it was amazing
Read from March 25 to April 02, 2012

Perhaps one of my favorite Kerouac novels...perhaps one of my favorite novels period. I always pick up his writing due to some insatiable need for clarity and understanding. Kerouac can write about anything and capture such an incredible shared human experience within his pages, something that is even more apparent because he writes about the things that are burning in his mind and heart. He writes about them all in such a way that you ache with his aches, and your mind becomes his in an altogether lonesome, and threadbare world. Although his way of living, writing, and processing always seemed somewhat slapdash, he has, at the same time, some of the most well-versed and clarity-filled articulations I have ever read.
