The Rum Diary by Hunter S Thompson
The Rum Diary

ballard.katy, October 21, 2007

Thompson’s words lure the mind in and make it easy to find yourself in his place. He lives carefree and observes life with a stern shoulder in disbelief of the so called “doomed generation” he speaks so frequently of. He generates the mind with his talk of life as he travels a rather vast area of the world in pursuit of the “American Dream” he holds dear to him. Hunter was a very unique individual. Before his death at his most favorable retreat in Woody Creek, he had wanted his remains to be catapulted out of a huge Gonzo fist (a fist with two thumbs) cannon n which they were. He lived a very colorful and rebellious life and in many ways, changed the way I think of life.

Hunter S. Thompson, the original Gonzo Journalist.
