    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"
    "What a waste of time!"
    Overall

    Never have a listened in such wonder that anyone would actually think this is a worthwhile book. It's nice to learn something new or at least be entertained - but this one offers neither, unless you want to hear about doing drugs, stealing gas and cigarettes, having sex with as many women as you can and calling a grand adventure. It was just boring.

    When Isabel Archer, a young American woman with looks, wit, and imagination, arrives in Europe, she sees the world as "a place of brightness, of free expression, of irresistible action". She turns aside from suitors who offer her their wealth and devotion to follow her own path.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldn't tell you if this was a good book as the narration is so poor I have not been able to get past the first chapter and I couldn't understand the narrator. Where did you find this woman!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Henry James again?

    Maybe, with a good narrator
