Descriptions du produit

Amazon.com

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the ne plus ultra of Hunter S. Thompson and the whole gonzo clan he spawned. Written in the lurid afterglow of the 1960s, Fear and Loathing is a loosely connected series of mad dashes across the desert, trashed hotel rooms, and goofs on the brutish, naïve, or merely unhip, perpetrated by Thompson and his mammoth Samoan attorney. The pair start out high on a medicine cabinet's worth of elixirs, powders, and pills, and stay that way for 200 pages. They careen through an unsettling landscape of paranoia and alienation, but that doesn't mean the book isn't a riot. Here's a small taste: "By this time, the drink was beginning to cut the acid and my hallucinations were down to a tolerable level. The room service waiter had a vaguely reptilian cast to his features, but I was no longer seeing huge pterodactyls lumbering around the corridors in pools of fresh blood."

Though somewhat dated (it appeared serially in Rolling Stone throughout November 1971), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a book of real vitality and Rabelaisian wit. A document of the counterculture after it was well past ripe and deep into rot, the book is a wild ride, a paranoid ramble that is thoroughly exhilarating and worth the trip. No pun intended.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the best chronicle of drug-soaked, addle-brained, rollicking good times ever committed to the printed page.  It is also the tale of a long weekend road trip that has gone down in the annals of American pop culture as one of the strangest journeys ever undertaken.

Now this cult classic of gonzo journalism is a major motion picture from Universal, directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 C'est inévaluable 14 février 2014

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre, de part son histoire, son auteur, ses "personnages" et son myth, est tout simplement indescriptible. Seul un Javanais provenant du fin fond des montagne du Colorado semblerait être en mesure de mettre en parole les écris malsains de ce livre.

Format:Broché
Alors y'a Raoul Duke et le Dr Gonzo, son avocat. Les deux y vont à Las Vegas parce que Raoul Duke (aka Hunter) doit couvrir pour son journal une course de motos et de buggys dans le désert, et en fait il ne le fera qu'a l'arrache, trop occupé à aussi s'arracher la gueule avec des drogues diverses. Là en fait je vient quasiment de vous résumer le bouquin quoi, c'est juste deux types un peu nazes qui passent le plus clair de leur temps à sniffer, fumer, gober et picoler ce qu'ils peuvent, puis après ils vont en ville foutre la m***, généralement jusqu'à ce qu'un des deux se fasse tèj' du casino ou se tape une crise d'angoisse et de parano. Puis Raoul et Gonzo y retournent dans leur piaule et foutent la m*** encore plus, y'a des descriptions de chambres ravagées parmi les plus réussies que j'ai pu lire, et je m'y connais en livres sur les chambres ravagées.

Ravagés aussi, Raoul et Gonzo y doivent ensuite aller à un congrès sur les drogues avec plein de flics qui n'y connaissent quasi couille en drogues en fait quoi. Mais moi ce qui me plait en fait surtout c'est que le style est excellent, Hunter T. est vraiment un putain d'auteur qui arrive à rendre hilarant et palpitant les aventures de deux camés à travers le Las Vegas des années 70. Et on sent aussi la critique de Hunter T. sur ce qu'est devenu la culture américaine après les folies des 60's, c'est à dire chiante et trop plan plan. Et vu que c'est quasiment son sujet d'études, Hunter T. il arrive parfaitement à décrire les effets des drogues avec grande précision, et aussi la parano et le malaise qui s'en suit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And you thought YOUR trip to Vegas was rough and wild! 16 novembre 2004
Par Schtinky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Written in 1971, `Fear and Loathing' still has a powerful impact on the mind even today. If you are easily offended by gratuitous drug usage and the craziness resulting from it, then put the book down and back away slowly. For those who may have perhaps saw the movie with Johnny Depp and did not know what to think of it, I highly recommend reading the book and then watching the movie again, its subtleties come out from the background provided in the book, and you will truly appreciate the performances afterwards.

`Fear' is absolutely hilarious, following the ramblings of a journalist and his attorney into Las Vegas in the early years. Through clouds of mescaline, acid, ether, amyl, tequila, rum, and pot, we see Las Vegas through the demented eyes of a person totally over the edge and bordering on drug induced psychosis.

The bar scene in Circus-Circus is worth the price of the book alone, and all of the vapid trippings of our dynamic duo are practically frightening in their intensity. Thompson has captured the mind of the delusional manic in `Fear', and while it is a journey not recommended for real life, in its book form it is highly entertaining and brutally funny.

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas may be dated in its use of drugs and money, and the picture painted of a Las Vegas strip long gone to the commercialism of today's Vegas, but the amusing underlying story of human nature of the edge of reason is timeless. Definitely a worthwhile muse to entertain yourself with. Enjoy!

"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream" by Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter Thompson practiced total immersion journalism. This form of reporting is called gonzo journalism.

Hunter Thompson drove to Las Vegas to report on a motorcycle race and ended up writing a story about himself writing a story about a motorcycle race. If he would have written a conventional report on motorcycle racing it would have been interesting to motorcycle enthusiasts for a few days. Since he wrote a gonzo story he had a very wide canvas and he used it well to create a classic.

The reader might be turned off by the obstreperous behavior, extreme self indulgence and offensive inconsiderate language. If you can look past this offensive conduct and you will see that Hunter Thompson gave us an insight into the American character of the 1970's.

See also: Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga (Modern Library)

I completely enjoyed this book and recommend it to others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More truer now than it was originally! 4 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I personally live just outside of Las Vegas, and just about everything the good doctor wrote about is still true (especially Circus Circus). I can only imagine what he'd think of the quasi-Disneyland attractions that are there now.
The drug content was to be expected at that era. The world was still in a white picket fence mode and "creative chemistry" was seen as a tool to escape from it (or at least, take a different view).
The stream-of-consciousness writing style is a wonder to behold. You can practically feel your mind bob-sledding through the ether-induced haze, coming to a landing on both feet.
As for weither or not it was real, get over it. Just wallow in the genius of the work; how it dissects the "American Dream" and how we were so rudely woken from it.
And if you've seen the film, READ THE FREAKIN' BOOK AS WELL! You will discover a favorite quote or two that you'll find yourself using over and over again. I laughed so hard reading it the first time, my face hurt!
It's a classic document of the tail end of the "flower power" generation, and the beginning of the narcisism of the 1970's. Classic American literature with sheer outright BALLS that's so dearly lacking in today's pop culture.
I am certain that when Dr. Thompson reaches his final reward, he will have a never-ending orgy held in his honor, just for writing this book.
