This book was the most inspirational work I have ever read. No matter how silly it sounds, I want to go climb a mountain and become a Buddhist. I wish he was still alive, I'd have more to say to him than I do to most people

Had to offset the praise handed down by so many people for Karourac's writings. Very overrated as a writer. This book is filled with the resemblance of substance, but has nothing in it. It is a contradiction of itself.

Anyone who has any respect for nature, the Dharma, life, or philosophy will gain from this book. Kerouac always has a way of drawing a reader in and putting you in his place. It's a beautiful and eye-opening book.

Only Kerouac could capture any moment in his absolute awe. His never-stopping living loving yeah-yeah words invoke images and feelings like no other author. Read this book. Live this book.

there isn't much i can say about the book, like _on the road_ you almost have to read it yourself. but it is inspiring--it moves you, opens you. it leaves me speechless.

This book was interesting. From it I have learned how the long haired, lazy, hippie types think. A pretentious book by a pretentious author. Read it and weep.

A more laid back series of tales from the life of Jack Kerouac. Very relaxing, unlike "On the Road". Makes you want to go climb a mountain.

After reading Dharma Bums, don't be surprised if you find yourself climbing a mountain... and then run back down it as fast as you can!

dharma bums by far kerouac's best work. a wonderful display of his spontaneous prose style and immense compassion for others.
