Jack Kerouac’s On the Road

“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”



On a similar theme to yesterday’s bookish post, two of my favourite books: Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, are about to be adapted into film. (I’ll probably post more on The Great Gatsby soon as it deserves more that just a passing mention being one of my favourite novels!) Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy films but it is sometimes a little bit heartbreaking to see one of your favourite reads recreated as a less than adequate film. I have my fingers crossed and I’m hoping these two will not disappoint! I think the casting for both sounds amazing for both, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I agree with the choices of actors! I can’t wait to see the trailers. What are your thoughts on film adaptations of book? Any favourites?
