My view on things has changed a lot since I read this book A movie a death a church and friendship The Outsiders has it all A story of brotherhood friendship and of a murder a boy and his friend are caught in a murder they have to escape form getting caught by the police and so they run away starting their journey of friendship and hardships After reading the novel and watching the movie I noticed some differences Ill start with Ponyboy in the novel pony boy is slapped by his brother but in the movie he is pushed I think the actors couldnt fake the slap or wanted to harm the actors this difference wasnt very good it took away some of the drama Another difference is that in the movie it ends shortly after Dallys death and in the novel a lot happens after that this was a very bad change to the film like pony boy breaking the glass was definitely a point that made the novel more enjoyable One similarity in the book and novel is that in both he cuts his hair and dyes it blonde Johnny also had some differences in the novel and in the film in the novel Johnny is jumped and has a large scar across his cheek in the movie it isnt very noticeable This difference is good because it would attract a lot of attention instead of the viewer focusing on other things In the movie and novel he has his jean jacket that he wears throughout much of the movie There is also Dally still has his outlaw look of his troublemaker self this was very important the book and movie Also in the book he robs a drugstore but in the movie he takes a book and rips it up then scares the cashier then runs away this was an okay change it did not make a lot of difference maybe
