    "Love the book, not the performance."
    Where does Fear and Loathing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Thompson. He's my political guru and the flow of his words will always be lovely.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Sowers?

    Hunter S. Thompson himself. Sowers tries to imitate the cadence of Hunter's voice, and fails miserably.

    "Save your money"

    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.
