SUMMARY Ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Hunter S. Thompson

Fear and Loathing at Rolling StoneFrom Hunter S Thompson's first Loathing at PDFEPUB #190 piece for Rolling Stone the story of his infamous run for sheriff of Aspen in to his last an examination of the KerryBush showdown in FEAR AND LOATHING AT ROLLING STONE presents than examples of his best. I have been eagerly looking forward to this book as have a lot of people ever since it first appeared on the horizon over three years ago Originally slated for release in November 2008 it suddenly vanished off the radar as uickly as it had appeared with no explanation whatsoever from the publisher Having finally received a copy of this book before Christmas all I can say is that it is a pity it didn’t remain in the wilderness for good In short this book is an utter disgraceI cannot fathom what Jann Wenner was thinking when he decided to publish this book You might of course be wondering why on earth I would have this opinion This is of course perfectly reasonable given Hunter’s long and illustrious history with Rolling Stone the publication in which his greatest work appeared Yet reason had little to do with this latest offeringIn what can only be described as a decision of breathtaking arrogance Jann Wenner with the help of Paul Scanlon decided to severely edit Hunter’s original prose I am not just talking about taking excerpts from the original articles – that might actually have been a sensible move considering the length of some of his work Instead however what is contained in the pages of this collection can only be described as a kind of horrific experiment gone wrong FrankenGonzo if you like starring Jann Wenner as the crazed creator holed away in a workshop of filthy creation The result of his efforts of course is a creature of monstrous uglinessIt is hard not to form this impression when you see the heavy handed dissection of Hunter’s work The original flow of his writing is all but destroyed with paragraph after paragraph hacked away in favour of this new re imagined beast Take Strange Rumblings in Aztlan for example the entire first page or so has vanished in favour of an opening line that comes from the middle of a paragraph on the second page of the original article Actually what Wenner does here is to combine two of Hunter’s sentences into a shorter opening statement So basically the first sentence you read never even really existed in that form Of course Wenner might point to a letter from Hunter dated February 10th 1971 in which Hunter uestions the editing of the piece and admits that the chronology is scrambled However there is nothing that justifies the crazed butchery that takes place with the remainder of the material in this bookApart from The Battle of Aspen and a section from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas what is presented as “The Essential Hunter S Thompson” is in fact uite the opposite There is absolutely no point to this collection at all Why would anyone want an edited version of Hunter’s original prose It is like taking Hamlet and deciding to edit out the solilouies or releasing a new version of Gonzo The Art by Ralph Steadman with a new colour scheme selected by Jann Wenner I also find it amusing that Wenner decided to include Mistah Leary He Dead Hunter’s obituary for Timothy Leary which he describes as “a proper RS send off” The original article was published in issue 740 August 8th 1996 If you have trouble finding it in that issue that is because it was buried away in the l
