4.0 out of 5 stars 3 of Thonpsons best books in one wieghty volume., 14 Nov. 2009
This review is from: The Gonzo Papers Anthology (Paperback)
If you already have The Great Shark Hunt, Generation of Swine, and Songs of the Doomed then there is nothing for you here, it's 1236 pages of reproduced gonzo that most Thompson fans already own, yes, its just the three books back to back in one gigantic volume.
If, however, you are just starting to enjoy HST's writing then this is a good place to start, it's cheap and for my money The Great Shark hunt is one of the best things Hunter ever wrote, three of his best books, in paperback, far cheaper than buying them individually. Not exactly a holiday book, this is a weighty tome and will break your back but not the bank, you'll never get this book on an airplane without paying for excess baggage, and the idea of an anthology for such an established writer is a strange one, the books gathered here are all still in print so this smacks slightly of exploitation.
So, enjoy it while you can, the good doctors books will be passed around for generations to come, unless they weigh as much as this one.
