Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
A young journalist, fresh from the drug culture of the 60s, arrives in Las Vegas (1971) to cover the annual bikers race out in the desert with his good friend, Dr. Gonzo (a lawyer).
Both arrive in a fancy white sports car (dubbed the Great White Shark) zonked out on drugs and remain that way, receiving a new assignment to cover the annual Law Enforcement Meeting On Drugs and generally scaring the tourists, and annoying the natives.

The Rum Diary takes place in San Juan, Puerto Rico during the late 1950s. Kemp, the narrator gets involved with a woman who is with another man. There is a lot of jealousy and treachery in the novel. Many drinks are poured so there is a bit of violence too....
