Getting into Krouac...

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I'm just getting into Jack Kerouac and have been battling whether to start off with his famous "On the Road", or the friend recommended "Dharma Bums"? I don't want to read On the road to be wel read, i want to read a good book. My friend swears by "Dharma Bums" as the best. But i;m still unsure of the plots in these two. To those who've read them could you please offer your suggestions as well as a brief overview of the respective book.
-Thank You
