Fear and Loathing vs On the road
Regularly compared due to sharing several key themes (searching for the American dream, freedom on the road, youthful excess, rebelling etc)
Some say Hunter S Thompsons "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" was a quantem leap forward in terms of its strong political references, more dinamic writing style and braver more explicit content, making Jack Kerouac's "On the road" dull and obsolite by comparison.
However some take the view that Kerouac's more traditional writing style, better characterisation and more clearly showcased themes makes "On the road" a classic novel in its own right while Thompson's work is confused, crude to the point of been pornographic and lacking any genuine writing craft.
Both excellent books but which do you think is critically the better and which is your personal favorite.
