Have fun, Jan
Fairly close - "psychedelic" - and though I've no affinity with them myself (nor am I dyslexic) I agree that Hunter S. Thompson is for me an "easy" read, as his style seems to be something that really clicks with me. FWIW I am, occasionally (when some here might say I'm perhaps a bit more excessive in written presentation than is indicated in this particular post), asked if I have partaken of something psychoactive, so maybe you've hit the nail on the head there.
But, yes, I feel I get him too, straight to the centrebrain like an icepick of enlightenment.
I've not read Ulysses
by James Joyce, but I will, as I've read excerpts and I got the very same sense that I get from Hunter S. Thompson, but better. Finnegan's Wake
may be more difficult.
