Reviewer: Amy Benfer, (Slate)

"Reading anything by Irvine Welsh is sort of like reading Chaucer if you are not fluent in Middle English....It's best to shrug one's shoulders and go for full immersion in Welsh's language, which, like good lager, is strong, heady and likely to produce symptoms of intoxication. A few details will probably slip past you like lost car keys, but Welsh's prose will get you drunk all the same....Welsh's novel describes a highly scripted, slangy, violent, sexy, drunken series of events that, over time, constitutes a fully realized vision of the world....You can't ask for much more than that."

Reviewer: Andrew Biswell, (Literary Review)

"Welsh's sense of pace and his ear for dialogue are both excellent. One of his main purposes in writing fiction seems to be to transcribe the obscene speech of working people....Readers in search of fucks and cunts won't be disappointed, but there is more to it than that. For example, Welsh is very good at dark threats of violence."
