Part Two
I really enjoy the book im reading. It has to do with "gonzo" which i really enjoy reading about. its a lifestyle, i dont knwo much a bout it but reading about it has made me think alot about the lifestyle i lead. I really like Fear and loathing in las vegas its one of my favorite movies and i love the pictures in that book, so reading about the people that made it all is fun for me. I never want to stop reading this. I especially like the language. it is english but the words he uses are...actually the best way to describe them are loaded words the make me think and help me picture what he is trying to say. the adventures these two have together are amazing. to constantly be traveling and drinking and doing drugs and writting/ drawing for all these different things. Its insane. Parts of the book talk about how Ralph is more innocent then Hunter in terms of personallity. I personally think hunter is crazy from what i have read but thats what i like about this book. its about one crazy person and his lifetime friedn who is in fact even crazier. I love this book alot.
