Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
This is one of the best fucking books I’ve ever read. 20 years ago I said the same thing about Trainspotting. I’ve come full circle following the Irvine train since then, and I’ll always be a Welshian. I may write a full review once I’ve regained the ability to form sentences. Or rather the sense that I’ve any right or need to form them after this man puts the final dot on the page. There is much to be said about this book, but I don’t know that I am the one to say any of it, or if I even want to try. I’m still coming down. I may never touch bottom. Read this book if it’s the last thing you do.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
So this is one of serval times I have tries to read these books, I love the train spotting movies and would love to be able to read these book. But despite being a Glasgow girl who is fairly well acquainted with the slang written in these novels, reading it for any more than a few lines make my poor wee heid hurt! I mean Ouch! serieously! that being said I love welshes charaters, and will just continue to worship the movies haha.
