Book Review

Espedair Street by Iain Banks

Great for Banks fans


I have read a lot of books by Iain Banks and generally enjoy them very much, apart from the small passages of ‘weird stuff’. Fans will know what I mean. Some will love it. Some, like me, will continue to appreciate the high quality of his work in spite of it.
In this book, Banks takes his character, Daniel Weir, on a fascinating journey in life, from messed-up teens to rock star and crashing failure. He does so with atmosphere and humour.
