User Review  - Natia Liparteliani - Goodreads

Now that I have finished the book, I have to say, that I am very confused, even more than before! During the process of reading it I could not relax. All I could think was: “Why? What's the point ... Read full review

Review: On the Road (Duluoz Legend)

User Review  - Vanya - Goodreads

I've never had such a contradictory opinion about a book, in short it puzzled me. I don't find the plot interesting, nor the characters intriguing, but I love Kerouac's language and his expression. So ... Read full review

User Review  - Shawnya - Goodreads

I know, I know- this is a classic. Maybe my expectations were too high, but it was just such a weird rambling thing with such little plot. I was bored. I was annoyed. And overall, it was disappointing. Not a "bad" book, but certainly not one I want to pick up again. Read full review

User Review  - Gijs - Goodreads

It took me awhile to finish this book since it's just so extraordinary. It's nothing like I've ever read before and that's what gives it it charm. It's completely over the top and mental. Read this if ... Read full review

User Review  - Patricia C. - Goodreads

While I understand why people, especially young people, are drawn to this story, I just can't relate to the characters. I hate Dean, he's the most abuseive character and everyone idolises him as an ... Read full review
