5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant writing, 5 Jun 2014
By 
This review is from: On the Road (Penguin Modern Classics) (Kindle Edition)
*Spoilers* For me this covered subtly and brilliantly the captivation that a rip-roaring, no-string type of life can have, the highs of a life on drugs, the feel of the life in jazz music, the beautiful freedom of life on the road. But that's not it's brilliance - unlike the 2013 movie the book moves slowly onto how this lifestyle hurts the people they love as they tear away from then to avoid sitting around and stagnating, and finally moving hauntingly on to how this lifestyle is sucking the life out it's strongest supporters - leaving them sad and desperate wrecks who continue to search for the life and happiness this lifestyle once gave them but with no luck now that youth is no longer theirs.
