๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

I don't remember if I read the book before or after the movie came out...but I enjoyed both quite a bit.  This story has always stuck with me, along with the "stay gold" quote.  It's a classic story for a reason, from the foreshadowing to the quotable quotes.  With some of my all-time favorite characters to this day...Johnny, Ponyboy, Dary, Soda Pop, Two-Bit, and even Dallas...awe man, how could you not love this book, even with its tendencies to be somewhat corny.  The excellent narrator of this captured the voices of the actors who played each of these characters perfectly...especially Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, and Ralph Macchio.   He made it feel like the actors themselves narrated this.
