  2. So sorry to hear about the death of a family member. I have always wanted to read this book, not in graphic novel format though. Maybe someday.

  3. Is that a graphic novel of the book, or the movie? I remember watching the movie when I was in high school but I don't remember much of the movie other than it being really strange.

    1. Either or, but I would guess the book.
      You should watch the movie again as an adult.

  4. Sorry to hear the news. I was out of town last week, catching up today. This looks like a wild read with crazy cover art in cartoon form. Enjoy!

  7. I'm so sorry for your loss Freda. This book sounds crazy! I image a graphic novel version of Fear and Loathing is quite a read.

  10. Great opening sentence! I've never read this book, although it is a modern classic.

    Thanks for always including BBOF with your posts! I have FINALLY added a Friday 56 tie in notice to my BBOF explanation, with links to your blog. It's been on my To Do list for a long time. Sorry it took me so long!

  12. Hi Freda,
    Love the cover, very colorful. Have a great day!

  13. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I hope that you and your family are doing well.

    This book has been suggested to me several times, as has the movie, but I've never read or watched it. It seems like a story that could be made into a nice graphic novel.

  14. Sending my condolences...
    I just celebrated Thanksgiving as well with my Canadian friend on Sunday. Yummy times.
    Been meaning to either read/watch Fear and Loathing. Look forward to your thoughts on this graphic novel.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one.
