This enormously eccentric book takes listeners on a crazy journey with renowned gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist's "coverage" of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, The Curse of Lono features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay for which Hunter S.Thompson became known and loved.

A typically HST winding story, absurdist behavior, sometimes macho or misogynist, yet terribly enjoyable. the lengths Thompson goes to tell an immediately gratifying and harsh story. too immersive to think about where any of it is going.
the reading is very good.
