5.0 out of 5 stars History repeats itself, 12 Jan. 2006
This review is from: The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time (Picador Books) (Paperback)
"When the going gets weird, the weird go pro."-Hunter S. Thompson
In a time of political peril and rancor in our countries capitol this book speaks volumes.
Hunter S. Thompson provides many snapshots into the American political system with this book. It is not a complete narrative. Rather this book is filled with high lights of Thompson's journalistic works. It is a collection of articles written for the "Rolling Stone," and various other publications.
Due undoubtedly to my youth, I have found the current state of America to be very disturbing. Reading this book has given me a chance to take a deep breath because the problems our country is facing are not new. They are just the same old problems we have always had.
If you are a person that likes to "Bush Bash," this book will give you plenty of new ammunition. Thompson's rants about Nixon are very similar to the things I have heard said about President Bush. Unfortunately, for all of us, the parallels are mostly negative. If President Clinton was a new John F. Kennedy, then "The Great Shark Hunt" has led me to believe President Bush is a new Richard M. Nixon.
