  • Cristina Ventura
    Written on April 16, 2018
    "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which inspired the cult classic movie, is a must-read for anyone brushing up on their American pop culture. This story will change how you look back on American drug culture in the late 1900s."

    "I've often heard about this book but had never read it or watched the movie, so I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I wasn't sure it would be something that I would like. Now I'm just mad that it took me so long to read it. "

    "It's the book that gave us the movie. Love this book. It makes you want to drop acid immediately. It's a classic you must own!"
  • Mary Foster

    "Thus book is very exciting, and definitely worth getting your hands on. You get sucked in from the first page. It was tragic to hear that the author had committed suicide a handful of years ago when I was looking for more of his books."

    "This book is funny at times, and terrifying at others. Not my sort of book, but if you're into that sort of thing it's a decent read. Definitely one of the more discussed books of Thompson's. "

    "Ever wanted to read about drug fueled orgies? Well Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is for you! It documents the travels of an undercover writer in a convertible dubbed 'Great Red Shark' where they go causing strife everywhere they went. And, of course, got completely hammered, coked up, and had sex with everything that moved. If that's not a good book premise then I don't know what is. For my part, I really enjoyed the way it was written, described, and visualized. Sometimes a bit too well. It's worth a try for sure."

    "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."

    "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the closest I've felt to being on drugs without actually taking any. Hunter S. Thompson is a master at painting visual images in the readers eye and the story will keep you guessing."
    Jesse James
    Written on March 14, 2017
    "This is not for me, so I'll declare that right off the bat. Now that being said I don't see anything wrong with it. It's well put together and flows naturally, so if you enjoy this type of stuff? Go for it. "

    "This is the book that inspired the movie Feat and Loathing in Las Vegas. I picked up the book because I was looking for something interesting to read over Spring Break. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the situations that the main characters found themselves in. I found it highly entertaining."

    "Emma Roberts did recommend this book on her instagram so it is definitely responsive. I am satisfied with this book recommendation based on my criteria."
  • David Hernandez
    Written on May 4, 2018
    "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is one of my all time favorite books. It's about as creative as they come, and the weird and twisting story kept me turning pages long after I should have been asleep. It's a work of fiction, though."

    "Totally amazing book. Definitely read it before seeing the movie! Check it out!"
  • Francisco del Ángel
    Written on April 20, 2018
    "Your conscious, in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, is in the form of the hitchhiker. Metaphorically speaking, without mescaline that is, a choice is made when the reader decides to become induced by Thompson’s story, and vicariously stay in the “Red Shark” on its way to Las Vegas…leaving behind all fears in the desert. "
  • Paul Perry
    Written on May 11, 2018
    "The founder of Gonzo Journalism really goes all out for this novel. It feels less like a coherent story and more like Thompson directly vomiting his conscience into your mouth. It's a trippy, weird experience that feels often surreal, and occasionally has you hope it's outright fiction. This is an interesting and hilarious book that is actually complemented by the Johnny Depp film."
  • Teresa Russell
    Written on May 2, 2018
    "This book is the antithesis of what a normal person could experience on a work related trip. I feel like it's a bit much for myself, but I can definitely see the appeal some people find in it. Crazy experiences throughout! "
    Christian Vargas
    Written on May 8, 2018
    "This book takes the taboo subject of drugs and puts on you on an introspective journey in the desert that is one of the most important stories of this past century. The sins of Sin City are not isolated to the desert. "

    "I was shopping for the best books recommended in Reddit and came across this product. It's absolutely wonderful and exactly what I was looking for!"
  • José Antonio Espinosa
    Written on May 9, 2018
    "The best book about substance abuse and addiction is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson. This cult classic of gonzo journalism is the best chronicle of drug-soaked, addle-brained, rollicking good times ever committed to the printed page. A long week-end road trip that will make readers want to experience it for themselves."
    Betty Butler
    Written on May 12, 2018
    "This is a horrifying and hilarious story. It makes you uncomfortable at times, but is always amusing and engaging. Definitely shines a new light on addictions and drug culture in the United States."
  • Jean Morgan

    "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is an OK novel. It does a good job at pairing real life events with fiction, but I was not the biggest fan of the topic. The book is a good one in the roman a clef novel genre, but I was turned off by the drugs. I would recommend this book to those who want to learn more about American pop culture."
  • Charvi Nair

    "THIS is a must read. It's such a cult classic and it's amazing. It'll keep you laughing and entertained. But don't worry it'll also make you think!"
  • Jacob Larson

    "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is written by Hunter S. Thompson. It was once mentioned in the Joe Rogan Experience podcast for being very good. It is about weekend road trip that takes a strange turn. "
  • Tyler Castillo
    Written on May 2, 2018
    "What is there to say about this novel that hasn't already been said? Although slightly older, Feat and Loathing is STILL a classic, and Hunter S. Thompson remains one of the most unique and individualistic characters/people of our time. It's no wonder that the man himself, and this book (and even film) have an almost cult-like following of fans and admirers."
  • Luis Alberto Madrigal
    Written on May 2, 2018
    "This a classic book that I think all should read. It is a great book that explores and attempts to understand the American Drug Culture in the late 20th Century."

    "A realistic look into America. This book may be too real for some, but it is a real eye opener. I also found the book very funny. "
