Obviously this book is not a cult classic like Fear and Loathing, but it does have a really good sense of pace and character even if the plot doesn't seem to go anywhere. Its hard to explain what you think at the end but I felt it was worth the read.
Jesse is a good character and this book does not disappoint. It is a bit of a toilet read but the best ones usually are. It is surprising that most people don't take the slightest interest in this stuff. Even if it is all fictitious, its still interesting.
