    The Outsiders Book Reveiw The novel The Outsiders was written by S.E. Hinton. The novel The Outsiders is a Drama. This book took place in a neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1965. In this neighborhood there are two main gangs, the Greasers (the poor part of the neighborhood) and the Soc’s (the rich part of the neighborhood). The Greasers and The Soc’s both want to hurt and even kill each other. But, one time the Soc’s took it too far and tried to drown Ponyboy so his friend Johnny stabbed the Soc and killed him. Johnny and Ponyboy then both fled and hid from police. While they were in hiding they came across a church that was burning down and it had kids in it. Ponyboy and Johnny didn’t think twice and rushed into the burning building trying to save the little kids. Ponyboy questioned why the gangs constantly fought and tried to end the gang violence in the area. Bridging the gap between the rich and the poor, the horrific cycle of violence, and sacrifice for one’s friends are three themes portrayed in this book. This book was outstanding for many reasons. The book was packed with action and I felt as though I was never bored while reading the book. I love the ultimate plot of the book and the ultimate lesson that the author showed. I give this book 4.5 stars and most definitely recommend it.
