    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBHoly shit how could I have forgotten to add this to my list already this collection of breakneck vileness this wretchedness you wrench your head away from in shame that it happens to be so gripping and so funny In the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind they have invented a method for erasing specified memories from your mind I hope they invent just such a thing in real life so I can get them to erase all memory of my five star books so that I can read them all for the first time again Irvine Welsh became something of a parody of himself later on wee Scots druggy mouthy baldie that he is but let that not take anything away from his magnificent trilogy of Trainspotting Acid House and Maribou Stork Nightmares Hey Irvine if I see you floating down the gutter I'll bring you a bottle of wine

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBI'm pretty sure the novella A Smart Cunt was in here Though I have zero recollection of it now at the time I read that I thought it was brilliant and because I was bored on vacation in London with nothing better to do I wrote what I believe was the only fan letter to an author I've ever sent telling him this And he wrote me back In my letter I'd asked him if he actually listened to techno music since all his characters did and it was inconceivable to me at the time I was 18 that anyone especially a writer who'd written something I liked would do this later on in that trip I realized that nearly everyone on that side o

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBI really enjoyed these stories Like a lot of Welsh's work the language and the settings capture something really special which is why I've decided to bump it up from 3 stars to 4 stars as 3 would be unjustifiable I felt waves of nostalgia when reading certain reference points which I've only come to appreciate when penning this review it's got a very late '80s feel And the Scots dialect in written form is what makes it for me; I could read it all day Some people may see this as a bit of a pain because it takes some getting used to for example got is spelled goat so it can throw you a little bit But it's just like visiting Glasgow; at first you can't understand a fucking word being said all around you and then you force yourself to lock horns with it And before you know it you're fluent in GlaswegianMy only gripe here is that the territory is a bit narrow If there was just a bit of variety in perspectives I would've given it five stars I app

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBLet me say that Irvine Welsh is my all time favorite author Books such as Trainspotting and Ecstasy are pinnacles of modern fiction alright not so modern any I guess His stories are always insane his characters flawed but wonderful and the usage of Scottish vernacular is the coolest way

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBThe Acid House is a collection of short stories with each story featuring a new set of characters and scenarios I am a fan of Irvine Welsh's works so I really enjoyed this one Welsh's characters are edgy; society's dregs hard luck losers pinned to seediness by their own low expectations The short stories are full of the characthers' nihilis

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBA number of dank and torrid tales of wrongdoing Irvine Welsh says if you don't get to the bottom of things are you really alive? I mean society being what it is isn't the sensible man's response to go insane? Well I don't know Welsh your philosophy is debatable but your prose is stunning My favorites here are a The Granton Star Cause an even acrid retelling of The Metamorphosis Eurotrash which remains to be savored like a putrid aftertaste of something that goes down delectable but is poisonous at the core And a Smart something The latter one is a retelling I think of a minor character's viewpoint from Trainspotting but it completely stands on its own and is at base a devastating chronicle of ineptitude and depravity and loneliness that makes you feel for the character not just go along for the dark and vicarious thrills I'm hooked or maybe that is what Welsh intended As others have said on here the stories get a little repetitive because all the characters are fairly of a ki

    Kindle Irvine Welsh · The Acid House PDF Ú The Acid Epub / · acid epub, house mobile, The Acid book, The Acid House PDF/EPUBI was disappointed when I cracked this open to find that it was a collection of short stories I did not realise this at the time I put this on my wishlist I'm not a massive fan of short stories They tend to be dull and have this unfinishedness about them I read them all anyways and while some were better than others The Granton Star Cause most of them were not that interesting Also really disliked 'Disnae Matter' because this included one of my biggest pet hates when people say Disneyland when they mean Disney World This winds me up massi
