We’ve all seen the movie, but have you read the book?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas… It’s like a diary, a confession and a comedy in one book.
Try picturing this: you sit outside a coffee shop – totally sober – and you read a book that makes you laugh so hard, you are weeping and grunting until other customers start to complain. It’s that kind of book.

Since my humor is kind of “limited”, (which means, there are many things others might find funny but all I have left is a weary smile) it’s a very seldom thing for me to say something like this. Funny books a often worn out, too much over the top, no new jokes and – I mean – of course I am laughing about funny things in movies, but when was the last time you were laughing because of a book?! Yup… same here.
I guess I don’t have to tell you anything about the content of this book. Just to remind you: Two very druggend guys make a trip to Vegas – Thompson and “his lawyer”. We probably all remember the bat-scene….
