Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
S. E. Hinton first made her mark in the literary world with The Outsiders, the phenomenal story of Ponyboy, who discovers the magical power of friendship and the alarming power of prejudice. Relying on her own experiences growing up, Hinton tapped into the universal teen emotion of alienation. We relive all of our personal anguish, as Ponyboy struggles to fit in with his Greasers while privately watching sunsets and dreaming of a better life. When he is forced to go into isolation after a fight with a rival, readers empathize both with his desperation and his will to go on. Originally published more than 30 years ago, Hinton's creation still rings true with the youth of today, providing young readers with an escape and a comrade in the one-and-only Ponyboy.

Four years after The Outsiders, Hinton published That Was Then, This Is Now. Covering the same theme of friendship and loyalty, the book recounts the story of two friends facing big decisions as their lives begin to drift apart. While Byron treasures his friendship with childhood buddy Mark, he cannot ignore Mark's drug-induced downward spiral. He eventually turns Mark into the police, breaking ranks with his one-time best friend. Hinton casts this story against a working-class background. With an astoundingly realistic portrayal of drug abuse and its aftermath, she further strengthens her mark as the voice of young adults.

This great volume including both novels is sure to introduce a whole new audience to Hinton's outstanding talent. (Amy Barkat)

    Generation to Generation

    I am a 41 year old mother of a 13 year old son. When I was in Jr. High School these books were required reading. I loved all of S.E. Hinton's books. And now I am so glad that my son is at the age to read them and enjoy them as much as I did.

    - The Outsiders -

    This book was my favorite for the longest time. I read it for 7th grade and I totally fell in love with the character named Ponyboy. It is such a strong book and really sends out a message that all teenagers should read. Anyone who loves realistic fiction or just an awesome book, should definatly check this one out! :]

    The Outsiders

    I think this book is the best book I have ever read in my whole life. I have never cried in books before, and when I read this, I cried twice. I would highly recommend this to people.

    The best Book I ever read

    This book was very good, it's outstanding I never read a book that felt like it was real. As I was reading 'The Outsiders' I felt as if I was there, not just reading the book, but couold actually picture myself in the book. I felt as if i was there when all this things happened. Most of all it's was not just one book, but it was like two books combined together but under the same cover. This is the most OutStanding book I've had ever read. If I had to I would read it a hundred times, I highly reccommand that others should raed this book, and enjoy as much as i have, it's worth reading, it might give some people good advice. It not only teaches you life lessons but the true meaning of friendship

    the best book

    This is the best book. We read this book in 7th grade. This book thought me that it was not just the 'black on white', but a 'white on white' thing too.

    The Outsiders

    This book teaches alot. After reading it you can see the 'other side of the story' when passing a group of kids who seem to be living on the edge. It gives a lot to learn from.
