Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
    #649824 - 05/28/02 04:59 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone here read The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe? I thought it was a really eye-opening and enjoyable book... Any other thoughts?

I tried to read this book and had been looking forward to it for a long time
The manner in which Wolfe writes is the most irritating fashion ever. Normally i could read a book like that in a day or two, but i couldn't finish this, even with taking long breaks, his writing style annoyed me so much i wanted to throw the book out at times

peace

Its okay, I've read it a few times, Kesey and the Bear have both said that it isn't an accurate account of what went on though.

I'm reading it right now, its alright....I don't really mind the writing style, only because it reminds me of my own thought pattern when i'm tripp'n, the only thing is, is that I find it to be really humourous and I can't figure out if the book is really supposed to be funny or if, its just my sense of humor??
