I started reading this on the US election day. Kerouac’s spontaneous prose, with its long, strangly, and rhhythmic sentences is an erratic instrument indeed. In these chapters it was fun to roam around with him, but Railroad Earth and The Vanishing American Hobo made this book a very worthwhile read This was an interesting read, but only recommended for those deeply interested in the beats.

Sometimes I felt that I was cheating Kerouac a little bit as Jakc raced through each section, following the quick pace of his writing style. Kerouac seeks to illustrate, through his travels of the earth and soul, how much people are missing when they focus on the wrong things in life, and the prophet in Kerouac takes full control rather than the drunkard and hitchhiker.

Lonesome Traveler, by Jack Kerouac 1 18 Jan 07, Standing on the engine of a train as it rushes past fields of prickly cactus; witnessing his first bullfight in Mexico vizjante high on opium; catching up with the beat night life in New York; burying himself in the snow-capped mountains of As he roams the US, Mexico, Morocco, Paris and London, Jack Kerouac breathlessly records, in prose of pure poetry, the life of the road.
