Doctor Sax and the Great World Snake

Jack Kerouac ß 7 Free read

Screenplay text74 illustrations by Richard Sa Seems like Jack Kerouac can go wrong after all This novel showed me personally how wonderful ideas do not automatically guarantee a wonderful story In a lot of ways Doctor Sax is as pure as writing can get It feels raw unpolished honest On an emotional level this makes it extremely personal; from a reader point's of view however boring Kerouac has always phrased his thoughts in a stream of consciousness style yet I personally prefer his stories after their fair share of editing It's a shame since the ideas here are lovely Kerouac has named this his favorite out of his own books and I can see why In it he reconstructs his childhood We see the world through the eyes of a child somebody on the verge to growing up For the moment however the world is still full of magic as well as beauty and unexplored secrets If only it wasn't such a drag to get through it Childhood certainly didn't feel like that

review Doctor Sax and the Great World Snake

Version of the screenplayUnabridged origional Thing is most of Kerouac's work is not linear and neat and tidy It's poorly punctuated stream of consciousness skipping from image to image to emotion to sensation So if you think you like Kerouac because you liked On the Road you may not like this book And if you only like Kerouac when he's writing traditionally crafted fiction then maybe you just don't like KerouacNot all of Kerouac's books deserve 4 or 5 stars but this one earned it The genius of it is that he recounts as if he were still a child the moments in his childhood when he realized his childhood was ending and that Dr Sax was coming to carry him away into the rest of his life Losing a prize marble surviving a devastating flood as others suffered watching a man die finally plucking up the courage to take a midnight trip through town to explore the ruined haunted house he'd always feared and wondered about these are the moments that Kerouac hangs his story on And he does so by recalling them using a child's unlimited sense of imaginationYes it's a difficult read but I think half the thing that makes it difficult for some people is that they go into it with the wrong expectations Don't expect On the Road or even Visions of Cody Expect to enter the mind of a child who sees vampires and ghosts and monsters as well as beauty and poetry and life
