On a still and frozen day between Christmas and New Year, a man's body is found lying in his ruined flat. Found, and then taken away, examined, investigated and cremated. As the state begins its detailed, dispassionate inquest, the man embarks on his last journey through a world he has not ventured into, alive, for years. In his wake, a series of fractured narratives emerge as his friends who look on from the shadows, keep vigil as the hours pass.

    " Good idea. Just really not my cup of tea. In all honesty don't bother. "

    " I cannot think of any other writer who weaves together language, images and emotions so beautifully. Every line is perfectly and seamlessly crafted. I love this book! "

    " Incredibly bleak but fascinating novel - really interesting to read something that is written in a totally different style to most books out there. The author does a great job of conveying the personalities of the various characters, despite the sparse language. "

    " Best thing about the book was the courageous attempt at the narrative style McGregor employs for the novella. Hadn't read a book with this narrative style before and it engaged me for 60-70 pages but then began to lose its grip. Better for a short-story maybe but the narrative style does capture the helplessness the characters feel towards the main protagonist of the story - if there is one. I have read a lot of negative reviews particularly towards McGregor's efforts to capture the bleakness of the towns, streets and homes of the characters which I think is unfair. These places do exist and while they have been explored in a variety of books before; it is maybe the fault of the reader and not McGregor that they have just read too many novels set in these types of areas i.e satellite town, high unemployment, drug abouse etc. Irvine Welsh captures the life of the social underbelly of such areas famously in "Trainspotting" and McGregor's efforts just don't match it. If you want to read something that explores such topics and areas as "Even the Dogs" or "Trainspotting" try "This Road is Red" by Allison Irvine. "
