    #3244939 - 10/11/04 10:30 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Has anyone read this book? I checked it out of my school library today... Very cool so far.  :thumbup:

Dude - This book is awesome. I just love stories of the "golden days" of LSD, free love and good times. There's some great adventures in this book that make me want to buy a school bus. And a vial! Enjoy the read!

Right on man. I'm only 22 years old, but my curiousity of the 60's and the good ole days is something extreme. I believe this book was published in 1968.

Do you have any other suggested reads for when I'm done with this one?

Peace man :peace:

Read everything by Hunter Thompson. Parts of Hells Angels overlap
with sections from The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Also check out On the Road by Kerouac for more insight into Neal Cassidy. And of course there is Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest.

Thanks

I liked cuckoo's nest better because it seems more trippy than just Acid test. You can't go wrong either way both are great books.

Anybody ever read any of Kesey's other works?
