Overall customer rating: 5.000

A Glasgow story

by Victoria53 on Aug 19, 2010

This Booker Prize-winning book is both bleak and funny. Unless you've already heard how working class Glaswegians talk, you may find the style a little daunting at first. Just keep reading, don't stop and go with the flow. Sammy's experience of losing his sight, learning to cope, and then dealing with the consequences, in terms of bureaucracy, the local police and his family is heart-wrenching but rings true. And the language is amazing!
