On the road???

Posted to What Are You Reading?

A heartbreaking work of staggering genious is what i'm reading at the present(John Eggar) BUT... thats not what I want to talk about.

I've just finished reading 'On the Road'. I'm from Ireland and have just returned from spending some time touring, mainly around LA and I was interested to read about Sals journey and compare it to mine. The book was good, i'll not go into why i thought this but I'm new to the literary world and I want to hear why you all (i'm assuming) love this book. Show it in depth, what did you think it was about. I want to know.
