Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Updated: 7 Sep 2020
This cult classic of gonzo journalism is the best chronicle of drug-soaked, addle-brained, rollicking good times ever committed to the printed page. It is also the tale of a long weekend road trip that has gone down in the annals of American pop culture as one of the strangest journeys ever undertaken.Now a major motion picture from Universal, directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.

This book changed my young life. Its mixture of passion, cynicism, hyperbole, and diatribe—and its take on the failures of the ’60s—mirrored my own worldview. Thompson’s language, his sentences, his lurid, violent, evocative prose inspired me—and clearly influenced my own work. [on B&N] The book that probably influenced me more than any other. A prose stylist and a personality who changed my life

So you were a fan of the book before the film. Oh yeah, I’m a huge Hunter S. Thompson fan, and I’m a big Charles Bukowski fan.

“This is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read, which is the main reason I recommend it to people.”
