Never Forget You're in Bat Country

This is a great book for fans of Hunter S. Thompson and gonzo and bizarro fiction in general. I really thought all three authors did a great job of creating works in alignment with his themes and adding a bit of their own spin as well. Burt is excellent with his performance, as always, I have yet to find a book he isn't clearly getting a kick out of as much as the listener and authors.

Good stories!

I'm a huge fan of Kevin Candela and Kent Hill. I also loved Paul Burt's story. "Smoking pot in hell!" Paul Burt also did a good job of narrating!

Super Imaginative and Fun Listen

Hunter S. Thompson is one of those larger than life figures and who better than some authors of larger than life works to write a series of three novellas about Thompson in decidedly larger than life situations. It starts with John Bruni bringing Thompson and his Attorney on a journey mirroring Dante's in Hell and goes from there. The only commonalities are that there will be plenty of drugs, plenty of action, and a real agreement among the authors on how Hunter S. Thompson would act in these circumstances. Though they're three stories in three different settings you can believe the same character is in each which really cements it as a great collection of tales of a man whose certainly an inspiration to the authors collected in this work.

3 Exciting and Entertaining Journeys

I have never read any Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's work, but after listening to these three stories and comparing their unifying themes, I think I have a sense of his work. The stories involved road trips where we encounter extremely eccentric and memorable characters, do a lot of drinking and drugs, and are exposed to graphic violence. They made me want to read his work. The narration was excellent. I really enjoyed how the POV character retained the same voice for all three stories, while a wide range of colorful voices were used to depict all the other characters the POV character meets. Thumbs up and highly recommend this audiobook.

Keeps you laughing

This audio book contains three tales that unless you have a problem with graphic language will make you laugh your head off. The narrator does some really amazing voices.

Disappointed

I was looking forward to this book, but, unfortunately found it mediocre
Some of it was a chore and if i had been reading this in hard copy i would have probably given up before finishing the first story
This book was given to me for free at my request and i provided this voluntary review
