Review:

Ecstasy is spiced with horror, passion and necrophilia. These flavors help make the tales more tempting, but it is Irvine Welsh's infectious Scottish humor, balanced wry observation with a cavalier canniness, which keeps the reader turning the pages...unforgettably original! "

Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing in decades.

[O]ne of the most significant writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit, and force, and in a voice which those alienated by much current fiction clearly want to hear.

Reading Irvine Welsh is like watching Tarantino exciting, urgent, thrilling, repulsive."

Welsh's world is piky, trashy, and brutal. It is also brilliant, hilarious, and infused with a kind of punkish morality...outrageously funny.

Ecstasy is spiced with horror, passion and necrophilia. These flavors help make the tales more tempting, but it is Irvine Welsh's infectious Scottish humor, balanced wry observation with a cavalier canniness, which keeps the reader turning the pages...unforgettably original!

Reading Irvine Welsh is like watching Tarantino--exciting, urgent, thrilling, repulsive.
