    " This book took me a while to get through, because it is quite dark, heavy, and written in vernacular Edinburgh Scottish. However, I was caught up in the whole Trainspotting thing, living in London when the movie hit the scene, where the posters for the film were everywhere you turned in each Underground tube station and the movie's soundtrack was on everyone's stereo. It really hits paydirt as a herion junkie experience. You can feel what it is like to be held down in that existence. It's a bad life to live, but Welsh really lives it up within that horrible existence. The characters aren't lovable, but you get a whole rainbow of them who have ended up in the same place, so it is not a one-dimensional character hitting rock bottom. "Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that?" "

    " very cool, and one of my first ever encounters with accent transcription. it was a struggle for the nineteen-year old me but i made it. this book is a true one-off. "

    " In a similar way to Clockwork Orange once you get past the slightly unusual language used in the writing this emerges as a truly classic book. It shows the obviously much darker side to Edinburgh that the millions of tourists have never seen and sums up the early 90s perfectly. A true modern classic "
