100 Word Book Review: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S Thompson

I feel like my complete ignorance as to who Hunter S Thompson was and his legacy may have hampered my attempt to read this book. On the other hand, maybe not wearing those rose tinted glasses allowed me to see it for what it is: hints of a decent story all but completely hidden by the countless descriptions of drug excesses and bad behaviour. While it was intriguing at first, the narcotic abundant diary of excess became repetitive and dull. It centred around 2 characters whom I found deeply unlikable and whose story I couldn’t wait to end.
