I loved On The Road by Jack Kerouac
on 4 October 2014
I loved On The Road by Jack Kerouac, but I really struggled through this book. The first part, taken mostly from his journal kept whilst living in isolation as a fire look-out on Desolation Peak, was particularly bad. I persevered and found the book improved once Jack leaves the mountain. From here the book details his cross-country trip down the West coast of the United States, detailing his travels and shenanigans down to Mexico.
