The Outsiders: Compare and Contrast In the novel “The Outsiders,” by S.E Hinton and the movie by Francis Ford Coppola have numerous similarities and differences. Our thoughts on these particular aspects are very diverse as the universe is. Many things have been either left out or diminished from the movie, which makes it less interesting as the suspense lessens as you have finished reading the book. Although this might be the case, there were also many similarities between the two sources.
As a reader I prefer reading the book versus watching the movie, because the movie was missing pieces of the book. In the beginning of the novel Jack and his son Danny are closer to each other than in the movie . Jack began off as crazy as soon as the film started so you don 't really see what got him there. He works at a hotel in Colorado he stays with his wife and his son , Shelley and Danny.
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.
This is my writing assignment comparing The Outsiders movie and book. My favorite quote was“Stay gold Ponyboy” which means Do not go tuff and stay like yourself because you are once in a lifetime. My opinion of both the movie and the book are pretty good. The book was only a little better because it was longer and it had more parts on the other hand the movie you can hear and see more and feel more when you can actually picture it.
Housekeeping in Heaven with the Lone Ranger and Tonto Every family has its stories. Some we tell and some we keep to ourselves yet, both create the story of who we are. Although the selections of Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping and Sherman Alexie’s The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven are at first glance completely different, on a deeper level the similarities run deep. While the main characters in Housekeeping are poor white females and Alexie’s characters are poor Native males from very different worlds, they both experience great loss and b find the resilience to continue even when faced with discrimination and hardship.
Compare and Contrast Essay: A Wrinkle In Time/ And Then There Were None In the movie productions of A Wrinkle In Time and And Then There Were None, the directors did not follow the original story line. The directors made some changes in the movies which did eventually end up affecting some of the movie scenes.
In the “Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven” Sherman Alexie explores an anxiety that is often shared by minority groups trying to navigate through society. In the personal narrative Alexie is able to convey the struggle to find one's sense of belonging in a place where your existence is a second thought at best. This story also touches on the fear of how trapping “home” can feel when someone striving for more. To best illustrate these concepts Alexie uses mostly metaphor, historical context, and humor..

I think the movie version is better than the book. The reason for this is because the movie has a lot more character than the book does. You get to see what the characters look like, while the book doesn’t give a good description of the people in the book at all. You can feel the mood better in the movie because of all of the extra things, like the lightning and fog, to capture the mood. Some similarities I found in both the movie and the book is that Scrooge says, “Bah! Hummbug.”.
