The Road is a true American Classic. Jack London's prose adds a richness and character to the story that is worth savoring. Kudos to the performance which gives an authentic voice.

Desperate times call for desperate measures
If you could sum up The Road in three words, what would they be?
Life is difficult
Who was your favorite character and why?
The author was my favorite character-although, I was definitely conflicted in my feelings for him. The historical context is SUPER interesting and his stories are FASCINATING. But he is also SUCH a liar! However, I also know that times were very tough back then, and I'm sure that it wasn't easy to survive without some compromises-so I don't feel we should judge him too harshly. It just wasn't easy for me to hear him telling one lie after another to get by!
Which character – as performed by T. Anthony Quinn – was your favorite?
The author (see above)
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
I enjoyed the part where he was talking to the sailor, who started asking him detailed questions about his (fictitious) adventures on the sea. Each time you thought his lies were about to be exposed, he found a way to turn things around and regain control of the narrative. I felt anxious the entire time!
In general, the words and imagery in this book were SO vivid that I felt as if I were in the 19th century, riding the rails with him!
Any additional comments?
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review
