An irreverent mockery of the American dream in all of its filthy greedy excess. I loved this book. Its hard to believe that a guy so wacked out on drugs could be so observant and acute. This has to be Hunter S. Thompson's magnum opus.
Just an all around awesome person.
This was so worth the money I was walking around work laughing at the craziness of these guys. I liked the movie so much better, but what a great read. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get a little more than what the movie had to offer.
At the top of the list
Catch-22, the overall tone.
I have not, but am sure to look for some in the near future - wonderful narration!
It most certainly did.
That the story doesn't follow a normal narrative but I don't feel like it hurts it any. It's more akin to something like Napoleon Dynamite where it's a day in the life of type of story. I loved it and would absolutely recommend. The weakest part is probably the narrator but he's not that bad.
