Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

On The Road, the most famous of Jack Kerouac's works, is not only the soul of the Beat movement and literature, but one of the most important novels of the century. Like nearly all of Kerouac's writing, On The Road is thinly fictionalized autobiography, filled with a cast made of Kerouac's real life friends, lovers, and fellow travelers. Narrated by Sal Paradise, one of Kerouac's alter-egos, On the Road is a cross-country bohemian odyssey that not only influenced writing in the years since its 1957 publication but penetrated into the deepest levels of American thought and culture. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From Library Journal

Who hasn't wished to be "on the road," free from daily responsibilities, crossing vast geographical distances, preoccupied largely with sex, music, alcohol, and conversation with friends? Kerouac carved a place in American literature by capturing that common longing with his characters Sal and Dean and their intermittent, rambling trips throughout the Western United States and Mexico. On the Road is an excellent choice for the audio format, since Kerouac's use of language seems even richer when the words are spoken aloud. Narrator David Carridine's nonchalant manner is a perfect match to the work's tone. A necessary addition to most collections. Be aware, however, that this is a reissue of a 1986 recording.
