Ralph Steadman (Illustrator). The Curse of Lono has long been considered a bastard stepchild in Thompson's oeuvre. For some reason, it was only given a small print run in 1983 after which its rarity ensured its cult status and high prices for used copies. This is the Hunter Thompson book you've never heard of, but really want to read. It's mostly about how crappy Hawaii is. It has the best ending of any of his stuff I've read, hands down.

The Curse of Lono is classic Hunter S. Thompson and very entertaining. It's an easy read, fairly short and very funny.

He is currently working with Hugh Hefner on Hugh Hefner's Playboy, on William Claxton's forthcoming Jazz opus Jazzlife, and a book of photographs created by Hunter S. A California native, Steve is based at the TASCHEN America offices in Los Angeles. The Curse of Lono is classic Hunter S. It's also classic "gonzo" journalism.

The Curse of Lono is a book by Hunter S. Thompson describing his experiences in Hawaii in 1980. Originally published in 1983, the book was only in print for a short while. Only 1000 copies were produced, each one being signed by the author and artist Ralph Steadman. Thompson · Steve Crist · Ralph Steadman

Didn't really know much about Hunter while he was living ... but lately I've been doing some research on him, and have read some of his writings. The guy was very entertaining, and he has a very creative way of putting words together .. decided to order a couple of his works on CD. Very happy I did.

The Curse of Lono is classic Hunter S. Thompson and very entertaining. It's an easy read, fairly short and very funny. It's also classic "gonzo" journalism. As in, you know HST is in Hawaii covering the marathon and he does some crazy things, but you also understand that HST throws a few twists and turns in to make things more exciting (which may or may not have actually occurred). The artistic graphics are a little fun, but I wouldn't say they added significantly to the reading experience. HST does a good enough job with his writing so I don't really need the graphics, but they were cool. I loved the real photograph at the end that actually shows HST with his tribal mace/ club and marlin. Also, in addition to the graphics, HST adds in a few other things to add to the experience beyond his writing: letters to friends and excerpts from colonial letters about Hawaii. Though the colonial letters didn't seem to add all that much, if you're a fan of Hawaiian culture and history, it would add immensely to your experience. I skipped a few but some were fun. The whole book is a fun smorgasbord of classic HST and gonzo journalism - I recommend it!

Lono is a lost Gonzo gem. It is uneven in parts but the high notes, Hunter covering a marathon and fishing in Hawaii while seeking the old God Lono, are among his best works.

Ralph Steadman's art is fantastic and surreal so the hard bound copy is recommended. Thompson and STeadman worked best together and, along with the Flying Dog beer labels, was one of their last outings. And one can see why as Steadman's sojourn goes south.

It's my most-cherished book. I won't comment on the content, just know that I will never depart with this treasure. Hunter is my all-time favorite author, so any review I give it will be biased.

The shipper, though...fantastic. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.

This is Hunter Thompson, alright, but it lacks the punch of the good Doctor's other, more well-known books. 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' is about the last refuge of the American Dream and those who were crippled in pursuit thereof. 'Hells Angels' is about a group of outcasts who redefined the American Dream for themselves when they realized that, for one reason or another, it was out of their reach. 'Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72' is about the American Dream in action (and the twisted failure the author saw in the result). Dr. Thompson's best work was done in the service of grandiose, ridiculous themes, which allowed him to be true to his own grandiose, ridiculous spirit. 'The Curse of Lono' is a skillfully researched and written Gonzo journalistic account of the author's miserable experience in Hawaii, but I think only the most dedicated of fans would find this essential reading. I'm glad I have it. I'm glad I read it. But, unless you want to read how you can spend the hellish storm season in Hawaii if you have nearly unlimited credit and almost no reservations about what chemicals go into your body, you'll be alright without it.

Thompson at his finest crazy......a surreal and unbelievable trip only surpassed by Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas......

The problem with a writer like Hunter is all of his works are compared to "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Whether that is fair or unfair no one can decide. This book has all the workings of Fear, but doesn't carry the punch that work did. He gets stoned, drunk, and into trouble the way in did in Fear, while trying to cover the Marathon in Honolulu. The book was hard to get and out of print for the longest time, but any fan of Thompson will like the read. The Ralph Steadman illustrations are a compliment to the book, but the essential Hunter that "The Great Shark Hunt," or "Fear and Loathing On The Campaign Trail," made famous is missing. Some of it becomes downright boring at times. The book is hard to get and expensive, maybe not worth the price. Overall, if you are not a serious fan, you could avoid the price and find other works of his to read.
It's typical HST. And because of that, I really liked it. The artwork is really great took. High quality printing for this edition too.
