's review

it was amazing

If you don't want to read a book filled with words that are written so that when you read them you are pronouncing words in a Scottish accent then this and many of his books are not the books for you. If you don't mind that then go for it, it only takes about a chapter to become proficient in reading his work.

I personally loved the story. It's sort of the prequel to Trainspotting. This book introduces you to many of those characters as young boys but the book is not about them but other young boys growing up in Scotland with their own set of issues and insecurities.

Welsh is a colorful writer giving his characters very full lives making you love some characters and loathing others.
