My guess would be he meant Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with that remark

Yes, that could also be true, since it's largely autobiographcal.

One book that I didn't expect: Frankenstein. Never read it, as there are too many films about the subject. I suppose that the original book has something more to say than what is already said in all those movies?

Not eligible, because it's non-fiction: "In Europe" by Geert Mak. Highly recommended. The author has visited a string of European cities in 1999, talking to various characters living there and connects them all using 20th century European history, switching between past and present.
