How a Gunman Says Goodbye: The Glasgow Trilogy Book 2
How a Gunman Says Goodbye: The Glasgow Trilogy Book 2
by Malcolm Mackay
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars great scottish crime thriller, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not many gunmen make it for very long in Scotland, but this is fictional tale of how they do, especially the up and coming 'young team'. It is great being able to identify a truly distinctive Scottish narrative throughout the book. Can't wait to read the third of the trilogy.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok stuff but getting tired, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jim is an old school Scottish Socialist. Nothing wrong with that but he has adapted his long held views to the current referendum debate -and it doesn't work as the 'new' issues like EU membership and the currency debate require a greater and deeper political analysis than he has given us. Perhaps he had half finished the book then discovered that the referendum was almost upon us thus the last few sketchy paragraphs only outlining thoughts and two line solutions.
Jim talks a bit like George Galloway in his 'just say NAW' road show - 'a man who wants to build an independent Scottish Socialist Republic- but not right now! It is a marvellous idea its just that its time either hasn't yet come or it has come and gone' - There is no great demand for it in a Scotland which sees Independence from UK (England) as a means to building the kind of country we aspire to be using what is realistically 'winnable' , politically and economically. The 'revolution' will take time both to develop and mature. It will be worth it and I won't be surprised in time if Scotland ends up in the same solution area as Jim wishes, it will simply take a different path to getting there, and will be a wee bit different......................and I,m sure Jim knows this.

5.0 out of 5 stars great sound, well constructed, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
these cans are the bees knees. I was looking for a pair of light, smart looking, well built headphones for outdoor and indoor use. The ear muffs are exactly the right shape, comfortable and with very little 'sound leakage' The sound quality superb
Delighted so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you are a child of glasgow vou won't want to miss this, 12 July 2011
This review is from: Boy of the Garngad (Paperback)
if you were born in the east end of glasgow this is a compelling book. you will recognise the people, the streets, the events, the culture and customs of Garngad, a unique part of Glasgow.

I read it in conjunction with a photo archive available on line from the Glasgow Mitchell library. Although i didn't live there i had many friends who did and the book brought the times, bad and good, sad and funny from that part of my city


Fifty Tales for a Wet Weekend in Tighnabruaich
Fifty Tales for a Wet Weekend in Tighnabruaich
by Thomas F. Carbery
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.70

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read, not only for a wet weekend, 12 July 2011
This is a collection of short stories presumably based on the life of the author. It is unashamedly, as the title suggests about Scotland and its people (some in academia) The stories are all full of humour yet some quite poignant and moving but each well written by the author who is an accomplished story teller.
It is evident that he has had a rich and fulfilling life where few, even minor events, have gone unnoticed or unrecorded. In each of the stories you will recognise or identify some of the characters , for most have crossed our path in some form or other during our own lives.
In short, the stories are about real people in real life.
A great read and not necessarily for a wet weekend.
