This cult classic of gonzo journalism is the best chronicle of drug-soaked, addle-brained, rollicking good times ever committed to the printed page. It is also the tale of a long weekend road trip that has gone down in the annals of American pop culture as one of the strangest journeys ever undertaken.
Now a major motion picture from Universal, directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.

The American Dream
I thought that this was a beautiful and bizarre book. The theme of Gonzo Journalism really got my attention by putting Roaul as the center of his story on the "American Dream". I myself have become interested in drugs, particularily classic psychadellic drugs from the 60's, but the most you can get where Iive is grass and cheap knockoffs that have all sorts of horrible things in them. Nothing pure. This book really opened my mind to reading and I recommend this book be read by anyone who likes journalism or Hunter. I sure loved it.
This was the final book in my high school junior year english lit. course. It was thought provoking, honest, and put me off drugs for life!
What a ride!!!
U feel just as twisted as them on this "trip"!!
