One of the most essential works on the 1960s counterculture, Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Test is the seminal work on the hippie culture, a report on what it was like to follow along with Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters as they launched out on the "Transcontinental Bus Tour" from the West Coast to New York, all the while introducing acid (then legal) to hundreds of like-minded folks, staging impromptu jam sessions, dodging the Feds, and meeting some of the most revolutionary figures of the day.… (mere)

    orlando85: This book goes inside the LSD drug world, by someone who actually experienced it. It goes well with Wolfe, who talks about that world as a journalist.

Finally finished the bastard---it was a real slog. I'm sure the writing is some people's cup of tea, but not mine.

The most interesting part of it, and the only part that has stayed with me strongly, was the description of how it all went sour---the point where the civil rights movement stopped being cool and was dropped in favor of drugs. Definitely a warning. ( )

Wolfe has strong opinions about various social phenomena, interesting to read whether you agree with him or not. He seemed to think, for example, that clothes a person wore were more important than their ideas or their actions. That's all I can recall about this book so long after reading it. ( )

Somehow, Tom Wolfe takes a fascinating topic such as the psychedelic experience, and a counter culture movement, and makes it an utter chore to read. The topic is just so fascinating. I loved reading about Ken Kesey, Owsley Stanley, the acid tests, the Hell's Angels, the Merry Pranksters. Basically all the topics in this books were fascinating, but Tom Wolfe was just not a very good writer in my opinion. I was constantly aware of the writing, and not in a good way. It took me so long to read this, I finished partly out of spite, and partly because I was legitimately interested in the content, writing be damned. ( )

That's good thinking there, Cool Breeze. Cool Breeze is a kid with three or four days' beard sitting next to me on the stamped metal bottom of the open back part of a pickup truck. Bouncing along. Dipping and rising and rolling on these rotten springs like a boat.
