you should read . . .
Hunter S. Thompson - Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail; Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; The Curse of Lono. Also, maybe - Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, but it's a long book. A very good book. Keep in mind, The Curse of Lono will not be as good if you don't read the Fear & Loathing books first (in my opinion).
