Review: The Outsiders

The OutsidersThe Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Well, here's another book I probably should have read in school. The Outsiders is really well-written for an author who was only about 17 or so when they wrote it. I think I've been spoiled by all the tropes that this book helped to lay out as far as teen gangs and such. The plot was a little soft, but the characters were interesting and well-conceived. It's a tad bit dated (Even though I thought it was written in the 80s rather than the 60s), but it's an interesting and fast enough read to recommend. Not like you haven't already read it. I'm really catching up with some of these books.
