    Keeping it real, always

    A remarkable book, Welsh is as brilliant as ever. More structured than Trainspotting but just as beautifully real. An unsentimental look at the passage of time, snapshots os the last three decades.

    Ive read most of his other books and this one wasn't bad, it just wasnt really that great. He slightly recycled some things, making them not as shocking-such as the dog cruelty (read marboo stork nightmares!) and of course the sex & drugs. When i read the others i was pretty much immeddiatly absorbed, this one i kept putting down, it kept lagging. Yeah, everytime I read his books i end up saying that slang--Im like 'yea man that's tidy,-- i dig it' (im also reading Jim Carrol heh)Anyway, a good book just not AS good, but what else better have u got to do w/ ur time? If u even slightlt liked this book definetly check out his other stuff...

    Didnae ye want to read a brilliant book??

    While the most challenging book I may have ever read, it is certainly one of the most entertaining. A darkly brilliant, sometimes horrifying book about 4 Scottish friends that you will never forget. It takes a lot of concentration for readers to follow the very thick Scottish brogue. But a short ways into the book, after you realize the brilliance of the writing, you find yourself mimicking their speech in your everyday life. The first-time sex scene is one of the funniest I have ever read. I laughed so hard I almost choked. I was so into the book that I am sure I will find time to read all of Irvine Welsh's works. Not for the everyday reader, but someone who appreciates dark humor, fine writing and the way the other half lives. I think this book was a huge hit in Great Britain, I hope Americans will give it its due.

    Brilliant Welsh

    Welsh continues to project the dark underbelly of the human condition on to the lives of the Scottish underclass in brilliant fashion. Thoroughly entertaining, richly textured and consistently genuine, Glue continues a growing line of excellent fiction.
