YMMV / On the Road

  • Crazy Awesome: Sal seems to think Dean is this.
  • Ho Yay: Sal and Dean. Particularly earlier in the novel where Sal is practically enamored with Dean (and his ways) and describes his handsomeness (the fact they were introduced while Dean was naked probably contributes.)
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: With so many road films out there today, the premise of this novel now sounds somewhat cliché. Also, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas borrows many elements from On The Road.
  • Values Dissonance: In spades.
