A real shocker of a book.Found in Kiddy library - I struggled with morvern called but really enjoyed the sopranos - so I thought that I would give this one a shot.The story - the man who walks is a drifter/loner/poet/frank from shamelss character who has stolen £27000 from a pub and is walking across scotland. His nephew is sent to find him and reclaim the money.Most of the story is told from the nephews experience, although he does find the inside of a print cartrdige and can decipher some of [...]

It sucked. I had no idea what the protagonist was going on about half the time.

As far as disturbing goes, thank you Warner, for almost daring meAs fascination works, you kept me glued to the page and in an enduring state of "something", something I'm still not sure about.Let's be frank; understanding this book might put you in with the loonies, but I'd much rather be down there then missing out on this one.Qua understanding, I'm in purgatoryWW is a bizarrely readable book for its fascination. It requires a certain stamina, but hey, a book can be put away.The search, or tra [...]

Questo libro, come accade spesso nei libri di Warner, ha della magia.Quel tipo di magia che ti tiene incollato alla lettura divertendoti e commuovendoti.Bello. ProseguoMa.Ma purtroppo tanta di quella carne al fuoco, si riduce, nella seconda parte, in tanto fumo, dall'ottimo odore ma dalla scarsa consistenza.Ho addirittura saltato qualche passoPeccato. A mio parere avrebbe dovuto stringere e costruire un finale più degno della prima parte del libro.Comunque, Warner è un Autore che merita e che [...]

I was given this book to proof read as someone had complained about it in the library. All I can say is it's the most revolting, disturbing, senseless and ill written piece of filth I have ever read. The only inoffensive part of the book is its cover which should be clearly censored, many people choose their books by the covers. Even the blurb gives no warnings to the contents. The one star is for the cover.

Dark, grotty, perverted, brutal and blackly humorous. The slowest chase novel ever written, in a good way. There's a plot but it's slow to unravel. It's Warner's musical prose that really drives the novel, that and his brilliant depiction of madness, memory, and the desolate beauty of the west coast of Scotland.

"As per usual" with Alan Warner, this book is incredible, literally; I was amazed many times that someone can be that good with language. This was the last of his books I hadn't yet read, I hope he's coming with something new soon because he's definitely my all-time favourite writer now.

Cathy has quoted me again, saying: "My mother didn't need to live to see a world so hostile to smoking." She also wrote: "8-trax: on the losing side of history."
