Send Kerouac back On The Road

This book – although on my list due to it’s cult status – was definitely not my cup of tea. It is semi-autobiographical and unfortunately reads more like non-fiction than fiction. The cast of characters, some of whom are based on prominent figures of the time, are all in love with the idea of going out on the road, and leading a kind of baseless, wandering life, going from town to town and woman to woman. I simply found it difficult to relate to any of the characters. I would not have even finished it if it had not been so short. I would be interested to hear from anyone who would like to passionately argue the case.
