I like Dally because Matt Dillon plays him and Matt's my favorite actor. :)

Out of the main characters, Johnny cause he's the one I connected with and could relate too.

Out of the other characters Curly Shepard, cause I dunno.. I like bad boys.

My favorite is Sodapop! I love the way he seems to understand everybody, even if he's not the smartest, and I love the final part of the book where he confesses his feelings to Pony and Darry.

In both the book and the movie, the answer is the same. Dallas Winston.

He has a certain bad boy appeal, a rebel quality that appeals to me, and his carelessness and lack of repsect for the rules. Despite this tough exterior, he has a soft side for Johnny, and he shows it, too, upon occasion.

Darry is my favorite. I'm fortunate to have an older brother who would take me in no matter what, but from what I hear (I may not be right here, so don't quote me or anything) not many older brothers would take in younger siblings, especially when they have so much going for them. I just think it's awesome that he would work so hard to take care of the two people he cares about the most.

Both in the book and movie - Dallas Winston.

I also seem drawn to the "tragic hero" types or the "flawed heroes". Dally is not your knight in shining armour, but like Pony says "I didn't like him, but he was smart and you had to respect him.".

I think there's so much about Dally we didn't get to know and never will know, and I like that aspect of "Who was he really? How did he get how he is?"

And of course, his desperation at losing Johnny is heart rending. It's sad when you see he actually did care about something - and maybe if he hadn't lost Johnny, he wouldn't have lost himself.

Matt does a great job with Dally in the film - he's completely made me think of Dally in his terms.

My favorite characters is soda and Pony I of likes both very gladly.
Thus the question about the why… is emergency in such a way simply ton to who.
With soda I more refer more ton the characters into the book to described, ME please thus Rodney Harvey more better than soda, he reflect ME the described again.
However with 13 years I which thus with Rob into love… * sigh *… one already stay saw I the film that ago, there for the roofridge time to.
By the series however Rodney grew ME very much ton the heart and pleased themselves then from times too times more better.
With Pony I like the child as it think and feel, refer ton the film and the book.

My favorite character would be either Dally or Ponyboy. They both remind me of myself!

I love ponyboy because even though hes a greaser he still sees himself as an individual and dally is just awesome. He's a diamond in the rough.

Hey mine is Dally because he didn't care what anybody thought about him & he said what he wanted.. Also because he's kind of the opposite of me & i admire him for it. i think that sometimes it's good to not care about things just so you don't get stressed and worried about everything. even though he died in the end. i still cry over that.

I think the Rodney Harvey that Soda 79 is talking about comes from the television series.
So she's saying that she likes Sodapop and Ponyboy in their different ways from the book, the film and the series?

i like all of the characters cause they have different personalities. But my personal favs are ponyboy cause he close to my age and is the kid brother in his family. for my family im the kid sister.
Soda cause he easygoing and content and hes understand almost everything. He reminds me of my older sister Lana.
And Darry. he gave up sooooo much for ponyboy and soda and supported both of them.

Basically, i like the Curtis boys. :D
