The Outsiders Book Talk
Transcript of The Outsiders Book Talk
Excerpt I was getting mad. I was hating them enough to lose my head.
"You know what a greaser is?" Bob asked. "White trash with long hair."
I felt the blood draining from my face. I've been cussed out and sowrn at, but nothing ever hit me like that did. Johnnycake made a kind of gasp and his eyes were smoldering.
"You know what a Soc is?" I said, my voice shaking with rage. "White trash with Mustangs and madras." And then, because I couldn't think of anything bad enough to call them, I spit at them.
Bob shook his head, smiling slowly. "You could use a bath, greaser. And a good working over. And we've got all night to do it. Give the kid a bath, David."
What I liked/Disliked About the Book One thing i really liked about the outsiders is that the point of view is first person. Personally, I enjoy reading books that are in first person because you are able to read the main character's thoughts on the events as well. I also liked how real the characters were. They wern't perfect sparkly vampires or flashy attractive perfect people. The characters seemed like they were real people. One thing that would have made the book better is that S.E. Hinton put in additional character development of some of the perifiral characters. Overall, I also liked in this novel that S.E. Hinton used so much imagery it made it seem like you were actually there. The book was easy to understand because it was written by a sixteen-year-old. Believeable??? I find it extremely believeable. Not only did S.E. Hinton write it based on experience, but all the characters seem like they are real, parts of the plot actually happened during the time period, and the author grew up around the time period that it was set in Video Clip :D
