Shelves: bio , usa , relationships , travel , mexico , audible , classics , read Jack Kerouac is the author of this book. If you are considering whether to read the book you must decide which edition to read. The book first came out in with the title On the Road. In , the 50th anniversary edition of the book was published under the title: On the Road: the Original Scroll , which is what I have chosen to read and what I am reviewing.
This, the Scroll Jack Kerouac — is the author of this book. This, the Scroll version, is a transcription of the original draft typed over twenty days from April 6 through April 26, It was typed as one long paragraph on sheets of tracing paper which Kerouac taped together to form a foot 37 m scroll.
This "final draft" was not totally new, being based on earlier journal entries. Kerouac writes of four road-trip adventures taken with his buddy Neal Cassady — , three across the United States and one to Mexico City.
The first trip was taken in In the first edition pseudonyms were used, not so in the 50th anniversary edition, which is also said to be more sexually explicit. The spontaneity of the text is said to be more evident in the Scroll. Sex, alcohol, drugs, theft and other immoral behavior do make up a large part of the events described. That is certainly not the point of the book!
What this book does draw well is the friendship between Jack and Neal and other friends too. It captures the feel of the Beat movement, which later became the Hippie movement we all know so well. I cannot say I admire Jack, Neal or their friends, but I do understand what they were searching for….
I am glad I read the book because it recalled for me some of the dreams I had as a youth, albeit in less dramatic form. The belief that one could and would live life to the fullest. Then comes reality, not bad, but more down to earth. Kerouac captures well the feel of a road trip across America at the end of the 40s. Of course not in fancy hotels, but instead hitchhiking and totally broke. That is to say really being on-the-road. What might you see? Who might you meet?
How does the feel of the land change? Some people say this book has religious undertones. There are portions that could definitely have been tightened. I am glad I read it, but now I am glad it is over.
The audiobook is narrated by John Ventimiglia. In his reading he wonderfully captures the spirit of the Beat movement. I have given the narration five stars.
