Publisher's Summary

"The only people for me are the mad ones," wrote Jack Kerouac, "the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars." On the Road is the classic story of two such characters: Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, who set off on an odyssey through mid-century underground America, fueled by jazz, sex, drugs, mystical philosophy, and a limitless passion for experience.

David Carradine's voice is Sal Paradise.

I have read this book several times. I still cried when Carradine read the last lines. Perfect.

Breathy & stomach growls

The narrator had a nice voice but the constant swallowing sounds, stomach growls & background noise took me out of the story because it was too distracting.
