This book takes you on a psychoactive fueled adventure to the heartland of American depravity.
Hunter S. Thompson's writing style is descriptive and disjointed (which maybe hard to understand at times) but in this style, Thompson provides a true insight into the extent of his adventures both physically and mentally, and provides insight into the wacky drug fueled mind.
This book is considered a classic by many, and is historically important for providing an interesting snapshot of the 1960s. Upon reading this book, however, I am perplexed why people consider this a modern classic. Perhaps it’s the style of gonzo journalism, however Thompson’s style of writing isn’t for me.
