I've literally never written a product review on here before but I wanted to add a couple of thoughts I didn't see in any reviews for this product. You can notice this earlier as well, as the best passage in the novel, the "Wave Speech," is noticeably trimmed down for the sake of conciseness.

Little focuses on the section of the monologue specifically about the protest movement, as well of course the end where Thompson makes the "wave" metaphor. However he notably leaves out the early part of the speech where Thompson notes he's particularly nostalgic for the ability to go anywhere in the Bay Area and find people to do drugs with - the protest movement is part of that feeling as well but it's secondary to the sense of community he felt from those drug experiences.

That omission is really important because the central theme of the novel is that whereas in the 60s Thompson and many counterculture people formed a community around drugs and personal freedom, Thompson and Oscar Zeta Acosta the real life "Dr.

Gonzo" do drugs alone to separate themselves from the society they find around them, totally alienating and hostile to the idea of personal freedom.

Aside from the lessening of the literary strength the omissions create, the full-blown craziness of the novel really does need to be experienced for the reader to have the full experience - "download the Ticket, Take the Ride," as it were. That said, the art style is perfect for the novel and usually does an amazing job "grounding" the story a little more than the classic Steadman art does while simultaneously not holding back on the bizarre hallucinatory aspects of the story.

Like for example the end of the classic "reptile scene" Little briefly shows what the scene looks like to the outside observer without the filter of Thompson's acid haze, and I think that lessens the impact just a tiny bit.

Similarly near the end when Thompson is alone in the Flamingo and is surveying the wreckage in the room, the novel and the comic's text describes, e.

I get that Little is going for a more realistic tone but again I think only by going all-in on the narrative insanity can you really capture the pure essence on the novel.

These are all relatively tiny nitpicks, and my only real criticism also applies to the novel itself - it ends extremely abruptly.

There's not a lot of wrap-up at the end, and it feels more like the end of a magazine piece than the end of a novel, which perhaps makes more sense since it really is a magazine article turned into a novel. I do think Little does a better job putting one last exclamation point on the story than Thompson actually did.

I do think this is almost certainly going to be the best adaptation of this novel, or really any Hunter S. Thompson work, we'll get until there's a completely unabridged animated film of this novel. But I would strongly suggest reading the novel in its complete weirdness first.

If you liked the book you're going to dig this. The art is great, the writing follows the book perfectly, and the overall quality is excellent - the paper, binding and hard cover are of great quality.

I gave this to an old friend for his birthday. He's a huge fan of the original book and was absolutely thrilled to get this.

I want one for myself! One person found this helpful. Anyone who hasn't read or seen Hunter S.

Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" is doing themselves a serious discourtesy. This is an amazing adaptation of Thompson's work with beautifully drawn art by Troy Little. I'd never heard of Mr. Little before but I'll definitely keep my eye out for his books now. Wow Troy Little, You really did it here buddy! I was very concerned what this would be like, especially without Steadman.

Concerns assuaged quickly. Little did great at getting at what Hunter was aiming for himself.
