed by Fransis Ford Copolla. The novel is much easier to understand and there weren’t any bad actors/actresses. The movie however has many continuity errors and it seemed rushed.…
