What the Critics Say

“Another of his trademark cocktail mixes of unbelievable tales and dark observations about the sausage grind that is the U.S. presidential sweepstakes.” (Los Angeles Daily News)

    "A Classic for One Chapter"

    In my opinion, the final chapter on the death of Richard Nixon is the finest piece of political writing in American history. At once hilarious, sarcastic and poignant, it is the prefect topping to this look at the election of William Jefferson Clinton in 1992. Scott Sowers does a fine job of capturing the anger and vision of Thompson's bizarre view of politics in the late 20th Century.

    "Couldn't listen to this performer"

    Scott Sowers has done a ton of audiobooks, some I've bought before. He injects a lot of personality into the work, and it can enhance the listening experience but in this case it's too much. I listened to 45 minutes of this book and after 10 minutes found I was paying more attention to the performance than the content.I know HST deserves an edgy delivery but this reading went from "edge" to strident to irritating. Listen to the sample, imagine hours of it and make up your own mind.
