Some interesting points, but tangled writing style.
on March 7, 2013
The trouble with this book is, Leary is too experimental. He can't just stick to a straight narrative but has to mix it up with random quotes and bits of other stories. If you can mentally string together the actual story without getting distracted, he comes across as horrifyingly irresponsible, to the point where it's frankly hard to put yourself in his shoes. And I speak as someone who loves Hunter S. Thompson's work. Thompson was able to take a good story and make it great. Leary takes a great story and makes it rubbish. Ah well. At least books ABOUT Leary are highly entertaining. Can't blame the man for not being able to write a good story.
