Celebrating the life of a terrible father because he was famous. Hunter S. Thompson was a brilliant writer, no doubt about it. In this, his son writes about him and his life as an alcoholic, drug addict, self centered rebel. Juan does not have his father's talent for writing and frankly, I'm not sure why he wrote this book. Oh, wait...I guess he made money off of my purchase! Save yourself the time and just google Hunter S. Thompson and read his books. You will thank me.

Hearing Juan retell life with his father Hunter S. Thompson was a roller coaster ride of bone chilling and heart warming recollections.
I knew Hunter in the early to mid 90's as he was going through his polo phase. Juan's portrayal is spot on with my memories- with the added benefit of a lifelong relationship as sole child of this complex and endearing, larger than life, character.
One of the unique opportunities that The Listener gets to experience is the similarity of Juan's voice to his father's in tone and cadence.
If you ever wanted to know what life with The Real Hunter S. Thompson was like- listen to Stories I Tell Myself.
Condolences and congratulations to Juan on surviving and thriving this unique voyage.

If you’re expected something as funny and crazy as hunter s Thompson’s own pieces, this will leave you disappointed. If you’re hoping for a different viewpoint on the life of hunter then this might be for you
Found Juan to seem to sigh through it a little, like he was bored of reading it but a great insight into HST.
