Where does Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its a good book, well known and i can see why. I was recommend to read the book from one of my friends.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?

There was lots the whole book was an interesting listen. Very peculiar, different from my normal listen so it was a nice break.

Any additional comments?

I thought the narration was great, perfect fit for the story. I found the book slightly jumbled at times. Although come to think about it trying to keep along to this while driving might not be the best idea! in addition to that it might of been the authors intention due to the nature of the.....experience they're having.

What does Stephen Fry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I enjoyed listen to this book. I got lost at some points when Lawrence was discussing the more in depth sections about particle physics but I think that's more my fault.

Good, clear narration.

Intense, insightful and complex

Listened to an audible book by Sean Caroll before and the quality and content of the book was equally as good.
