Snapshot Review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED!! Congratulations to Darbyscloset for winning this book.


Product Description (from Amazon.com)

GEN-X QUITS AND HITS THE ROAD. What made him do it? Was it the stifling, dead-end corporate job or the unfaithful fiancé? Whatever the reason, one fed-up, twenty-something decides to kiss the rat-race good-bye and take to the road to find himself and his dreams. As he rides on his motorcycle on a journey of self-discovery, the traveller becomes a nomadic vagabond seeking enlightenment and finding it in a series of remarkable encounters, a modern counterculture and a fellow wanderer. Through friendship, death and the freedoms found outside of middle-American values, the traveller learns life's most important lesson: It s not the destination that is important, but what happens along the way.

MY REVIEW

Christina - xristya@rock.com - On The Road by Jack Kerouac was a great travelling motorcycle book (plus hitching and busing and other travails), and I'd be curious to learn about a Gen-X's experience, even if it's in the guise of fiction!
