Genius... criminal.. mastermind... insane are some of the words that can describe Hunter S Thompson. Hunter S Thompson is well-known for his style of writting called Gonzo and for his use of firearms and narcotics.To me Thompson represented the right and wrongs of this country. Throughout his life, he dedicated his life to his work. I believe his greatest and my favorite was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Fear and Loathing was joyously funny and insanely true. Thats why I enjoy his work because he can take a scene, no matter how minor it is and turn it into something huge and hysterical. His wisdom can be looked upon in every situation too. His work has taught me how to write my own style. I now quote a saying from hunter s thompson: Buy the ticket, take the ride.
