"A must read for anyone who has seen the movie!"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Hunter S Thompson is amazing. The way he describes scenarios almost makes you feel like your actually there and on the same drug! I watched the movie before reading the book and was pleased to see that it was very similar, thoroughly enjoyed both! Would definatley recommend this book to anyone with a quirky perspective on life and enjoys an original style of writing.

"A Great Read"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

An entertaining and at times insightful look into the post-hippie era, Hunter S. Thompson's tale about a journalist and his lawyer searching for the American Dream in Las Vegas is not one to be missed, particularly by those who saw and enjoyed the film adaptation.

Description

Stylish reissue of a classic first published in the 1970s: Hunter S Thompson's ether-fuelled, 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! And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas!' As knights of old buckled on armour of supernatural power, so Hunter S. Thompson enters Las Vegas armed with a veritable arsenal of 'heinous chemicals'. His perilous, drug-enhanced confrontations with casino operators, bartenders, police officers and assorted representatives of the Silent Majority have a hallucinatory humour and nightmare terror never before seen on the printed page.
