Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Christopher Lane

Duration: 6 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

Made into a major motion picture starring Johnny Depp, The Rum Diary—a national bestseller and New York Times Notable Book—is Hunter S. Thompson’s brilliant love story of jealousy, treachery, and violent lust in the Caribbean.

Begun in 1959 by a twenty-two-year-old Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary is a brilliantly tangled love story of jealousy, treachery, and violent alcoholic lust in the Caribbean boomtown that was San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the late 1950s. The narrator, freelance journalist Paul Kemp, irresistibly drawn to a sexy, mysterious woman, is soon thrust into a world where corruption and get-rich-quick schemes rule, and anything (including murder) is permissible. Exuberant and mad, youthful and energetic, this dazzling comedic romp provides a fictional excursion as riveting and outrageous as Thompson’s Fear and Loathing books.

Genres:

  • Jackie Vance

    Actually it was pretty depressing, wish I hadn't bothered

  • Peggy Stortz

    The Rum Diary is so well written that the reader feels positively transported back in time to the 1950's Puerto Rico. Characters and dialogue are very realistic. I enjoyed this book very much.
