I still love Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas out of all of them. It just holds a special place in my heart.

It's good. You'll like it, I'd guess.

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72 is pretty good.

The Great Shark Hunt is okay...I think that's a collection of works.

Hell's Angels if you haven't.

Of course, Fear and Loathing.

Generation of Swine is kind of interesting, him railing against Reagan and repeating, "Many heads will roll...." from his columns.

I like how they sit around and drink straight rum and bitch about their paper.  It's awesome.  :cool:

He talks about that. Sticking to the hash and rum for 6 months before his first LSD trip.

That's in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.  I think he just sticks to rum in the Rum Diary.  Hence, the name.  :smirk:

"One monday I was awakened by what sounded like children being butchered outside the window. I looked through a crack in the shutter and saw about fifteen tiny Puerto Ricans, dancing on the sidewalk and tormenting a three-legged dog. I cursed them viciously..."

The Rum Diary was his first book, and his only novel.  I think both of those facts are reflected in the writing.

It's okay, I guess.

Oh!  It looks like the merry pipe-smoking gay gnome decided to chime in with his opinion.  :wink:  Let's dance a jig to celebrate.  :penis:

Did anyone see Johnny Depp on Jay Leno last night? He was wearing a Gonzo t-shirt and they talked about Hunter and the cannon.

Read the Great Shark Hunt and The Curse of Lono.
