Book #48: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

by Hunter S. Thompson

In Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, “gonzo journalist” Hunter S. Thompson attempts to examine the American Dream as seen through the drug culture of the 1960s. In the semiautobiographical story, a journalist and his attorney sidekick travel to Las Vegas for some traditional news reporting, but get sidetracked by their own descent into drugs, and the parallel descent of a culture in crisis.

For the reading project, I downloaded the electronic version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. At my standard font size, the book is 165 pages in length.
