Rachel McWhirter, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Rachel McWhirter)
"The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe, is a personal account by the author of his journey across America with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters on their bus. It might be easy to discount this story as just a tale of mistaken adventures from a time long since past. However, the life turned legend that Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters lived was set in very fertile soil. This group changed portions of the world forever. From their ideas came the rave scene, the flash mob scene, the multimedia party scene, psychedelic art, and more. While this book is a wild ride, it is also a great experience for anyone who has ever felt they were part of a subculture.
