I see that a new lit-movie is headed our way. This time it's going to be Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
I have always been repulsed by the whole "beat" scene, the hippie culture of the sixties, and the drug culture, for that matter, even though I came of age in the sixties and was exposed to much of it. So for me personally, this is probably a no-go or, at most, a NetFlix experience, but I thought some of you might be curious.
Too, I have never read On the Road - my question to you is, should I? Considering my distaste for the pretentiousness of that era, is there anything in there that might change my mind about Mr. Kerouac?
