On The Road
Read this during college graduation week in June of 1962 and immediately after getting the hard earned degree, I hit the road hitching across the US from Brooklyn to Long Beach. Thanks to
Jack I had one of the greatest timees of my life. Too bad it can't be done in the 21st century as easily as back in the day. Reading it again, and soon to reread Orwells "Down And Out In Paris And London".

Long and winding tale of a few young men looking for happiness in all the wrong places. A description of their lives, unhindered by any form of plot or character development. Superb writing, but going nowhere slow.

User Review  - Tony Shepherd - Goodreads

It may seem trite, but this novel changed my life. I read it for the first time the summer before my senior year of high school, and I have been held by it for over 20 years. If you haven't explored the beauty of this masterpiece, you're doing yourself a disservice. Read full review
