Has anyone read Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72?

Reading it at a military institution gets you looks like you're reading Dianetics while drawing a pentagram on your forehead in charcoal. Everyone's already on edge because of some recent drama about an openly Communist recent graduate and 2nd Lieutenant.

The dynamics of Washington in general as HST observes it are, while not surprising, are still disturbing in similarity to the present. I'm not even halfway yet but I'm hoping someone here might've read it or the other Fear and Loathings enough to throw in their thoughts.
