The Book Club Returns

So it's been a while. I don't really have the time to sit here and chat but I figure I'm overdue to shout something into this void.


There. Shouting complete.

Okay, for reals this time.

So years ago (over on my DeviantArt blog), I suggested all of you go and read Mark Twain's 'Mysterious Stranger' because it kicks ass. Well now I have another kick ass book for you to read.

Go and read "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S Thompson. Not only is it a book that is lots of fun to read, but it is a remarkable book. It's not very long and is written largely as one long action scene about two guys who do absolutely nothing. Their big adventure is running around Las Vegas for a few days fuelled by drug induced paranoia, trying (and largely failing) to complete a lot of senseless tasks that no sober person could comprehend. And yet, it is one of the most exciting books to read just because of how it is written.

So go read it. You'll enjoy it and you might learn something from it.

I'll be here when you get back.
