Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance : Review

About : The book describes a seventeen-day journey of father and son across the United States from Minneapolis, Minnesota to California. A rough outline of the route comprises Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and California. 

I just finished reading the book zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance and it left me with a weird feeling. I have to admit that I am not capable to review this book. It is a classic, it is a difficult book that analyzes many philosophical ideas. 
To begin with, the story which is actually true, is about a journey a father makes with his son. The book describes their relationship strongly although it leaves you with many questions, which answers only in the last pages. Moreover the description of the landscapes is magnificent, it makes you want to buy a motorcycle and travel across America.
Personally I read really fast books, but this one was different, you can not read 100 pages in one day, because you have to think also all those ideas it deals with. 
Finally, I recommend it to all of you, it's a classic book, it's a book that changes you, but I have to warn you that you have to finish it first to truly understand it.


  1. Sounds such a difficult book! I really doubt i will ever try it. I'm pretty sure i would have stop it at the first 20-30 pages :p
    At least i'm happy you enjoy it at end. You did, didn't you?

  2. @yiota: i did, i enjoyed it, but it's a book that you have to read twice. I was feeling the same with you, just leave it and never finish it but i pushed myself and as it turned out i liked it at the end...

  3. I have had this book on my wishlist for quite a while. Thanks for the review! Books that change something within you are totally up my alley!
