this summer get yourself a copy of hunter s thompson's the rum diary. not only is it a great read (one of my favourites when it comes to thompson) but with the film coming out you can picture the rum sipping, constantly sweating journo protagonist paul kemp, as the mighty fine johnny depp.
there's just something about lying in the hot sun sipping on a mojito reading a story set in 1950s puerto rico. it's hot and sweaty and tastes of rum and your hot and sweaty and taste of rum. what more could you want!
