Why The Sixties Happened

by Carl S on Sep 29, 2011

A few years ago, 50 years after its initial publication, and 35 years since I had read it for the first time myself, I loaned my battered paperback copy of 'On The Road' to a young friend of mine who had asked me "What should I read next?". Her reaction was, as I would have hoped, overwhelmingly positive. "It made me want to go hitchhiking" she told me. She didn't go, of course, that's considered too dangerous these days, but she caught the spirit of Kerouac from those yellowed old pages and that made me happy. It made me remember myself from the days before I was twenty. When the world was wide-open in front of me with all my limitless imagination and inexhaustible energy to carry me forward. Those two-and-a-half-hundred pages created in a Benzedrine-fueled typing frenzy spoke to both of us across generations as great writing is meant to do. Jack's tales of Casady, Ginsberg, Burroughs, and the rest would continue in his books that followed but the spirit and zest of 'On The Road' stand alone. Bob Dylan said of 'On The Road', "It changed my life like it changed everyone else's". Myself and my young friend were lucky enough to experience it that same way.

I read it in high school and I remember liking it at the time. I remember feeling sort of swept away by it, which I'm sure was caused by his stream of consciousness writing. Sometimes it didn't make sense to me, which could (again) be due to his writing style, or possibly it was my age and maturity level, or maybe it was both. I didn't always like what the characters were up to, but I think I liked the characters themselves. I should read it again to see how it makes me feel as an adult.

Made me want to go on the road

by kandimba on Oct 5, 2008

Two friends travel across the USA and Mexico, without a dime in their pockets. This is the main story of this book, so enthusiastically written that I couldn't stop reading it once I've started. One of my favorite books.
