In the fag-end of his youth, Simon Sick Boy Williamson is back in his native Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father, and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice.

To enable this scam to work out, Sick Boy needs bedfellows. A desirable one may be the lovely Nicola Fuller-Smith, a young student with enough ambition, ego, and troubles to rival his own. However, to realize his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy gets teamed up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city's favourite ex-aerated-water-salesman: Juice Terry Lawson.

In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other. Porno is a novel about the Trainspotting crew 10 years further down the line: still scheming, still scamming, still trying to fight for the first-class seats as the locomotive careens at high speed towards the buffers.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel Proctor | 2/16/2014

    " dismal follow up to Trainspotting, Welsh jumping for the dollar "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Briony | 2/14/2014

    " Really enjoyed it - good to re-visit the original characters. Welsh never fails to impress me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Araxi | 2/4/2014

    " Is it typical of me to pick up a book with this title? Damn straight. But this is a powerful journey of lyric urbanism. Even the words vibrate off the page with their dark humour and pathos. Fucking loved this one. I give it 5 multi-o's of out five. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rstarin74 | 2/4/2014

    " The lads from Trainspotting ten years later. Sick Boy has a new scheme, and all sorts of mayhem ensues. Reading Irvine Welsh is like reading another language as it's written with a thick Scottish accent, so be prepared to be baffled for about 50 pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Rage | 1/23/2014

    " As a sequal to Trainspotting, Porno is spot-on. All the characters are revisited, some have grow while others have merely grown older. How all those junkies came full circle was a little tough to swallow, but them all being dead or homeless jakeys would not a good sequal make. So, that being said, suspend logic a bit and you will enjoy the ride as all of them get what coming to them with lots of decadence, drugs, sex and other assorted filthy thoughts and deeds in abundance. Welsh is like good, nasty sex, with the inability to wash your doink off in the sink afterward....great high, but sticky and soiled after. Mmmm...maybe I should have found a wet nap!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will | 1/21/2014

    " Sick Boy and Nikki are great characters and the ending is priceless! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thomas | 1/20/2014

    " this is the sequel to trainspotting and to say it sucked donkey dick would be insulting to donkey dick suckers internationally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/14/2014

    " Sequel to Trainspotting. It's tough to get into the groove at first because it's in the Scottish vernacular. But if you can, do. Because it's hilarious? Anonymous gay porn packages, a broken penis, happy endings, and a fair amount of cocaine? What's not to adore? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 12/26/2013

    " Sequel to Trainspotting. Nuff said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/23/2013

    " An OK sequel (as most sequels are) to "Trainspotting". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie F | 12/5/2013

    " Irvine Welsh is getting a little formulaic. This book is Trainspotting + Glue a few years later, and the ending is essentially the same. Instead of heroin, the focus in this book is more on (amateur?) pornography. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/28/2013

    " heh, heh...what I learned from Porno? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linds | 10/26/2013

    " Sequel to Trainspotting. Mark Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie are back trying to make a buck. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 10/12/2013

    " A good read, but too long in places. Vivid, raw yet entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 9/24/2013

    " I don't think it was as good as Trainspotting but it was nice to catch up with some of the characters again and was an interesting look at where their lives had taken them. It was good in its own right. If you loved Trainspotting, it is definitely worth a read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Octavia Biddle | 5/19/2013

    " Ugh. Throw in same basic plot, all same characters, sprinkle in requisite debase crap and heat over low until putrid enough to sell to the indie-hipster masses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy | 5/16/2013

    " The Trainspotting crew (10 years on) get involved in the Porn industry. Begbie is the man.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delisa | 1/18/2013

    " A lot of people who read this at the same time as I did found it very offensive so I guess you should keep that in mind (not that the title alone shouldn't tip you off!), but I liked it. It was different and funny and realistic without coming off as preachy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 9/23/2012

    " Funniest point: man snaps penis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Androo K | 6/28/2012

    " An intensely entertaining follow-up to 'Trainspotting,' Irvine Welsh dishes out the sex, blow, crack, smack, and booze with the best of 'em. Re-itorates the plights of seminal characters Begbie, Sick Boy, Spud, Renton, et al. with precise continuity and a deft ear for language and internal voice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Asdf | 4/25/2012

    " loaner from a friend. turned out to be better than i thought considering that it's a sequel and Trainspotting for me as a malleable undergraduate was like Moses receiving the commandments on Mt Sinai. not so much heroin this time; mostly the llello. -1 star for simply being a sequel, on principle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yvonne | 3/6/2012

    " Loved it even more than Trainspotting...but you have to be able to read in a Scottish accent ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Bridges | 12/19/2011

    " Fun read and a return to the world of Trainspotting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronan Leonard | 8/17/2011

    " The ending was a little weak but otherwise really enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 6/22/2011

    " I remember enjoying it when I read it. Hilarious porn shoots, would be AWESOME to see someone tackle it scene for scene. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy Martin | 6/4/2011

    " A fun read from the author of Trainspotting. Enjoyed but didn't love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patti | 3/9/2011

    " Actually unsettling. The filthiest book I have ever read. Also story is written in part with an "accent" "He dinna noo wha aye was aboot." That gets a bit much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 2/24/2011

    " Fun read and a return to the world of Trainspotting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 12/10/2010

    " far better than Trainspotting. funny macarbe and exciting. more plot and less shock than it's predecessor "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jake | 11/18/2010

    " I was anxious to check this book out after reading Trainspotting but it just didn't live up to my expectations. Slow moving storyline and not as rewarding as the individual chapters in it's predecessor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 11/13/2010

    " very dark and funny in parts a good sequel to trainspotting "

    " Brilliant read, exceptionally funny...You just can't get enough of Begbie as he gets more & more para. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mick | 5/24/2010

    " The sequel to Trainspotting, 10 years on and the boys are just as funny, and drug fueled, only this time there's a side dish of porn. hopefully they'll be able to make it into a movie!! "
