5.

Book 5 is the Rum Diary (written in the 1960s, first published in 1998) by Hunter S. Thompson.

The Caribbean, a struggling newspaper and rum. Action, violence and sex. A brilliant tale about journalists taking it easy on the job and drinking too much because there's nothing else to do in Puerto Rico in the 1950s.

I loved it. It was a quick and exciting read which was exactly what I needed on a cold winter day. The only thing that was missing was a bottle of rum to accompany me.

I will definitely be reading more Hunter in the future.
