Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas

I read this book over last summer and I really liked it. It was written by Hunter S. Thompson. The story is basically his account of going to Las Vegas to find the American Dream. There are two main characters, Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, the book is based in 1971. It has now been made into a movie. There are a lot of drug references in this book and also a lot of action. The ending is very ironic and funny, but I won't give it away. My favorite part was when Duke is in the desert shooting a 357 at random.
