Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
In Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, Raoul Duke (Thompson) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (inspired by a friend of Thompson) are quickly diverted to search for the American dream. Their quest is fueled by nearly every drug imaginable and quickly becomes a surreal experience that blurs the line between reality and fantasy. But there is more to this hilarious tale than reckless behavior--for underneath the hallucinogenic facade is a stinging criticism of American greed and consumerism.

While the book is brilliant, Ron McLarty's performance for this audiobook leaves much to be desired. If you're in the mood for a Thompson audiobook, try 'Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone'.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but my husband said that the narrator was quite monotone compared to Johnny Depp in the movie. Overall I found it to be quite a good reading, but the narrator is not very expressive.
