Read in February, 2009

A masterpiece! One of the most underrated books in American literature. Thompsons search for the American dream is a journey that leads him through the absurd. This journey is taken at face value, as Thompson and his "lawyer" alter their own perceptions to see the true absurdity of reality, the American dream, and Las Vegas. A great book to read in connection with this is Camus The Stranger. There is a lot more philosophy in Thompson's book than I ever thought was possible. A great surprise, which is laugh-out-loud funny! Also, I recommend Thompson's biography, a documentary narrated by Johnny Depp, called simply, Gonzo.
