Read a lot of books offer the last few years but this must be the worst by some margin. Essentially this is just rambling nonsense - avoid it !

Its probably just me but obscenities in book and film just stop me in my tracks. I read the first page of this novel on Look Inside of the Kindle daily deal version and on seeing the foul language read no more . It may well be realism but it's not for me.I am not entertained by this sort of stuff. If I want to be educated by it I go for a walk in the city centre - I dont want it in my home. If you feel the same way be warned. The first page leads one to believe that the story is well written with detailed 'showing' but the lack of inverted commas in speech I found confusing and had to retract often to get the meaning right. Who said what - too much hard work for me.

Found it very difficult to get in to. It's not quite what I had hoped for. Ending up not reading the whole book, but may give it another try sometime.

I freely admit to not having read this book, but I did take read as much as I could take of the "Look Inside" portion. I thought the synopsis sounded really interesting, but the lack of punctuation, in particular speech (or quotation) marks made it more hard work than it should have been. I really do deplore bad grammar and bad punctuation; using both correctly makes writing flow, whereas a lack of either can render a piece of writing almost incomprehensible. (By the way, before anybody criticises my grammar and punctuation, I am not hoping to sell this! LOL)

Only read about 25% but couldn't be bothered to read any more. Nothing much happened and the characters weren't exactly endearing.

I started reading this book interested in the Glasgow setting with memories of the busconductors / clippies of my youth. I am not averse to reading books with expletives but this one uses a particular one frequently which I and many of my female friends have a particular aversion to,
I would not recommend this book.
