Description

"I really couldn't see what Socs would have to sweat about-good grades, good cars, good girls, madras and Mustangs and Corvairs-Man, I thought, if I had worries like that I'd consider myself lucky. I know better now." -from The Outsiders. Ponyboy is a Greaser. He wears his wavy hair long and slicked back and his shirts tight to show off his muscles. Sometimes he carries a knife, but it's usually just for show. He lives on the wrong side of the tracks with his older brothers Darry and Sodapop. Even though his parents died in a car accident, Ponyboy gets to live with his brothers-as long as they behave. So Ponyboy stays out of trouble as much as he can, and is careful not to get caught when he can't. Sometimes Ponyboy wishes he lived someplace where he didn't have to worry about walking alone at night, or that the Socs might jump him and do to him what they did to his friend Johnny. Would he always be looking over his shoulder, always afraid, always an outsider?

Professional reviews

"Susan Hinton's ground-breaking book is arguably the most widely read of young adult novels since it first appeared in 1967. Unfortunately, it loses much of its grit and energy in this presentation. Spike McClure's Ponyboy doesn't sound "tough" at all; the good-hearted youth beneath Pony's carefully-tended "tough-greaser" image is exposed from the start. McClure brings little emotional range to the part, and the measured pacing fails to convey the drama of knife fights and other rumbles. McClure misses his chance to bring potentially colorful characters to life. Young people who have read the book will likely be disappointed, and this Ponyboy, with his "gee whiz" wholesomeness, will win few new admirers among today's teens. D.M.L.
