After enjoying the Rum Diary so much I figured lets go crazy and read the more well known Hunter classic – Fear and Loathing. Again this has been made into a film which I have seen a bunch of times, again starring Jonny Depp. This film is pretty cool, but is is kinda hard to follow without paying a lot of attention. This is a story that is fast paced and intense. Hunter’s writing makes it like that and sometimes it helps to re read a paragraph or two. The book is much better than the film. Details and descriptions are more vivid in words than on screen in the Hollywood adaptation. It is a pretty short book (read in a couple of days) so well worth a read.
It was nice to be reading on the Kindle again too – it really does improve the experience.
