I think my fave character would have to be Ponyboy. Sue me but he is. he is my fave greaser of all time. He's not rude and vulgar and perverted like some of his friends. He's funny and sweet and he loves to read (I love to read too!) and he's smart and he likes sunsets. he is a sensitive greaser and I dig that
My favorite character is Dallas. I consider him a hero. This basically sums it up:
In spite of his bad reputation, the Greasers can always count on Dally. When Two-Bit breaks the school windows, Dally takes the blame and goes to jail. When Pony and Johnny approach him for help after Bob is killed, he unhesitatingly does all he can for them; he gives them dry clothes, money, a loaded gun, and instructions for going to a hide-out. When the police question him about the whereabouts of Pony and Johnny, he misdirects them to Texas in order to protect his friends. He comes to visit them in the abandoned church to make sure that they are all right and do not need anything. When Johnny says he is going to surrender, he tries to talk him out of it, for he does not want his friend to become hardened in prison. When Johnny is trapped inside the burning building, he hits Pony across the back to keep him from going inside and saves Johnny himself, without thinking of his own safety. When Johnny, his “pet,” dies, Dally goes crazy. He robs a store and then points an unloaded gun at the police, inviting them to shoot him. It is as if life has become too much for him to bear.
My favorite characters are first johnny because he's like me-shy and not very confident but is cute. And the other is dally because he's funny and I've always liked bad boys plus he's super tuff and yet he still cried like me when johnny died.
Although I love all, if I had to choose it would be Ponyboy. I, even more so recently relate to him a great deal. How his brother tries to do what's best for him, but it being a little overwhelming is how I feel most of the time. Ponyboy also tries to impress people by acting "tuff", can be pressured by friends. I don't know why, but when I first read the Outsiders in 7th grade I thought he was "Meh" but now, I'm in high school and I like and admire him a lot. If he can make it with more than I have on my plate so can I!
