    PDF/EPUB altobmen.pro ¸ The Stornoway Way PDF/EPUB ã The Stornoway PDF/EPUB stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFMy bookcrossing reviewI really enjoyed this book It was a very Scottish story dealing with alcoholism and subconscious self destruction although this book really only looked at the way his soul was destroyed by alcohol abuse whereas another Scottish writer AL Kennedy will scare you with the full story very depressing it is too Music played a role too him mentioning CDs he was listening to and groups he liked which reminded me a bit of Alan Warner most famous for Morvern Callar although I prefer his book These Demented Lands MacNeil's style of writting is really imaginative and keeps you hooked perhaps not as crazy as Warner's but certainly down the same roadExperiencing Scottish life or at least one side to it was interesting I've never been up to Lewis although I would love to go there one day The footnotes about curious words in Gaelic just to show us how deep the language really is and the use of th

    PDF/EPUB altobmen.pro ¸ The Stornoway Way PDF/EPUB ã The Stornoway PDF/EPUB stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFWow This was brutal It beats you about the head as punishing and relentless as the 'Leodhasach' weather Despite the abuse you stick with it for the vulnerable moments and the downright hilarious ones And as with all fiction for the moments where you see aspects of your own life or personality reflected right back at you as though the page was a mirrorSo the scene in the Pear Tree in Edinburgh brought back nice memories R Stornoway's frank admissions of drinking to obliteration point some not so nice memories or rather non memories Most spooky of all though was the passage about indulging in you own self pity while listening to Counting Crows as I've just written a blog entry on precisely the same subject Weird
