    Though Jack Kerouac began thinking about the novel that was to become On the Road as early as 1947, it was not until three weeks in April 1951 that he wrote the first full draft that was satisfactory to him. Typed out as one long, single-spaced paragraph on eight long sheets of tracing paper that he later taped together to form a 120-foot scroll, this document is among the most significant, celebrated, and provocative artifacts in contemporary American literary history.

    Chris says: "Stellar, if you know what you're getting into"
    "The narrator is great"

    Yes if one has a good chunk of time to spend with it

    the jazz scenes convey both what the author see and hears; the nature of the beauty of the moment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book gave me a new point of view. a little existential, but mostly an illustration of a time gone by.
