    eBook Jack London õ The Road Kindle ↠ õ road book, The Road ePUBThe 'Road' in uestion is the railroad motor cars were almost unheard of when Jack London was travelling around America as a hobo This is a fascinating look at a very different country It's full of great characters and long forgotten slang and exciting tussles with policemen and railroad employeesThe interesting thing about the book for me is that it works so well even though the story doesn't have much of a trajectory It's really just a series of anecdotes about life as a hobo from surviving a stint in jail to sneaking onto trains and staying on despite the brakemen trying to throw him off The reason I kept reading was for the wonderful details the vivid descriptions the large characters the tall tales and the wonderful insight into a world that seems very distant now Highly recommended
