In The Outsiders, by S.E. Hilton, we go to a time where gangs remain dominant and run the streets. S.E. Hinton tells us about two enemy gangs. The Socs, one of the many provocative gang groups, kids who live lavish lives and get away with the crimes they commit because they look clean cut and look like good innocent kids on the outside. Then there 's the Greasers, who live poorly and get blamed for most of the things that go down in the city. Ponyboy, and Johnny, two Greasers, that at first, clang to the fact that they hated Socs. All they wanted to do was fight the other gang to look tough and earn respect.
There are comparisons and contrast in the movie and the book “The Outsiders”. For example in both when Ponyboy and Johnny run away from after killing Bob they go on the train to the abandoned church in both.They are similar because in the story and movie Johnny kills bob then runs away with Pony. They go to Dally where he gave them a pistol and told them to jump on the train and get off at the second stop Windrixville and go to the abandoned church on top of jay mountain. Another example of similarities between both is they still have all the main characters in the greaser gang.They are similar because throughout both Ponyboy and Johnny are the main characters from the greaser gang until they kill bob then the rest of the greaser gang becomes more of the main characters. There are many different similarities between the book and movie “The Outsiders”, but there are also a lot of comparisons between the two.

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.While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the Movie was more effective in telling the story.

He said, “Johnny was lying face down on the ground. Soda turned him over gently and I nearly got sick. Someone had beaten him badly.” This shows that when violence is used, it can either help or harm others. Sometimes, it could help you, but not in a good way, because while it’s a solution, it is also a problem. The socs are doing that so the greasers would know which gang is better and to show them who is boss, but did they gain anything. No, but they now have to face the

In life, innocence is associated with purity and the lack of corruption, and the loss thereof is inevitable. Chapter fifteen of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Robert Frost’s poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, illustrate how innocence is impermanent. Both Lee and Frost, portray the impermanent nature of innocence and how it is slowly replaced by wisdom from experiences as one ages.
