Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thomspon (July 18, 1937 – February 20, 2005) is one of my favorite authors. Thompson created Gonzo journalism which is a style of reporting where the journalist actually becomes the central character of the story. It is usually written in a first person narrative and it is a blend of fiction and factual events through the journalist’s POV.

Thompson was an interesting guy. Read the book and watch the movie, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and you will get a good picture of HST. There are also multiple documentaries on Thompson. Truly a great read!
