  • Quite scary how much I related Chambers. I, too, worked in a supermarket in the 90s while spending my college days getting pissed. The L-Shapes and having to "dress down" at the behest of the bosses brought back a shit load of memories.Yes, you could argue this book answers no questions and doesn't go anywhere, but it's bit supposed to. You have to dig deeper to find the truth this book delivers, and it does it well. This is a book about self-analysis and about a confusing stage in life, which i [...]


  • Good tale, one I can relate too. Funny, smart, but didn't take off like I thought. Maybe that's why I like it though!addendum: This is one of those rare books, that, like Trainspotting or A Clockwork Orange, gets better on the second read. I think I'm guilty of reading it too fast due to the Not the Booker bullshit. Reading it again, it is a very accomplished book. not delivered as a voice in book, more noir, indie film. The near lack of story is brilliant (Think Northern Exposure). A very good [...]


  • From the start, this novel flows very naturally. The reader is able to get to know Chambers quickly, and begin to gain insight into his thoughts and day to day lifestyle. Although the main character is far from remarkable, you find yourself drawn in, wanting to know more about him and his past. There are aspects of Chamber's character that most people will recognise; the uncertainty of the future, the feeling that everyone else is doing better than you, and a desire to block out the more unpleas [...]


  • English Slacker is a slim volume, and what is contained within is a story of a young man and a story where not much happens. But a lot of great books are made of the tedium of everyday life, so don’t let that stop you.For me, this book reminded me of friends I haven’t thought about in a long time. Old friends from my early teens who smoked weed and got into small troubles. English Slacker is one of those books that is like sitting with a couple of those stoner friends who decide to tell you [...]


  • English Slacker takes place in that final summer after school is over, and university or whatever else beckons beyond.We follow 18-year-old Chambers as he enjoys all the drink, drugs, awkward encounters with the opposite sex and bumming around that summer has to offer in his coastal English town. But less enjoyable for him are his reoccurring memories of an old friend, Colin, and his attempts to get his head around what happened with Colin - who despite not being around any more is still having [...]


  • Have won a copy through First Reads (thank you). Will put up a review once I have received and read the book 06/06/2011A refreshingly good read. The characterisation of the main protagonist is authentically realistic and although he is in no way regarded as being classed as a 'hero' in the novel, his exploits with drink, drugs and girls are extremely fun to read. The book explores various (past) events into the character development and there is plenty going on to keep the reader interested. A v [...]


  • Came across this book recently in Brighton. Great original style of writing. The author approaches the story in a very interesting way, in some respects this reads like an indie film although the authenticity in the characters and scenes probably makes it work better as a book. The main character Chambers is a likeable teenage anti-hero whose exploits mostly involve drink, drugs and girls. Following him on his journey was exciting for me, even though I personally don't have much in common with s [...]


  • Chambers (the main character in this book) is like nobody I have met before in the same way that this book is like no other book I have read before. I was absolutely hooked by this character's narration of his life. Morton writes in a fresh, unique way that is absolutely gripping as well as entertaining. I hope to read more from this author.(The book contains a lot of swearing and use of drugs, which is all in context. Definitely not for children. I only mention this as some people may be readin [...]


  • One of the most uneventful stories I've ever read. The novel follows a young man named Chambers, an eighteen year old small town guy who decides to utilize his last enjoyable summer smoking pot and getting drunk on a daily basis. There's nothing you can get out of this book that you can't get from watching an episode of Skins.


  • Published in June 2011. A good summer read, especially for readers in their late teens to early thirties.
