They are making a movie out of the book and I wanted to be ahead of the game.
While it was enjoyable, and often times reminded me of Fear and Loathing with everything going on in the book, it took me a long time to become interested in the story enough to continue. I originally started it a year ago and is one of the few books I’ve put down and never came back to. It is mainly a drunken rum induced adventure of a newspaper man, Paul Kemp, who can’t decide if he wants to stay or leave. By the time I got through the last page, I found it enjoyable.
