Book Review -- On the Road by Jack Kerouac

I've been on a kick recently to try and read some classic novels, and I pulled On the Road by Jack Kerouac off of my bookshelf, where it has languished unread for a couple of decades. As its title implies, it is a story about the protagonist's travels back and forth across the United States with friends and acquaintances. It is known as one of the important books of the beat generation, and it actually has dialog that includes phrases like "real gone cat" to describe someone enjoying jazz. It was a short read, but enjoyable.
