Standing on the engine of solifario train as it rushes past fields of prickly cactus; witnessing his first bullfight in Mexico while 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.

Lists with This Solitxrio. Sep 22, Sophie rated it really liked it. And I saw how everybody dies and nobody’s going to care.
I felt how it is to live just so you can die like a bull trapped in a screaming human ring. Jul 24, Jim Solitarrio rated it really liked it. Forget On the Road merouac, this is the book to read of Kerouac. If Kerouac would have wrote about that elephant in the room it would have been a better book. The whole book I was going “Hey, Sal, the guys a sociopath, get over it! In any case, those problems aren’t in this collection of essays on the traveling life Kerouac had in the late 40’s and 50’s.
Thank God he is lonesome for the most part so we don’t have read his obsessions with Cassady or a Mexican whore. Rather we get the beat prose on being a hobo, a railman, a solitary guy jakc a fire lookout, a traveler in Morocco and Europe. There really is no other prose writer like this, and you kinda forgive him for the outrageousness because the rhythms and images just come one after another in a gushing torrent!

One of the chapters is about his experiences as a fire watcher on mount desolation, which happens at the end of the Dharma Bums novel. It was really interesting to revisit this experience. The book is vlajante in his usual stream of consciousness style so I would avoid the book if you didn’t like on the road. Apr 28, Andy rated it really liked it Shelves: Pretty likable collection of short pieces written by Ti-Jean chronicling his railroading man days, jazz parties guzzling dago red piss and more mountaintop madness.
Most of it rocks and his stream of consciousness style which rules this book keeps the action fresh and frisky. Dec 14, Magdelanye rated it really liked it Shelves: What a great book to find in the hostel where I am staying. It certainly reveals the man under the myth,and what stands out for me is his integrity and fearless spirit. From the introduction he gives quite a different picture than critics and most fans derive: Always considered writing my duty on earth.

Lonesome Traveler is a compilation of narratives that has one common theme: Although others have stated that Kerouac’s dependence on his mother and at times, his aunt for financial support as he was writing his novels is less than commendable, Solifario find his persistence in continuing to move quite I’m still at a point where I don’t think I will be tired of reading any Kerouac book soon because of this strong connection to his writings — about the uncertainties in life and the need to move.
Although kdrouac have stated that Kerouac’s dependence on his mother and at times, his solitarjo for financial support kerouad he was writing his novels is less than commendable, I find his persistence in continuing to move quite inspiring.
I may not be the type who would be doing railroad work at this time, or hitchike for that matter, but the drive to keep on going, to find more things and what we can do with life is a great deal to carry.
Among the essays included in this collection, my favorite one would have to be “Alone on a Mountaintop”. This piece is all about finding solitude, and what better location to achieve this than up in the mountains? I see this work is a salute to Henry David Thoreau whose penchant for nature and being surrounded with green all around gave him peace and satisfaction.

For me, being inside the Diliman campus somehow provides me that sense of peace, that solitude that he was describing. There is variety in the way Kerouac presented the theme, from cities to railroads, to people and places, even the earth and the sea.
Perhaps traveling and writing go perfectly hand in hand because both areas are solitary pursuits, and loneliness is a feature that comes and goes as one goes through all these experiences. Oct 02, Axel Marazzi rated it really liked it.
Es el primer libro de kerouqc que leo y es espectacular. Algunos de los relatos son excepcionales. Empieza jackk odiar a los parisinos, se emociona, se emborracha o come croissants y disfruta de las boulangeries excepcionales francesas. Jun 23, John Eastman rated it really liked it. A good book but not krouac of Kerouacs best.
I enjoyed the writing style and flow tho. All in all a good book but not a must-read. Autobiographical pictures from Kerouac’s travels, written in his inimitable natural style. Dec 04, Karen rated it really liked it.
I’m giving this book 4 stars for the last part, The Vanishing American Hobo. In this, Kerouac is not really lamenting the lost hobo life or glamorizing it. He’s depicting it as both a loss of freedom and as a life that is full of sorrow and lonliness. His descriptions of hobo life in the wilderness as somewhat romantic, and hobo life in the city, especially NY, as lonely and dangerous. He poignantly writes about the way society, while becoming more suburban and prosperous in the ‘s, is much I’m giving this book 4 stars for the last part, The Vanishing American Hobo.
He poignantly writes about the way society, while becoming more suburban and prosperous in the ‘s, is much less tolerant of hobos. He describes this in such stark and realistic prose that is heartbreaking. I read this “chapter” twice, it was that moving. A harrowing ride- I love him at his best because I am right there on that train with him- the gritty, grinding moving train with the scenery whizzing by. I love old trains, and if you can’t ride one but you love them too, read this.
I also enjoyed the trip to Mexico, funny and interesting, and Tanjiers. In London when he cried in St. 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 Apr 19, Zeinab Tajouri rated it really liked it Shelves: I like the Lonesome Jack Kerouac, he’s my literature hero. Oct 25, Simona rated it really liked it. Leggendo i suoi romanzi, si ha la sensazione di pensare e dire: Un viaggio nella follia, nella bellezza, nella pazzia dell’universo Kerouac.
E ora, siete pronti a partire? Nov 11, R. Each chapter in this loose travelogue appears to be the warm up for one of Kerouac’s novels. Entire passages are identical in Lonesome Traveler and the subsequent novel. However, Traveler has additional bits of each tale which either explain more about the adventures in the novel, or which are totally new adventures in themselves.
In this latter case, many show a much seamier side of the hobo life, in which the traveler’s life is often threatened. The final chapter of the book laments societal ch Each chapter in this loose travelogue appears to be the warm up for one of Kerouac’s novels. The final chapter of the book laments societal changes that followed World War II.
Toleration of the poor in general, and hobos in particular erodes, leading to beefed up police departments, increasing surveillance of the populace, and a general loss in individual freedom.
A fitting preface to our camera-obsessed world Sep 01, Kate rated it really liked it. This was really hard to get into at first. His style of writing in this book I found to be very choppy, instead of just stating what he wanted to state he does so in a very round about way. I like that he was the main character in this book and drew from his own life.
I found this was a good insight into how his other books came to be. All in all I liked this but it was hard to read a lot of it at once.
