Jack Kerouac tells of his travels across the nation, and the stories of fascinating characters he meets along the way such as Neal Cassady and Allen Ginsberg. A wonderful view of mid twentieth century life among the people who became known as the "Beats."

Tedious at times. Still, a classic with great insight into the mysterious Beat generation.

Jack Kerouac's classic beat novel is fun read, with stylish prose and quirky characters.

Brutally dull and self-indulgent. I had to force myself through it. 310 pages of blah blah blah. A generation of people did nothing but act like self-absorbed, pseudo-intellectual, irresponsible a$$holes? Good to know.
