Charismatic, controversial, and all out crazy, that is how I describe Hunter S. Thompson. From his books to his journalism, he was one of the greatest gone too early. I have read many of his books and articles. My favorites are, Rum Diary, Hell's Angels and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. When I learned of his suicide, Rolling Stone had dedicated almost an entire issue in his honor. There hasn't been anyone since him, in my opinion, that has the ability to write as real and raw as him.
