Silk Road: The Journey, Kenneth Canatsey

Contemporary Fiction, Literature & Fiction

It is 1966, and the narrator and his roommate are leaving their California college town in order to hitchhike to New York City and join their friends who are already there. So begins what will become a 20,000 mile journey of loss and redemption. 

Silk Road: The Journey is a tale of travel, adventure, and a young man’s coming of age, evolving under unexpected and, at times, the most unusual of circumstances. Here, the changing landscape becomes an active – although not always benign – participant in the story. Above all, the novel is a chronicle of impermanence, in which the narrative – on one level a series of adventures in which places and events change, and bonds between people are formed, developed and severed becomes, on a deeper level, an examination of transience, as the protagonist searches for meaning and permanence to the farthest ends of the earth, but is able to find it only when he returns home. 

A spirited, free-wheeling and ultimately sobering story of irreverent and reckless youth.

Silk Road: The Journey is an incredible book that is unlike anything I have read before. Silk Road: The Journey was a delight to read and an incredibly memorable one that I will struggle to forget for a long time thanks to the compelling story and extraordinary characters. The story is poignant as well as entertaining while at other times it is eye-opening and throughout it, you will undoubtedly feel a host of different emotions that will make you think about your own life and your own journey. This is thanks to the poignant journey of one man as well as the impeccably well-developed story courtesy of the excellent author Kenneth Canatsey who transfixes his readers from start to finish.
