    Got to love sex

    Best said in the opening page, “when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro,” in Better than Sex: Confessions of a Political Junkie by Hunter S. Thompson delves into the most perverse scene of all politics.
    The book is like a collection of random thoughts, journals, and scrap book materials. The subject revolves around politics but in Gonzo journalism style Hunter does not limit his continuous stream of consciousness.
    Thompson shares his unsavory view of the comeback kid, Bill Clinton but does include correspondence from the Prez. He developed some interesting relationships including George Stephanopoulos and the raging cajun’ James Carville.
    He ends in chapter 666, an appropriate tribute to his muse and nemesis Richard Nixon.
    Better than Sex: Confessions of a Political Junkie by Hunter S. Thompson is another stab of understanding politics through Dr.Gonzo himself.

    Some glipses of old HST, but not quite the same

    At certain points in the book I felt as if I was reading some of his earlier writing from the 60s and 70s. His witty and twisted remarks made me laugh out loud on many occasions, not to mention the light he shed on certain obvious yet unnoticeable issues until just the right comments articulated them. Sadly, this was not common throughout majority of the book. Many times the topics and letters that were covered really shed no insight into anything and didn't lead anywhere. And through most of the text, that niche that made him so entertaining and interesting just wasn't there. I would recommend this book to only his bigger fans, but if you were looking for some of his truly best stuff the earliest works are probably probably what you are looking for.
