Would you try another book from Hunter S. Thompson and/or Scott Sowers?
I like some of HST's work, but I found the narration grating and it put me off. The guy just sounds like an agitated jerk, which HST was, but I wouldn't listen to either one for any longer than I had to. Sounds a bit like Sam Kinneson hollering at you for 24 hours.
Would you recommend The Great Shark Hunt to your friends? Why or why not?
No, bad narration and if you're under 60 years old, it is hard to relate to the Nixon era articles.
How could the performance have been better?
Do it a little bit straighter with only some agitation when necessary, not constant.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
bought the ticket, took the ride

hunter and ralph steadman at the kentucky derby
What does Scott Sowers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
an excitable and angry attitude just like hunter in real life
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
the obituary he wrote for "tricky dick"
Any additional comments?
very entertaining, only thing that takes away from it was the many redundancies from his other works
