    Few novels have had as profound an impact on American culture as On the Road. Pulsating with the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, illicit drugs, and the mystery and promise of the open road, Kerouac's classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be "beat" and has inspired generations of writers, musicians, artists, poets, and seekers who cite their discovery of the book as the event that "set them free".

    Guillermo says: "My Favorite Narration and a Wonderful Book"
    "Remarkable Characterization"
    Overall

    This text has obviously stood the test of time, ushering in the groovy mindset of the 60's. Mr. Kerouac certainly sets the tone for a decade. A fine book.

    However, my main praise is reserved for the narrator, Will Patton. He gives a voice, and a whole 3 dimensional characterization of the unstoppable, wild, yet lovable Dean Moriarity. An unforgettable job. Worth a listen just to admire Will do his job with this "rat".

    What if our beliefs were not what divided us, but what pulled us together? In Have a Little Faith, Mitch Albom offers a beautifully written story of a remarkable eight-year journey between two worlds - two men, two faiths, two communities - that will inspire readers everywhere.

    Dana says: "Fantastic Read!"
    "The Horror, The Horror, The Horror"
    Overall

    Strike One: The Author reads his own work. This is rarely a good idea, as regular Audible listeners know.
    Strike Two: The author is from New Jersey by way of Detroit. I can think of 47 other states that I would prefer a narrator to be from.
    Strike Three: The author HAS A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT! What was the author thinking? What was the producer of this work thinking? Not much.
    Strike Four: He writes of something he has no real understanding of. Though it is a spiritual memoir, unfortunately his journey is from nowhere to nowhere.
    I gave it one star only because of the minimally compelling main character.
