Publisher's Summary

"The only people for me are the mad ones," wrote Jack Kerouac, "the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars."

On the Road is the classic story of two such characters: Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, who set off on an odyssey through mid-century underground America, fueled by jazz, sex, drugs, mystical philosophy, and a limitless passion for experience.

    "Amazon.com links incorrectly!"

    If you linked here from the Amazon.com page for the wonderful Matt Dillon narration of ON THE ROAD... well, you are out of luck. Audible downloads this one. Eh. Not the same. Dillon sounds like a young guy regaling his travels with his good friend Dean as he reaches that moment of adulthood when you realize that those benny-dreams are ending and new chapters (whole books!) are starting.

    Carradine's voice is... is it wrong to say too old? Too tired? Lacks the energy. More of a man in the December of his days desperately recalling his May days, but...

    Ain't the same. Ain't the same.

    Fives star book, but this ain't a 5 star reading.
