It was during this time that I saw Hunter in a weird evening in Somerville, MA. He was incoherent then and this book, which I read a little while later in Cape May, was somewhat as incoherent. Yet, I loved it.

The theme dealt with his struggles with weapons charges in Colorado. I enjoyed the book because I like Hunter. This was not Fear and Loathing, however. I don't think it was as bad as some have made it out to be. Hunter was non-linear and this is very much an example of that.
