want to readDamon
This was not much fun. I guess that I was more interested in this kind of stuff when I actually bought this book forever ago, and I should have probably just read it then. Someone vomits in almost every story.Will
Gift from Minseo from Scotland. Some great short stories, though the Irvine Welsh one is a ripe turd.Rebecca
A rough and at times difficult collection. I didn't finish the story by Irvine Welsh; I just couldn't get into it. The other stories are interesting and well written. I liked "The Dilating Pupil" best. I find Scottish writers difficult to read, as I don't understand a lot of the slang, but I still slogged through it and enjoyed some of it. I've read other Irvine Welsh books that I've enjoyed more, like, "Ecstasy." This book is a good overview of region specific writing.Matthew Jaha
I had a great time reading this book on the bus on my way to work over the course of a week. My favorite short was Laura Hird's, and I thought Irvine Welsh's contribution the least attractive and ended up skimming through it.
