The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton

This is an incredible book. It is a really easy read, but I really cannot explain why it is such a good book. It is just a really good story, I guess.

I first saw the movie back in the 5th or 6th grade, and I guess I was just plain blinded by how much I liked the book that I convinced myself I liked the movie, too. But I had my eyes opened when I recently rented it.

The fact is, the movie leaves out half the book, and some of the acting is just plain... horrible. That is, if you have already read the book and know how the actors should act.

The guy who plays Ponyboy is way too passive, I think the only thing they got right is the fact they he looks like Pony.

Well, that's about it, I may add more later.
