Yes I enjoyed the story itself
Raoul Duke of course. I loved his take on things.
His character vioces were good with the exception of Duke. He made a fast manic talker sound like a slow hippie.
Yeah... BUY THE BOOK CAUSE THE NARRATOR WASNT GOOD ENOUGH!!!
Get Johnny Depp to narrate the book. Or at least Bill Murray. Anyone who has played Hunter S. Thompson before or at least knew him. Plus my Samsung phone wasnt a listed device.
Narrator does not capture or illustrated the unique voice & delivery timing that are signature Hunter S. Thompson.
The book is great, but would be 300% better if:
1. It was unabridged, and
2. It was narrated by Johnny Depp - no one else on Earth can portray Hunter S. Thompson as well as Johnny!
Maybe it will get re-recorded by Johnny Depp for the "Anniversay Edition"
This is a classic. You all know what it's about (drugs). And it's exactly what you expect.
The narration is just perfect. He nails the mood of the situation and the character of Thompson.
Haha. His attorney is a really funny guy.
The quintessential drug scene of the 70's
Hunter's reflection of the past five years, beginning with the San Francisco acid trip.
The narrator's voice was flat in the beginning, and then as the story progressed he stressed sentences with the wrong inflection.
No need to. The movie is a classic.
The book really needed to be read by Johnny Depp.
Just goes to show, you can have great ingredients, but with the wrong chef, you still don't get much of a meal. First audio book in a year that I just stopped listening to, and put on the shelf. I felt like there was a little too much Ron McLarty and he overpowered Hunter Thompson's writing. Accents we're odd and inconsistent. Just my personal taste, take it with a grain of salt.
It's easy to thin Thompson himself is reading this- there are passages when the narrator delivers with all the amphetamine prose.
An avid reader, who also loves to listen.
A great movie and a really good book too. A fun listen though I wouldn't recommend doing what these two characters did in the book.
I loved this book. I felt like I was high for six hours listening to this. Not just about drugs, this has alot of insightful things to say about American culture, but in a very slick way. One of my favorite books now. I saw the movie afterwards, but it's nowhere near as good.
Could be considered a literary animal house, and if that were all, I wouldn't recommend it. Can't approve of the glorification of substance abuse or even most of the scenes, but the performance by Ron McLarty is stellar! Definitely an "L" for adult language, but I'm keeping this one around to play whenever I need a quick chuckle! :)
