The book ,”The Outsider”, has some differences from the novel and the film. For example, when Randy(a soc) was talking to Ponyboy Curtis in the novel, Randy said that he was going to load up his mustang and head south; in the film Randy didn’t say this. These differences are not hard to tell sometimes, or they are obvious. Dallas Winston robbing a store, Sodapop Curtis less developed, the car accident, and Dallis chasing kids. Here are some differences in the novel and movie.
Do your parents know that you are with me?” The king questioned the boys. “I ran away. My parents thought that coming to see you was pointless so I left. And Rosco unintentionally got lost when he chased a rattlesnake,” Henry explained wide-eyed. “I see, well you two are some brave kids.
After Lennie had run away, George set out to go find him before anyone else did. Lennie immediately confesses and tells George what he did. He then asks George to tell him the story about their ranch and the rabbits that he will tend. George tells the story while he is depressingly realizing that their dream will never become a reality. George says, ‘“We’ll have a cow,” said George.
In chapter seven the story comes to the end when Lennie actually remembers to retreat to the Brush since something bad happened. George obviously know where lennie is but of course he flees the search party to get to lennie first. When George finds lennie he is not a bit mad. Lennie has George resight the dream of the farm and how lennie will tend the rabbits. George let 's Lennie know that he never been mad and that he was there for him.
In the book “The lord of the Flies” talked but in the movie it didn’t. After Simon came down from the mountain and got beaten to death SamNEric changed tribes. In my opinion I would've left his tribe because there were no skills , no food, and no life with Ralph and Piggy. Later on Piggy and Ralph find two instruments, a drum and an accordion in the movie but not in the book. When they found it they started playing with them.
One night, Ichabod is walking home and the headless horseman chases him. He is so frightened that he leaves town and never returns. It is alluded that Brom pretended to be the horseman in order to scare Ichabod away. Overall, this story was very interesting and keeps readers hooked with each new paragraph. Although on the surface “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” seems to be just a ghost story, a major theme is present.
One night Ponyboy goes out with his buddies Johnny and Dally were they sneak into a drive in movie, where they see 2 girls. Ponyboy starts talking to one of the girls cherry who tells him”things are rough all over.”(35) Ponyboy doesn't believe this though because he thinks money can solve all their problems. Cherry was trying to tell ponyboy that everyone has problems even ones he has never heard of before. This didn't make sense to Ponyboy yet. After running from the police when johnny stabbed Bob a soc they find themselves in an abandoned church.
Ponyboy knew the risks of walking alone entailed indeed, right before being attacked, he mentioned the danger he could be facing. “Anyway, I went on walking home, thinking about the movie, and then suddenly wishing I had some company. Greasers can 't walk alone too much or they 'll get jumped, or someone will come by and scream "Greaser!" at them, which doesn 't make you feel too hot, if you know what I mean. We get jumped by the Socs.” A large part of the novel is devoted to Ponyboy’s escape.
The absence of spring in Andy 's step presented that he was losing hope; however, it was clear that his hope had rebounded when he told Red his dream. Andy 's character in Stephen King 's "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" proved that if there 's a will there 's a way. Also, Andy himself had changed in the story, but discreetly. Andy, who may have been innocent but was by no means an angel, walked into Shawshank as naked as a newborn. When he escaped, he left Shawshank out of a woman, his pin-up girl, and crawled through 500 yards of muck to freedom.
The Soc’s want to fight but Cherry makes them stop and goes with them. In Both the movie and book right before Johnny dies he says stay gold Ponyboy (Hinton 126). In the Movie and Book Johnny also leaves a letter for Ponyboy saying to stay
People use to say “You’ll never be as smart as me because you are from a dumb state.” They use to make fun of my accent they would taunt me and say “Howdy y’all!” and act like a cowboy. In John Steinbeck’s novella Of Mice and Men setting of the 1930’s in Salinas Valley, California we meet the static and round character Lennie Smalls and his best friend George a dynamic character. While it is obvious to the reader that Lennie has a mental disability because of his actions, it is never directly stated. However, when he… “I’d pet ‘em, and pretty soon they bit my fingers and I pinched their heads a little and then they was dead- because they was so little.” (Steinbeck 10). This shows he
It started going astray in Weed when they were forced to run away and find new work. Their progress was good but Lenny 's desire for soft things ended up stopping one of his small plans of taking care of a puppy and raising it. Even though he was a good worker, he was forced to run when he accidently killed Curley 's wife when he panicked and refused to let go of her hair, when she offered him to pet it. In the end, he was killed and would never live his plan of taking care of rabbits and other soft animals. Candy 's plan of his life was to just work on the farm he was currently at.
In the novella “Of Mice and Men” George and Lennie are walking to the ranch and George is trying to tell Lennie what they’re doing and where they’re going and to everything that George says Lennie’s response is “‘I forgot,’ Lennie said softly. ‘I tried not to forget. Honest to God I did, George.’” (Steinbeck 4) This can be dangerous not only to Lennie but also to everyone and anyone who is around him. Lennie forgets pretty much anything the second after you tell him. What if he were to forget where he was going one day and he got lost?
He also talks about his habit of fist fighting. In the movie York 's salvation came after a really bad day and a night of drinking he was struck by lightening on his way home from the bar. In reality his salvation came for two reasons the desire to make Gracie Williams his wife and his mother happy.3 It also didn 't happen through a bolt of lightening. York said later of this scene “A bolt of lightening was the nearest to such a thing that Hollywood could think up”4. The depiction of the turkey hunts and the shots for parts of the beef are true.
