After what Ponyboy goes thru in this book, you shouldn’t be surprised if he has changed later as a person.

Pony had accepted the stereotypes on the Greasers and the Socs, that the grasers are the average bad boys and that the Socs a rich patier.

In general, I think that the movie didn’t quite capture the theme in the book and the lessons that Pony learns throughout

Instead, in the movie she appeared to be an innocent person but was actually extraordinary selfish in her own actions.

This proves that Lennie does not mean to harm people but due to his challenged mind and physical power it is
