See Barger's Hell's Angel for this little noir piece.

    This was one of those books that I saw at the FotL used book sale and thought “SCORE!”. Sonny Barger has been a Hells Angel since 1957. He’s gotta have some great stories to tell. If there was one thing I was not expecting when I bought this book it’s that the book would be boring. But it is. I thought so anyway. There might be some exciting stories further on in the book but I wouldnt’ know because I didn’t finish it. Boring is the about the worst sin a book can have for me.

I was looking forward to some ‘hell-raising motorcyle stories’. Oh well.

    There are some 'ok' stories in this book, but for the most part its a bunch of tall tales punctuated by hardcase, macho characters,with a touch of sensitive biker dude for good measure. The inclusion of more than one ghost story in here really ruined what might have been a 3 star rating. There is literally a story about one of the bikers giving a ghost a ride and keeping him in a room and showing it to his family. Yeah... true story.

    I loved this book. If I read it at night I had trouble calming down to sleep, its got so much biker adventure happening. Really gives the inside story on biker commeraderie. Fun accounts about the lengths people will go in their relationships with motorcycles. A very fun book.

    This is a bunch of motorcylce stories, compiled by Sonny Barger. There are some good ones there are some bad ones, but they all make you want to ride. I liked that they weren't all about bikers that ride with clubs or ride Harleys, it was a pretty divers bunch of stories.

    Most of the stories are so full of shite someone's eyes are very brown. Some are too stupid to be believed. Might make good bathroom reading material.

    This book was surprising, because it's just a great collection of dfferent stories from bikers. There's such a diverse collection of stories, it's not all fights and women. Very nice.

    I made it almost half way through. Not much about Sonny in this one. Other people's short stories and I got bored with them so I gave up. Sorry Sonny.
