    Pure "Filth"...

    Wow, the book definitely lives up to it's title "Filth"!

    Detective Sgt. Bruce Robertson is one despicable bastard!

    He takes drugs, abuses his police power, is addicted to pornography, takes bribes, masterbates compulsively, is a sex fiend, has a nasty bit of eczema below the belt & has a tapeworm in his gut!

    D.S. Robertson is a filthy human being, he back stabs his friends & co-workers, tells extremely harmful and deceitful lies to women to sleep with them and he stinks "literally"!

    Once you get used to the Scottish slang used throughout this book, it really takes off. Bruce's misadventures are a laugh and his bad attitude is relentless.

    The tapeworm in Bruce's gut talks occasionally throughout the book, it may sound odd, but it genius! The tapeworm tells the story of how Bruce grew to be the "Filth" that he is.

    The book keeps a good pace throughout, but really delivers in the last 3/4 of the story.

    The ending was perfect, easily one of the finest endings to any story I've read in awhile!

    can't get enough of Irvine Welsh

    Slightly different from his other works, not as funny, but still vintage Welsh. A good plot, and about a different kind of loser this time. The character of Bruce is just brilliantly written and I loved the ending when you find out why he is the way he is. This man, Irvine Welsh, is just so incredible, that there needs to be classes taught on his books. Maybe there is?? Definitely recommended!!!!!!!

    Couldn't put it down.

    Filth, that's the name of the game. In this non-stop degridation of others story we have one of the most unique charecters I've read about. Both repulsive and compulsivly addictive this book takes you through a journey of self realization that ends quite dramatically. It was difficult at first with most of the people speaking with a scottish accent and with terms that we Americans aren't very used to but trust me you get used to it fast. Worth the time and I will tell others of this most bizarre gem.

    Worthwhile book

    True to it's namesake, this book is just filled with FILTH. If you aren't a very liberal person this book IS NOT for you but otherwise it is a very good book with a shocking ending. I really enjoyed reading it, many parts made me laugh out loud. The only hard part about this book was the fact that I am an American and some of the speech and dialougue used was a little bit hard to understand.
