I'm in the middle of this one and it being my first exposure to HST's literary work (saw a few of his stories that were made into movies) I'm thoroughly impressed. I was unaware Thompson had any political background, so a much welcomed surprise. The narrator, Phil Gigante does a great job and with his personal experience with HST he gives a more personal take on how the story is "meant" to be carried out. In relation to the movies Fear and Loathing and Rum Dairies, Gigante is spot on with his dialect and general demeanor. I can't wait to finish this one and move on to the next.
Learning more about HST's daily life and situation. The political ventures this man went on are comical and compelling at the same time. Not to take away from what he was doing at the time, because if he had succeeded in a few more elections it would have been monumental.
There is a scene where Hunter is checking into a hotel full of cops with a suitcase of drugs. The scene at the counter made me smile from the inside.
Most definitely laughed a lot in this one. The drug references are spot on and the scene at the drug conference is just what I needed at the time I was listening to it. Great work by Hunter. The funny thing is, this parts not a story. He was checking into the hotel with . . . well I'll let you check that one out.
