Peace, Love, and Petrol Bombs reviewed in Publishers Weekly

July 11, 2011

I don’t think this guy liked it very much:

‘Johnston’s under-developed characters flit from having cheap sex to staging hunger strikes, but at least Wayne–despite severe feelings of disillusionment and loss–proves charming in a book filled with unlikeable characters. Though Johnson [sic] demonstrates the strength of his descriptive prose, some chapters seemed more like short stories unto themselves, rather than key elements in the novel’s evolution. Readers also will need to become accustomed to the Scottish dialect Johnston uses, in which “ken” means “know” and “dinae” [sic] means “don’t.”‘
