  1. Niall Griffiths was born in Liverpool and has since moved to Aberystwyth Both towns have a strong hold on his imagination His first two novels were set on the west coast of Wales, his third, Stump, re visited his native city.Stump is a surprisingly gentle novel, despite the harshness of two of the book s characters, and the hardships endured by its narrator The story unfolds cleverly each chapter written from Stump s POV is followed by a chapter written in the third person, consisting mainly of [...]


  2. This isn t a book for everyone, but the quirky mix of literary quality and disturbingly graphic humour was right up my alley I am without a doubt the intended audience here I can t begin to explain how good that feels The best I can manage is to say it s like walking into a stranger s house where all the amenities are just like yours It feels like home, although it s still foreign I ll definitely be hunting down from this author.


  3. Vivid writing, sad and bleakly comic by turn, this is the story of a former junkie and recovering alcoholic, whose amputated stump partially serves as a metaphor for his addiction I didn t want to put this down until I found out whether or not he would survive the outcome of his past life catching up with him.


  4. Ripped through this one after grading was finished Niall Griffiths writes like nobody else he s compared to Irvine Welsh, but he is never as mean spirited as Welsh can be Griffiths treats his characters working class, addicts and alcoholics, disabled, even thugs with great compassion, even though he s edgy, and the f bombs abound The f bombs, too, make for wildly lyrical prose Stump is told in alternating voices Every other chapter is narrated by a recovering alkie addict who lost his left arm t [...]


  5. Library Journal Griffiths s characters come straight out of a British gangster film mixed with Irvine Welsh s druggy street squalor You ve got your stock knuckle dragging heavies, your bad guy on the lam trying to go straight, and your expletive ridden vernacular holding it all together Our hero is hiding out in the Welsh countryside, running from a mob boss who has him pinned for revenge As he contemplates his seedy past, two thugs drive down from Liverpool to take him out There is eloquence am [...]


  6. It was ok, the language flitted between speech and story, the speech language slowed me down, changed the rhythm of the book, took away from the story, I m not talking about the the strong words but the writing to try and convey a dialect accent The story though was good and the ending I liked a lot a sliding doors moment.


  7. a surprisingly gentle novel about a very fucked up dude who is adjusting to his one armedness, small town wales life by the shore, and being out of the dark life, and giving up booze but then his old life comes for a visit as two bad guys from the city, sent to mess him up a good entre for people who are tempted yet scared of niall griffiths


  8. Ok but not as dark as other of his books More humour but less of a plot building to a violent climax like most of his other books it was ok but not great


  9. Even though I felt I had to purge myself of the profane words after I finished reading it it s over the top excessive , I still have to admit it was a profound read.
