great book. better than the old movie. I like the premise a lot...and was well executed under the guise of the asylum. also I LOVE that the narrator is uniquely reliable despite his problems. one of the essentials for high school/college...or anyone who hasn't read it I guess.
>>7682842 No, it's way different. You vax cause you know perfectly how to prevent/cure the disease in question or you can predict the results accurately. In psychiatry you deal with people's mind which is not as predictable and curable.
>>7682811 Literally one of the finest books I've ever read. I suppose the fact that I live around the area that the book takes place in might have something to do with it. I've never read another book where the imagery was conveyed so well and so vividly.
Sitting there reading about their meetings n' shit I actually could SEE it happening, like I was there with them.
I knew my hometown of Pendleton was a shithole, but I had no idea they had a work farm here.
>>7683086 Also, I've never seen the movie. After sitting through the first half hour of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in decided not to watch movies based on books I like anymore. Everyone I talk to seem to think that movie was fantastic but I thought Depp's performance was cringy and hamfisted as fuck.
Also made the mistake of watching "The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" before I finished the book. That movie so fucking godawful it ruined the book for me.
