Pressestimmen

" Thompson has presented us with a close view of a world most of us would never encounter. His language is brilliant, his eye remarkable." --"The New York Times Book Review" " Superb and terrifying." --Studs Terkel, "Chicago Tribune"

Synopsis

'A phalanx of motorcycles cam roaring over the hill from the west ...the noise was like a landslide, or a wing of bombers passing over. Even knowing the Angels I couldn't quite handle what I was seeing.' Huge bikes, filthy denim and an aura of barely contained violence; the Hell's Angels could paralyse whole towns with fear, so terrible was their reputation. But how much of that reputation was myth and how much was brutal reality? Only one man could discover the truth about these latter-day barbarians; Hunter Stockton Thompson, Dr Gonzo himself, the man who saw the fear and loathing in the heart of the American dream. This counter-culture classic is the hair-raising result.

Format: Kindle Edition
Thompson got the idea to write about the Hell's Angels from Carey McWilliams of The Nation, the book became a turning point in his career and catapulted him to an icon of the counterculture. Researching the cycle boys had inherent dangers because Thompson wanted to submerge himself in the action, trying to understand the gang's perspective of live - if they had one. As they normally steered way clear of the media, he was lucky to meet police reporter Birney Jarvis of the San Francisco Chronicle who introduced Thompson to the biker gang. As Jarvis was also an ex-vice president and lifetime member of the Hell's Angels, this was a golden contact. The story began for Thompson in a San Francisco dive, but from there it became unpredictable and he personally spiraled into the growing violence - until he pushed his luck too far. The book is flush with exciting tales and full-size characters, some of them unbelievable in a novel of the 1960s (first published 1966). The book is action-packed right to the end when the Angels meet the resistence of hired private gunmen, country toughs, a giddy chamber of commerce capacity crowd of bystanders, vigilantes, and fired-up cops.

Thompson not only goes behind the scenes when the outlaw cycle boys roll in hordes to their annual 4th of July outing, but back through the drama when the danger was born and presents a picture of menace, terror, depraved hoodlums roaming the California highways on stripped down Harley-Davidsons. They were far from teenagers of the homey urban gang, but adults and could strike anywhere in the state, and most remarkably: they didn't fear the police.

The book Hell's Angels, by Hunter S. Thompson, is one of the best books I have read all year. The one thing that effected my liking to this book was not the description, it was not the plot, and it was not the excessive sex, drugs and alcohol. It was the fact that Hunter Thompson was living with the actual Hell's Angels for almost two years, for the sake of journalism. Hunter Thompson is by far no saint (as you might know if you read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), but some of the things that were done in the time period that Thompson was living with them were down right sinister. Behind all the rape and the pillaging and the absolute destruction of human beings were the Neanderthals, that would strike fear in the heart of any decent, hard working American. The book goes into great detail about the ways that the press can manipulate a story, and the way that can mislead the reader, and the results of this. The worst thing about this is that a lot of the Angels had things happen to them that they were completely innocent of, but just the mere fact that they were Hell's Angels made them the enemy. In no way am I condoning any of the actions that some of the Angels partook in, but there is a large difference between committing the crime, and being friends with the people that committed the crime. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever wondered what lies on the dark side of society, and to any one with a strong stomach. Thompson is an excellent writer and does go into (sometimes obscenely excessive) detail.
