On the Road because I think I misread it, and want to see why everyone likes it so much.

Isn't his slang made up, though? I bought the book a little while ago to save for a time when I'm not swamped with other books, but I read the first page and looked up a few of the words, and they were all credited to him alone. Then I read the back and it mentioned something about fictitious slang. So pressumably, no one is familiar with it first time through.

Written during a critical period of his life, Some of the Dharma is a key volume in Jack Kerouac's vast autobiographical canon. He began writing it in 1953 as reading notes on Buddhism intended for his friend, poet Allen Ginsberg. As Kerouac's Buddhist study and meditation practice intensified, what had begun as notes evolved into a vast and all-encompassing work of nonfiction into which he poured his life, incorporating poems, haiku, prayers, journal entries, meditations, fragments of letters, ideas about writing, overheard conversations, sketches, blues, and more. The final manuscript, completed in 1956, was as visually complex as the writing: each page was unique, typed in patterns and interlocking shapes. The elaborate form which Kerouac so painstakingly gave the book on his manual typewriter is re-created in this typeset facsimile.

All of Chuck Palahniuks books are pretty much the same. They can get quite tiresome if you read them all (well, I read most of them) in a short-ish space of time like I did. The same angry, sarcastic tone throughout them all....they're OK, just a lot of cynicism to take in at once.

At the moment I am reading Herzog on Herzog which is fantastic and hammers home how much of a fucking genius he is. Have also started reading 54 by Wu Ming but haven't read enough to form an impression. (more info here www.wumingfoundation.com and you can download it here as well if you are so inclined)

Great. I'll try and find that.

I just finished On the Road a few minutes ago and thought it was wonderful. Although, the end seemed like it was just trying to finish up. Understand? I think some may understand what I mean with that. It was a great read nonetheless.

It's really good, but like I said it can get kind of tedious. I've been reading through it here and there since I was in high school (for 7 years or so). Plus it's cool as hell that he was writing it for Allen.

It is made up but based on the Russian language.

Burgess was multi-lingual, and obsessed with words and word usage. He translated the subtitled film version of Cyrano De Bergerac so that it still rhymed and rhymed beautifully. He also invented the prehistoric language used in the film Quest For Fire.

He also wrote dozens of other novels, as well as books on linguistics and he composed symphonies and operas .

Read Earthly Powers if you want his best novel.

Good call, I haven't read this yet... but I'm sure that it will be amazing. Werner is indeed a true genius...
