Description

"...the only people for me are the mad ones, 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..." This is the voice that defined a generation—hip, poetic, restless with vitality. With this inspired reading by Frank Muller, you will experience every intoxicating nuance. As he travels across 1950s America, aspiring writer Sal Paradise chronicles his escapades with the charismatic Dean Moriarty. Sal admires Dean's passion for experiencing as much as possible of life and his wild flights of poetic fancy. On the Road memorializes the author's real-life adventures with Neal Cassady and epitomizes what comes to be known as "the Beat generation." It is the novel that made Kerouac one of the most controversial and best-known writers of his time. With Frank Muller's virtuoso performance, the text flows like the road itself, an exhilarating trip for narrator and listener alike.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: It's amazing that, with only a small bag of vocal tricks and no particular attention to subtext, Frank Muller can hold one's attention through a tome as large as this one. His voice is inherently compelling and always expressive. Here he essays the bestselling roman ê clef by the author who named and exemplified the Beat Generation. Penniless young Sal Paradise, Kerouac's alter ego, travels across America to discover himself with the help of a new buddy fresh out of reform school. Here one finds the themes that profoundly influenced the counterculture of the 60s. Muller emphasizes the romance and adventure of Paradise's escapades, though, if our hero grew spiritually and intellectually from his pilgrimages, we do not hear it. Y.R.

      • content: Reflecting the jazzy style of its day, ON THE ROAD gave an honest vision to a post-war generation of bored youths longing for sex, drugs and adventure on the open road. Kerouac counterpoints the rhythms and structures of Sal Paradise's long, poetic sentences with Dean Moriarty's bursts of raw energy to create the music of this apotheosis of Beat. Tom Parker (aka Grover Gardner) performs with intelligence in pacing and characterization and complete awareness of meanings. Parker's strong but relaxed voice carries us through the lonely, love-starved American landscape in which the mystical (and now mythological) Moriarty fights a losing battle against oblivion. Tom Parker's performance is tremendous. He makes it seem so easy! P.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
