I picked up a book of Hunter S. Thompson's letters he wrote. It's the second book of his "gonzo" letters to friends, publishers, politicians and so on. I have heard people refer to him as a genius and I am not so sure I would refer to him like that. A good writer with great descriptive narration indeed but other then that it seems to be more of a drug fueled rant then anything. Fear and loathing in Las Vegas was a very good read as was many of the articles he has written but I don't think that makes him a genius. I was just wondering if anyone here has an opinion on Hunter, his personality his writing or his legacy.
