What Are The Differences Between Book And Movie

Good Essays
There is quite a few differences between the book and movie The Outsiders. The book is written by S.E. Hinton. We have been reading the outsiders and we were wondering which was better the movie or the book. The book and movie are both easy to relate to because Ponyboy is our age and most of the characters are young. I think the three characters are Sodapop,Ponyboy,and Two bit. In the book I pictured them as these tough looking kids but when I saw the movie they actually don’t look as tough as I imagined. I figured that Ponyboy and Johnny were like these kids who had deep voices and scary looking but they’re no they look like any other kid. In the book it made everything not so dramatic but in the movie it was and that helped me figure …show more content…
The church was in flames and Dally told them to stay in the car but Ponyboy and Johnny both got out because they thought it was their faults.They got all the children out of the church and Dally pulled Ponyboy out of the window and leaped in and grabbed Johnny but everyone was severely hurt. The movie or book didn’t show what happened when Ponyboy got knocked out and then when the ambulance showed up to the scene. The church was probably one of the most important places of the book. After the church incident everyone one was in the hospital but Ponyboy and Dally weren’t hurt badly but Johnny was still unconscious. This part had a few differences like in the book it said his mom showed up to visit him but in the movie I never saw his mom visit him. And in the book it said that Johnny was laying flat on his stomach but in the movie he was propped up on his back. Throughout the book there were a lot of different symbols. I think the one that stood out the most to me was how they all ate chocolate cake. tHis stood out to me because there parents never let them eat it but dally let them. I think the symbol was described the best in the book and not the movie. The movie talked nothing about it and the book described it really well and that’s why I chose this

    The movie itself is very much different from the book. The story was also changed with some of the plot. The movie and the book are both still following the same story line. Along with the same ending. This is what I have noticed between the movie and the book. Number one is that the old man was cruel to the young man. Unlike in the book where it says and I quote “The old man had never wronged me”. That was huge difference. This change also gave him a different reason to kill the old man. That was…

    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. One difference from the movie and the book is that, in the book, Dally…

    adventure both in the movie and book. Although differences may apply they are both fascinating. Imagine a community where your feelings are tucked away from a pill? Both in the movie and the book Jonas was skipped during the ceremony of the twelve. Jonas was frightened and embarrassed and thought he wasn’t good enough to get selected to do anything. This is a pretty big key in the book because this is the time Jonas becomes the receiver of memory. Towards the end of the movie, there was a pretty significant…

    Movies and books are always different; in a movie you can show multiple characters, and in most books you're stuck in one character's narrative. For instance in the book The Giver the character Fiona doesn’t care about Jonas as deeply as she does in the movie. In the movie she stops her injections, and she starts to love Jonas. However in the book she only “enjoys having Jonas’s company”. In the movie she also helps Jonas steal Gabe before he is killed, and she is put in the community jail for helping…
