The Acid House

Description from the inside sleeve This scintillating disturbing and altogether outrageous collection of stories introduces to these shores a young writer already being called the Scottish Celine of the 1990s Guardian and a mad postmodern Roald Dahl Weekend Scotsman Using a range of approaches from bitter realism to demented fantasy Irvine Welsh is able to evoke the essential humanity well hidden as it is of his generally. I really enjoyed these stories Like a lot of Welsh s work the language and the settings capture something really special which is 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 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 horns with it And before you know it you re fluent in GlaswegianMy only gripe here is that the territory is a bit narrow If there was just a bit of variety in perspectives I would ve given it five stars I appreciate that Welsh is at home when writing about junkies and dropouts but the occasional surprise would have done this collection some favoursThat negative I ve pointed is not that significant It was enjoyable and I need to reread his other work and tick off those books which I m yet to wade through

review The Acid House

Depraved lazy manipulative and vicious characters He specializes particularly in cosmic reversals God turns a hapless footballer into a fly; an acid head and a newborn infant exchange consciousnesses with sardonically unexpected results always displaying a corrosive wit and a telling accuracy of language and detail Irvine Welsh is one hilariously dangerous writer and he is bound to create a sensation Includes the followi. 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 can be boring pointless and at some points fucked up even for Irvine Welsh Overall I d say this book is definitely a must for people already hooked on Welsh s writings For others just poking around for an approachable read or looking to get into Irvine Welsh I wouldn t recommend this be your start Read this book definitely but once you re used to Irvine Welsh and know what to expect Otherwise this may just seem to be a big flubbery mess with it s obvious brilliance scattered about when really it s a great uirky collection of some very odd storiesHighlights The Granton Star Cause The Acid House Vat 96 The Last Resort on the Adriatic Snuff

    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

    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
