    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream by Hunter S Thompson is profane, violent, disturbing, irreverent, and yet immaculately compelling The reader is as entranced as a driver witnessing a bizarre car wreck, horrified but unable to turn away It reminds me alternatively of Why Are We in Vietnam , A Confederacy of Dunces and in a strange way that is indescribable, A Clockwork Orange It is about the American dream in a similar way that Mailer s book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream by Hunter S Thompson is profane, violent, disturbing, irreverent, and yet immaculately compelling The reader is as e...

    You know, if this was the first of Mr Thompson s books I had read, I never would have picked up another one As far as I can tell, this is one of his weaker ones and is really the most well known only for the long, droning drug bullshit Reading drug writing is about as interesting is watching paint dry There are little kernals of hilarity because he s a fantastic writer who is able to describe pitch perfectly the bizarre ineptitude of the human experience which saves it from being snoringly You know, if this was the first of Mr Thompson s books I had read, I never would have picked up another one As far as I can tell, this is one of his weaker ones and is really the most well known only for the long, droning drug bullshit Reading drug writing is about as interesting is watching paint d...

    We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold is one of my favourite opening lines in literature Two paragraphs later are the equally brilliant lines I hit the brakes and aimed the Great Red Shark toward the shoulder of the highway No point mentioning those bats, I thought The poor bastard will see them soon enough That whole opening narration sets the tone of chaos and comedy told in a perfect deadpan that defines this book.Fear and Loathing We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold is one of my favourite opening lines in literature Two paragraphs later are the equally brilliant lines I hit the brakes and aimed the Great Red Shark toward the shoulder of the highway No point mentioning those bats, I thought The poor bastard will see them soon enough That whole opening na...
