    Happily Ever After :)
    i loved the way it was ending!!! they left tons mysterys and made it in some sort of a hangcliffer! they make the end the most dynamic and iintersting pasrt of the whole book and it is very accurate. the act of suiscide commited by dally made it even more amazing and raised many questions as "why would DALLY do that?" "how come dally cared for jhonny" "why would he care for jhonny" and you acctualy realise just then, how much dally loved jhonny and how much he did care, maybe even more then pony! but thats different, dally doesnt care for anybody... and the first person he acctualy loved for,, dies... and i love the part when soda just leaves the house out of fustrastion and sadness and the brothers follow him and the finnaly reunit all together!! its so sweet seeing their way of interacting between themselves :P and i alsoo thought that the way they just left it hanging, as in, alot of questions stil need to be answerd, as in "will ponyboy and sode be put into a boys home?" "how will the gang get along now that dally and jhonny are off?" "will ponyboys grades go up? will he attend collage?" "does he REALLY mean it when he say s that he will get more along with his older brother darry?" and much MUCH more!! and i think it was a really smart way to end the story In "and i started with""There was two things on my mind, the car, and **"" <-- i cant remember :L... but it was a reallly smart idea to put this :) this novel was a really good book and i enjoyed reading it and discussing and asking questions and repling to them, going along the chapters.

    Its definitely going to be different but to be hohnest the younger ones in the group and lads who lost a close friend will have to recover first. I agree there must be some sort of role changing with in the group if it is held in tact after the happenings of one night. People with in the group surely tone it down for a while as the rest of the group comes to

    Ending it all
    I think a better ending is in order. Also, what happened to Cherry Valance? I don't think its possible for her to just disappear from their lives after the hearing. The authoress should have given more information before ending the story. Of course, i would'nt expect a happily ever after, but a little more info would'nt hurt, would it?

    Ending it all
    I think having the pressure of the girl he loved leave him and having yet another close person die got way too much, and then on top of that he had been sleepless over ponyboy, and i think watching darry and pony get straight back into arguing pulled the last string, if that makes sense?

    Ending it all
    Had soda had enough of the brother falling out with each other and the arguing? is that why he cracked or was it that he didnt want another fall out ending up with a result like the last one?
    Do you think there is something missing in the story? if so what????

    Discussion
    After reading a few of the other discussions, i can't say i don't agree with them. The book was a fantastic story and gave me a lot of temptation to read ahead of the class, HOWEVER, the book did have a bad and very abrupt ending to it. The authoress did have a good storyline, but in my opinion, messed up with the ending.

    After losing two of the gang members, this would, of course, affect the gang a lot. Maybe Two-Bit would stop being so cheerful and stop cracking jokes at every sentence. Maybe Steve would take over Dally's reputation of being a tough guy and become a hood. What do you think might happen to the gang?

    Dicuss the ending. Please respond here :)
    Well Jody, Ponyboy did mention that Dally was going to do something stupid like kill himself sooner or later. Judging by his recklesness, I agree with Ponyboy.

    Discuss ending
    There might be a second book, if you don't take in the fact that she wrote this book AGES ago. Like before we were born, and when our parents were in diapers. But if there was a second book, you never know, maybe someone will kill someone else or something. It depends on the plot, so you can't exactly say that it won't be a good book, and it doesn't have to be a mystery, she could say that...For example, Sodapop and Ponyboy had to go off to a boys' home and how they struggled to stick together or something.

    Dicuss the ending. Please respond here :)
    Technically, I wouln'd have expected Johnny to kill Bob, but then again, I wouldn't have thought the Socs would go so far as to almost kill Ponyboy. I didn't exactly think 'Okay now Dally is going to kill himself', but you could kinda tell that he was going to do something stupid and crazy, especially when Ponyboy mentioned Johnny was the only think Dally loved.
