“The only people for me are the mad ones,” wrote Jack Kerouac, “the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” On the Road is the classic story of two such characters: Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, who set off on an odyssey through 1950s underground America, fueled by jazz, sex, drugs, mystical philosophy, and a limitless passion for experience.

    " I had to stop reading this one part-way through... so sexist & overrated. "

    " I liked this version of On the Road a lot better than the reprinted version. I love how raw this book is and I can imagine Kerouac telling it in his own voice. The only thing that was kind of annoying was how it's pretty much all one big, long paragraph. If I hadn't read it in a day or two, I had difficulty finding my place again. This is the greatest wanderlust book I've read and I do enjoy it a lot. Definitely worth a read. "
