Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson

Book Description

'A phalanx of motorcycles cam roaring over the hill from the west ...the noise was like a landslide, or a wing of bombers passing over. Even knowing the Angels I couldn't quite handle what I was seeing.' Huge bikes, filthy denim and an aura of barely contained violence; the Hell's Angels could paralyse whole towns with fear, so terrible was their reputation. But how much of that reputation was myth and how much was brutal reality? Only one man could discover the truth about these latter-day barbarians; Hunter Stockton Thompson, Dr Gonzo himself, the man who saw the fear and loathing in the heart of the American dream. This counter-culture classic is the hair-raising result.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » 'My own acid-eating experience is limited in terms of total consumption'... This is not the drug-addled Hunter S Thompson of later years, but the product of diligent research on the early days of the Hell's Angel phenomenon of 1960s America. Thompson associated himself with the Angels for a year; drinking with them, riding with them, and eventually pushing his luck too far and being 'stomped' by them. He came up with an entertaining and rounded picture of the 'outlaws', broadly sympathetic, but neither an apology for their excesses, nor a condemnation of their sometimes terrible crimes. This highly enjoyable book is distinctively Thompson; free-wheeling journalism shot through with a snarling distaste for authority. (Kirkus UK)
