Since the recent death of Marlon Brando, his movie The Wild One has gained a new audience; it is in fact based on an incident Hunter chronicles in this book, the Rape of Hollister. Oddly, nothing remotely similar to the movie happened there, and some other legendary "motorcycle riots" such as the one at Laconia, New Hampshire, weren't initially riots at all, and certainly didn't involve the Angels, though the media portrayed these events as the brink of Armageddon and gave middle America yet another "dangerous group running wild in their midst," something else to freak over in addition to Communists hiding under every rock.

Great book, great CD - not sure how Depp hasn't made this one of his Thompson moviesPublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
I like Hunter S. Thompson as a writer.... I like his way of writing... But this book was just a bunch of bull ****.. I stopped reading halfway through the book.Published 20 days ago by Cindy
I couldn't make it through this entire book. It is sooooo boring. The author seems to talk in circles, if you read the first 40 pages then you get the idea of the entire book.Published 1 month ago by Wade
