    I left Scotland four days ago, and the referendum for independence will be held in less than a week. So I figured this would be as good a time to read this as it will ever be. If there is something I've learned in my total of a year and four months spent in Scotland is that there aren't many things as Scottish as discussing why a can of Irn-Bru doesn't fall to the back of the car when dropped in the front.If you want to read the true Scotland, read this rather than Highlanders' erotica. Trust me [...]

    This book is beautifully written, although the usage of grammar is unconventional, it serves to further the tone. The book describes 4 young lads growing up in Falkirk and although the general themes behind the book are not particularly original, the writing style is highly imaginative and extremely poetic. There can be no doubt that this book is going to go down as a classic bit of modern Scottish writing.


  • Steven Pilling

    This is fantastic , i started it unaware that it was the prequal to Pack Men.Bissett has an ear for dialogue and an understanding of the mind of young men. The novel is his debut novel and so later novels are better as literature but it works at a high octane pace, feels real and honest.Read all his books start here and enjoy a writer who understands characters, dialogue and plot.


  • Julie

    Not quite as good as Death of a Ladies Man but still an enjoyable read (probably 3.5 stars!) Based on the author's actual experience as a teenager in Falkirk he uses his own nickname 'Alvin' for the central character. The anniversary edition has an additional piece written by Alan Bissett ten years on which is interesting.

    Tremendous,I could not put it down. I didnt realise a the rubbish I spoke as a teenager was being spoke by others as well . I really loved this book. Wish I had read it before Pack men though. Got the real urge to track down a copy of "Weaveworld" now and read it again

    this is one of my most favourite, favourite books, there's a sheer wantonness about it. it makes me laugh with joy; squirm with embarrassment and sad with jealousy, because i'll never be a boyracer.


  • Mark

    The best novel I've ever read about what it was like to be a boy from a small Scottish town in his late teens in the late 1990s.


  • Nick Nillo

    This will go down as one of my all time favorite books. I picked it up by mistake and surprisingly, I was not disappointed. Great writing style and phonetics too.


  • Paul Freeman

    Heddy-haw!


  • Jamie Bell

    very very enjoyable book , I was never part of that culture but it reminds me of home
