The Acid House I 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 any I m pretty sure the novella A Smart Cunt was in here Though I have zero recollection

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 I really enjoyed these stories Like a

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 ho The 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 nihilism and self absortion, violence and twisted black humour Reading these stories will also give you a vintage, 80s feeling It kinda resembles Trainspotti The 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

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 evenacrid retelling of The Metamorphosis, Eurotrash, which remains to be savored like a putrid aftertaste of something that goes down delecta A 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 so Let 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 books have been written since A Clockwork Orange The Acid House is a hit and miss short story collection Don t get me wrong probably half the stories are brilliant, as usual Sadly, the other half Let me say that This book made me laugh so much It s a bunch of short stories and there are two that really stuck out for me In one a guy drops acid and ends up switching bodies with a baby or thinking he did, I can t remember The baby with his adult brain gets off on breast feeding and watching his parents have sex The Adult with the baby brain ends up in the hospital drooling all over himself His girlfriends visits him and everyone thinks he is messed up from the acid The second

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 Dis This is the fucking tops, a collection of stories delving into the depravity and disillusionment of post Thatcher Scotland The misfortunes are of a people inherently unprofitable, without place in the neo liberal hell scape they are emerging into Their past times
