We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like “I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive….” And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming “Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?”
Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S. Thompson
Watched The Rum Diary. Hunter S. Thompson is a wild and crazy writer. Johnny Depp is a brilliant actor, who can play almost everything. The Rum Diary isn’t as good as Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, but it’s good.
