I read this a while ago, thought I'd give it another go since it's been so long! An extremely raw tale in which the main character, in a coma, switches between flashbacks of his childhood and career as a hooligan and hallucinations of African safaris. Less drug-related than some of Irvine Welsh's other work, this novel is fantastic in its brutality (that sounds kind of strange but...). Welsh always does a great job painting realistic, often harsh and sordid worlds for his characters, and this is no different. And upon reading it a second time, yikes. I forgot how intense this novel gets. Not my favorite Irvine Welsh book, but it's right up there.
I can now have an intelligent conversation with any adolescent in America now that I have read Twilight. I am still wondering what it looks like when a vampire who appears to be 17 smolders without actually being on fire.
Bloom Peters is a regular Earth girl, until the day she meets Stella Solaris, princess and fairy of Solaria, fighting an ogre in the park. When Bloom accidently releases a huge burst of magical energy, she realizes she has Winx power like Stella. So Bloom goes off to Alfea College for Fairies and meets three more friends: Flora Lavencense from Linphea, Musa Beatrock from Melody, and Tecna Binary from Zenith. But when the three Trix, Icy, Darcy, and Stormy, try to steal Stella's scepter, it's up to the Winx to save the day! I've always been a fan of the Winx Club. I really don't know why, I just love it. But anyway, I like the idea of books summarozong TV shows. I think this one is a summary of episodes 1 to about 3 or 4. But yonestly, I like the show better. But I guess you can't beat the original. I'm gonna emd this off with a request. Kirsten! Remember to give me your Lockette and Amore dolls when you don't want them anymore!!
