After both reading and watching Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S Thompson I have come to realize that the story follows the mythic journey The mythic journey is the basis for nearly every story ever told The mythic or heroes journey usually begins in the heros ordinary world Next comes the call to adventure The third step is when the hero refuses the call to adventure Before leaving to go on a journey the hero meets with a mentor Now the hero must cross the first threshold this is when the hero must face the consequences of his actions and accept the challenge ahead After crossing the first threshold the hero usually encounters many tests allies and enemies Finally the hero comes to the edge of the unknown in a way he is approaching the inmost cave The eighth step is when the ordeal occurs The ordeal usually involves the main character or the hero being put into a live or die situation or when they have to face their darkest fears After overcoming a severe situation or surviving death the hero will then be rewarded for their valiant effort and courage Next comes the heros journey home Nearly at the end of the mythic journey the hero is faced with death again and overcomes death once again The conclusion to the mythic journey occurs when the hero returns back to the ordinary world having learned valuable lessons or received knowledge or even treasures from the special world The story of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S Thompson follows the mythic journey model almost step for step Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is basically a story of an insane weekend of lavish drug use countless counts of fraud and many other experiences shared by Hunter S Thompson and his Attorney Dr Gonzo Dr Gonzo was a large mean looking Samoan that enjoyed ingesting large amounts of illicit drugs
