Setting The setting of this book takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The book describes some parts of Tulsa like , the old drive in movie theaters. They only had about three or four of those movie theaters. The story would have been different if it took place in the desert because in the book they always had jackets and stuff like that. Which in the desert it is really hot.
Conflict • The conflict is that the Greasers and Socs are rival gangs and they keep fighting. The Socs are always jumping other Greasers, but they are finally going to settle it out by a big fight with all of the gangs to see which is the best gang.
Summary of Plot • The Socs see Johnny and Ponyboy with girl Socs and they get mad. Then, the Socs talk mess about Greasers and Johnny and Ponyboy talk about the Socs. The Socs get mad and start fighting them and Bob and a couple other Socs grab Ponyboy and drown him in the fountain. Johnny gets up and kills Bob. When Ponyboy goes home Darry is mad because he gets home late and hits Ponyboy for yelling at him then Ponyboy and Johnny leave the city. When they get to the country some kids are trapped in a church when it’s on fire. Johnny and Ponyboy save them, but some lumber falls on Johnny and goes to the hospital. Later, Johnny dies in the hospital & Dally got killed by cops. Ponyboy comes back and writes about the whole book again.
Theme • Fighting doesn’t solve anything. • Text Evidence 1: “I killed him.” Page 56 • Text Evidence 2: “Sure little buddy, were not going to fight anymore.” Page 176 • Text Evidence 3: “Greaser’s can’t walk alone too much or they will get jumped.” Page 2
Point of View • This point of view takes place in 1st person. It is in 1st person because Ponyboy is the one telling the story and he uses words like: I and me. The story would’ve been different if it had a different point of view because you wouldn’t understand who has telling the book.
Symbolism • I chose these pictures because the book represents fighting, death, and love for your brothers.
Recommendation • I would recommend this book to people that like to read a good book with lots of drama, action, and a little bit of sadness. At first when I saw the cover and the title I thought that it was going to be a boring book, but when I read the first few pages I didn’t want to stop reading it.
