#10: The Dharma Bums
By Jack Kerouac
Narrated by Ethan Hawke / 7 hours 16 minutes
“ This book is one of those works where it's even better read aloud, the rhythm of the words lending itself well to the narrative. You feel the rhythm of the train cars that Smith hitches rides on, you feel the pulse of the parties where they drink and discuss philosophy until dawn, and you're struck especially by the poetry, which hits much harder than if you were to read it silently to yourself sitting quietly at home. A romping story about seeking, finding, and then setting out to seek again, the Dharma Bums is a unique look at America during the Beat Era, and a self-portrait of the author who lived it.”Spenser, Page 1 Books
