“Buy the ticket, take the ride,” was a favorite slogan of Hunter S. Thompson, and it pretty much defined both his work and his life. Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone showcases the roller-coaster of a career at the magazine that was his literary home.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you like Hunter Thompson, then you will like this book. It's made up of his letters and stories, which give a very personal perspective into a lot of his most famous works.

What did you like best about this story?

There's so much crazy random stuff going on with HST, this story gives me bits of those experiences.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably one of my favorites was the "Fear and Loathing in Elko" part, lol....
I really enjoyed the whole thing!

If you could give Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone a new subtitle, what would it be?

The Life and Times of a Rolling Stone: Hunter S Thompson

Any additional comments?

Once again, if you're a fan of HST, you'll most likely like this book!!

From 1990 to 1995, Dr. Rick Strassman conducted U.S. government–approved and funded clinical research at the University of New Mexico in which he injected 60 volunteers with DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known. His detailed account of those sessions is an extraordinarily riveting inquiry into the nature of the human mind and the therapeutic potential of psychedelics. DMT, a plant-derived chemical found in the psychedelic Amazon brew ayahuasca, is also manufactured by the human brain.
