"One gripe I had, and something that might be worth discussion was the phoenetic spelling of dialect/heavily accented speech In Christopher Brookmyre's, otherwise excellent story. I found it really interrupted the flow. At what stage is it necessary/acceptable to render speech like this?'

In the stage following James Kelman winning a Booker Prize? Or after the popularity of Irvine Welsh?
