    An iconic and controversial figure in American literature, Hunter S. Thompson displayed a brilliance that forever changed journalism. Thompson’s follow-up to The Proud Highway, this second volume of private, never-before-published letters spans the years 1968 through 1976. Addressed to such luminaries as Tom Wolfe, Kurt Vonnegut, and Jimmy Carter, this incisive collection showcases Thompson’s raw and starkly honest thoughts on a pivotal era in U.S. history.

    Story

    This book was suggested as reading for a book discussion group, and I was not sure I would have time to finish it so I purchased an Audible version. In my opinion, if you omit the profanity, vulgarity, and narcissism, you could eliminate over half the pages,and then perhaps understand what his purpose was in writing this book. Even as a drugged out icon he was considered brilliant by some, but I found his work tiring, boring and a total waste of time. In my many, many years of being an Audible member, I have never been sufficiently motivated to write a review (good or bad) nor have I ever considered asking for a refund until this book. The narrator read as if he was shouting at you, and as if he was angry, but I suppose if I knew I had to read this drivel for 16 hours I would be angry also.

    Three Junes is a vividly textured symphonic novel set on both sides of the Atlantic during three fateful summers in the lives of a Scottish family. Three Junes "almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains...extraordinary," says Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours.

    Overall

    I am amazed at the number of good reviews. I made it about half way through the first half, and never even bothered to download the last half. I would listen to all of it if I were stranded on an island with nothing else to do. The form won't let me give it no stars.
