Some classic novels I've read I can see why they are considered classics. Others I question their status.
On the Road is about the many travels of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty across America. Throughout their travels, they discover what America is.
One thing I found interesting is that Sal and Dean are actually author Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady. The long paragraphs throughout the book are somewhat daunting, but keep in mind that Kerouac wrote the book on one long piece of paper. But nonetheless, On the Road is an interesting read.
My Rating: ****
