Recommended for: election history buffs
Read in November, 2008

I got to page 150 or so & gave up, reading the last chapter & calling it a day. Rambling. About an election I was too young to participate in and about hoards of individuals I know nothing about. I found it really hard going. There were some interesting anecdotes and illuminating character observations, but I really hated the rest. For my first Thompson read, I should have read another of his works, say Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

Coalbanks Damn! If only HST was around today! FEAR & LOATHING circa 1972 would be a day at the beach compared to 2008.
