A rollercoaster ride to the heart of the American Dream.....,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream (Paperback)
One of those books that people simply must read - a modern classic. Hunter S. Thompson paints a funny, disgusting, enlightening and stark picture of the American Dream. He (alias Raoul Duke) and his attorney drive to Las Vegas to cover the Mint 400, but instead they end up consuming a suitcase-full of drugs that range from cocaine to mescalin to adrenochrome. Just a couple of guys getting wasted you might say, a social comment I say. So read it, and think about what the man's trying to tell you.....
