im assuming youre asking because youre reading it in school. This book is pretty entertaining, as it was the edgy literature back in its time. Though it is bland at some points, character developement was what made this book memorable

I read this book for the first time about two summers ago, between my eighth and ninth grade school years, after I'd seen the movie. The movie was good, but the book was great! I was hooked from the first chapter. I love S.E. Hilton's style of writing. It's raw but smooth, making it easy to read the writing and feel what the character feels. When I read, I felt like I was Ponyboy, experiencing his pains and struggles as he himself went through them.

I read it in 9th grade and I don't remember much about it. But I do remember that I enjoyed it very much!

I love that book, I read it in 6th grade and it blew my mind. SPOILER ALERT: Johnny also kills one of the Socs then exiles him and Ponyboy for about a month, untill Sodapop and Darry find them. Though easily my favorite character is Johnny the gang's pet, he just specks to me more than Ponyboy does, and I'm more like him too.

I read the book and watched the movie, definitely read the book before you watch the movie- the book is way better.. and I think the movie leaves out parts from the book. The book and the movie makes me cry every time I read or watch it.. a good type of cry though:)
