rocks.

the movie is a very good interpretation to the book.
it stays true to the book really well.
i think the only part in the book thats not in the movie is a part at a taco stand at the end.

read it.

then watch the movie.

its a really short book.

The book is great. Anyone who likes Fear and Loathing I highly recommend Cosmic Banditos by A.C. Weisbecker. Trust me you will love it. :thumbup:

I love gonzo journalism, and yes the book is 10x better then the movie, if youve seen the movie first itll help you visualize things better I guess. Chech out the rest of his books.
