    " What an amazing insight into a profound figure in the writing world. Absolutely loved this book and got learn of the real Hunter Thompson and not the Roal Duke so many people came to know. His story has inspired me to keep on with my own writing.....a definite must read for all Gonzo fans "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Zorich | 12/1/2013

    " So far so good, pretty insightful. On Page 213. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 11/27/2013

    " Sometimes I don't feel so crazy. Those times often coincide with learning about other people's craziness. Still, it sounds like it was never boring to be Hunter. Now I want to read some of the stuff he's actually written instead of just something written about him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roelf | 11/16/2013

    " Must read for all HST fans "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Greer | 10/20/2013

    " It is not so much the writing that earned 5 stars, but instead its the story that it tells. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Storm | 9/15/2013

    " Easily the best HST biography on the market. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frederic Murray | 6/19/2013

    " HST was staying at the Watergate the night of the break in...how's that for timing. McKeen did a solid job of telling the tale, warts and all, of the good doctor. My highest praise: I now want to read the letters edited by Brinkley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 5/2/2013

    " Great book - I've always been particularly interested in what Thompson must have been like behind his outrageous media persona. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 4/30/2013

    " I think Thompson is an interesting character but I still don't understand some people's obsession with him. This biography is quite thorough and makes a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 4/21/2013

    " Please buy this book so I may continue to feed my children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 1/23/2013

    " An overall very good bio. Maybe not as critical/objective as it could be, but it wasn't 100% flattering either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 1/1/2013

    " It is utterly astonishing to me that one of my literary heroes and one of the most colorful journalistic characters ever could have a biography so freaking boring. Steer clear. I couldn't even finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruce | 9/25/2012

    " A solid comprehensive look at the life of H.S.T. Worth the read if you are a fan of his or have an interest in him. It didn't promote or condone his "philosophy" but rather provided insight to his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 7/30/2012

    " Very interesting. A great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DJMikeG | 9/5/2011

    " This is the best book written about Hunter Thompson. For serious fans of the man and his work, this is a must-read. Much better than "Gonzo", which was tainted by a bit of Jann Wenner's personal beefs with Thompson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 8/22/2011

    " Good orderly life story, filling in may gaps for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 7/8/2011

    " Absolutely fantastic biography of one of the most prolific and misunderstood American writers of the 20th century. "
