If you are looking for an edgy summer time read, then this is the book for you. As good as Garlands beach paints the picture, this is the real deal. Years before Thompson really got going, he wrote a classic. Without the extremities of F&L this book is booth voyeuristic and unpalatable in equal amounts, classic Thompson. And when you're done with this, move on to the next instalment of the good doctor.
