Sulla strada (On the road nel titolo originale con cui è noto anche in Italia) è un romanzo dello scrittore Jack Kerouac (1922-1969), considerato il “manifesto” letterario della beat generation, ovvero il movimento culturale, nato nel corso degli anni Cinquanta, che contesta lo stile di vita borghese americano e i valori del capitalismo opponendovi la ricerca della libertà, la sperimentazione di droghe, la sessualità e l’introspezione religiosa di tipo orientale. On the road descrive i viaggi per gli Stati Uniti tra il 1947 e il 1950 di Jack Kerouac e dell’amico Neal Cassady. Kerouac appunta le proprie impressioni su una serie di blocchi di carte e fogli sparsi, da cui poi nell’aprile del 1951 estrae il romanzo, scritto su un unico rotolo di carta di 36 metri. Inizialmente rifiutato dagli editori, Sulla strada viene pubblicato solo nel 1957, dopo una serie di modifiche ed aggiustamenti da parte dell’autore. #ontheroad #jackkerouac #mondadori #feltrinelli #read #reading #readingbooks #book #booklover #bookstagram #bookworm #libros #summer #librerie #livro #summerbooks #letture #lettureestive #lettureserali #libri #library #librarylife

📚DISAPPOINTING📚 I loved Divergent when I read it years ago. But then I ended up not reading the rest of the series for a LONG time. When the adaptation of Allegiant was finally coming out, I decided I needed to read the books before I saw the movie! And wow, it took me FOREVER to read them. Each one took me nearly three weeks! I was just so disappointed by them that I never wanted to pick them up. I had to force myself to read them! Unfortunately, the movies were almost worse! 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ 📷 #allthebooksjuly18 Day 21: Took forever to read 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ Are you with the majority of people who hated ALLEGIANT?? Because I definitely am! 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ #bookstagram #instabooks #reading #books #yalit #ireadya #yabooks #youngadult #booknerd #igreads #bookaholic #bibliophile #bookish #letsbookit #yadystopian #photoadaychallenge #photochallenge #photoaday #bookstagramphotochallenge #divergent #insurgent #allegiant #veronicaroth

It took just one conversation to feel something for her. Maybe it was the way she looked at me or the way she acted around me that made me feel like I mattered to her. When I approached her, her demeanor changed instantly. And, I guess, mine did too... At least that's what my friends told me. I tried so hard to hold back expressing what I was feeling, but like candlelight through a sheet, my shadows gave away my position. I wasn't sure if she meant to, but I noticed her wait to talk to me. There were other people that she could've talked to instead, but she decided to patiently wait for me. The anticipation that built to in her absence caused me to freeze on her presence. I, an emotionless machine, found a glitch in her gaze. I tried to analyze it, but it only caused more errors until I shut down into safe mode. Reading out only prewritten scripts until she left, allowing my systems to return to full functionality. She was only a customer on the other side if the counter, a friend who is known for forever, a stranger I thought I knew for a moment, a flicker on my phone, but for just one second, she was much more than that. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse #love
