I read it, many times. Quite good, quite beautiful, quite...Kerouac. My only qualm is with the transcribed tape-recorded conversations between Kerouac & Cassady inserted between certain chapters. I understand that he was "experimenting" and trying to "push the boundaries" of the novel, as it were, but to me it ended up as more of a distraction than any bit of significant art.
