I don't know...
am 9. Dezember 1999
I've read Fear and Loating in Las Vegas mayby three times and it is an amazing book. On the campaigntrail '72 HST tries to write a book that has the same driven crazy tempo and contains the same unbelieveable events. But he doesn't suceed. First, it is too long and he takes the smallest event and tries to turn it in to something insane but it feels constructed and thin. But if you read the book as an example of altarnative political journalism it has some good patrs. HST is one of the most exprimantal and avant-garde journalists i've ever read but he seems to have lost it in this book.
