On the road by Jack Kerouac

I have just read On the Road by Jack Kerouac. On the road is deemed the Bible of Beat generation, a generation interested in partying, having a good time and travel. This novel tells the story of a person who travels throughout America several times.

In the first part, he travels doing autostop. Soon thereafter, he travels America with an iconic beat character, Dean Moriarty, in a car. I love the two first parts of the novel, but later on, the travels seem to have no point. The book is comprised of 5 chapters. The characters travel all the time.

It is an interesting book, and it is very beautiful to discover the places the characters visit but I thought the book was going to be better and I do not think Dean Moriarty is so special.

I have published 4 books, 3 in Spanish ("Ser un Tusitala", "El verano de Natalie Davis", "El cumpleaños de Natalie Davis") and one in English that was published in the United States ("The adventures of Halcombe Norilsk and other gripping tales"). Writing is my passion.

  1. On the road, it is the classic tale of a young person realizing there is more to where they are then, where they are.

    It is the story of coming of age in a time of turmoil. You see yes, the beat generation was about parties and freedom. But they were also in open rebellion against a government.
