Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream‘We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold I remember saying something like “I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive ”’Hunter S Thompson is roaring down the desert highway to Las Vegas with his attorney the Samoan t Yes I see all the raving reviews and the four and five star ratings but I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so bored and annoyed by a book Barring a massive conspiracy maybe I just didn’t get this book? This is what I got from the book Please help me if missed something We drove than 100 miles an hour while drunk and high WAHAHAHA We ran up a huge bill and fled the hotel without paying it WAHAHAHA We picked up a teenage girl and gave her drugs and then left her alone all scared and paranoid WAHAHAHA We nearly strangled the poor cleaning lady WAHAHAHA Do the good people who’ve never done and will never do and in reality will be uite appalled by the things described in this book really find these tales so interesting and charming? Or did this book offer subliminal messages about human nature or sociopolitical conditions of its time that I missed? What does this have to do with the heart of the American dream? Describing the book as some kind of a backlash against the Vietnam War and the fraudulent Nixon administration must be another joke that I don’t get This book somehow reminded me of Sexual Life of Catherine M People waving their filthy laundry – the stench going up to high heavens – in our face just out of sheer narcissism Look at me Aren’t I great?This book must have been really cool and hip when it was published in 1971 If anyone writes a book like this these days the only thing that I have to say is grow the fuck up
