Publisher's Summary

This enormously eccentric book takes listeners on a crazy journey with renowned gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalist's "coverage" of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, The Curse of Lono features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay for which Hunter S.Thompson became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunter's oeuvre, is a widely sought-after treasure.

"okay" HST

A typically HST winding story, absurdist behavior, sometimes macho or misogynist, yet terribly enjoyable. the lengths Thompson goes to tell an immediately gratifying and harsh story. too immersive to think about where any of it is going.
the reading is very good.

Hunter S Thompson is my hero!

Another gem from one of my top 3 favorite authors. Fluid, funny, and pure HST! For those unfamiliar with his non- political writings this us an excellent choice. It's got every bit of his 'journey is everything; destination not so much' madness I love about his writing. This one isn't as drug saturated as say Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas but they are still there. Lotsa booze too but HST wouldn't be HST without them. God, I miss him!
