'An unremitting powerhouse of a novel that marks the arrival of a major new talent. Trainspotting is a loosely knotted string of jagged, dislocated tales that lay bare the hearts of darkness of the junkies, wide-boys and psychos who ride in the down escalator of opportunity in the nation's capital. Loud with laughter in the dark, this novel is the real McCoy. If you haven't heard of Irvine Welsh before-don't worry, you will' The Herald

Review by s_mcinally
I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. I read it when I was young and impressionable and before it was a big hit and it blew me away. Don't know how I would feel now but for what it did when I first read it I'm giving it a 4.

A book I need toread again soon. Has you using the Scottish vernicular with a clever Prose and an excellent story to boot.
