This book left me very flat. The book is so pointless it really left me saying "wow, if that is how exciting a week-long binge of drugs and alcohol really is, then I'm gonna stop doing 'em now" ... er, not that I would ever touch either anyway.The first couple of chapters were promising, with some witty lines from Dr Gonzo's lawyer (who's name I cannot be bothered to remember), however, by the middle of the book these were still in use and no longer seemed witty.I read the book on a recommendation from a friend, who's book recommendations I now take with a pinch of salt.You should rent the movie and tell me whether it is as crap as the book.
