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.

Think of your favourite book so far, then forget about it and read this... Life changing and inspirationally brilliant.
About half way through and really enjoying it. Makes me want to hang out with my friends and travel the roads.
