I bought this book due to it's rave reviews and I have to say I was hugely dissapointed and have returned the book unused! Whilst the contents may have had some vaild points, the decor in the book was not to my taste at all and actually seemed cluttered, over fussy and obviously only for people who have thousands and thousands to splash out on their pad. Maybe for some peoples tastes but certainly not for me!

I love this book, it is so heartfelt and in typical Willy Vlautin style. I hope Mr Vlautin will be bringing a new book out soon, I'm going to have to start re-reading the others again!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind., 17 Jun 2012
Cormac McCarthy, Willy Vlautin, Raymond Carver, Benjamin Myers. This book gives us a writer that sits with the best in this type of genre. I could not put this down, so desperate to find out what happens to the loveable and naive John-John. It portrays the traveller life from different views, the good and the bad. It also really describes the fear and aggression from 'those estates' that we all have, in every city. The prose was beautiful, the storyline gripping and I'm not even going to go into the plot because you just need to go and read it yourself. I was hooked by the first page. This book screams 'British Film'.
