On the Road swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat. Now recognized as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Walt Whitman than Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion.
Contains an introduction by Ann Charters, as well as suggestions for further reading of acclaimed criticisms and references.

It starts off a little bit exciting....but dam 5 parts describing nothing but almost the same trip over and over. It numbs the brain a little. Don’t let me put you off though, especially if it’s the type of book your into. Just not my thing.
