More about On the Road

Yep, more. For anyone who hasn't heard enough about OTR's 50th---

(I especially liked the part about whether it was just a "boy book.")

That was interesting to listen to. I can see both sides. :mort3: I DO NOT think it was poorly written, though. :thanks!: for sharing that, fansmom!
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Thanks so much fansmom, for the sharing the OTR piece, it was very interesting, I can see were Hillary is coming from, I don't agree, I think she is looking at OTR from a 21st century distance and sense of propriety. I also don't think it was poorly written.{coincidentally the Into the Wild piece is also interesting}.
