Friend told me to buy this book on Facebook, wasn't sure what to expect as this is the first book by Shane, but found it very accessible, author clearly understands pacing and doesn't waste time.
The book was a pleasure to read, I really enjoyed myself and highly reccommend this to everyone!
Main character is clearly suffering, his attempts at rectifying his internal conflicts are constantly being stymied by his old friends and family dramas, the non-linear chronology allows for odd juxtapositions and keeps the tension buiding. The humour and darkness blend deliciously, you can't stop reading or gagging for more!. I was going to attempt a comparison to previous works that approach the genre, but find myself unable as this is quite unique. Other treatments of contemporary social mores have been apparently deliberately offensive or impractically written, not digestible to those outside the authors circle, this is well-written and should be understood by all.
Don't want to incude spoilers, read it for yourself!
