    Before I could pick up this book, the professor at my college replace the reading of it with watching the movie. From what I know about the material (as opposed to Ewan McGregor, who stars in the movie), it is about drugs, drugs, and drugs. You’ll find yourself struggling with the characters and maybe even finding them a bit bullheaded if that’s possible. The story has kind of a movie feel to it by the end with the twist, and who gets rewarded garners the attention of the viewer/reader. I probably would not have considered myself as having experienced this work without the book, but if the professor okays it, so do I!

    I would recommend this product along with Sirens of Morning Light by Benjamin Anderson, a quest for a man in Iowa to regain his identity, which becomes entangled with people who claim to have known him when he discovers he is a scientific experiment. Make sure not to miss either book.

    Loved it

    The this only the second book I've read by Irvine Welsh and now I am convinced I will have to read all of them. Even if you don't care about the losers in his books, the trip inside their world is so fascinating, compelling and hard to turn away from that you will return again and again to the world of Irvine Welsh. The writing is SO good that it astounds me. I've now gotten used to the 'burr' and although it slows the reader down, it's worth it and makes you savor the books even more. Why is this man not nominated for more awards. He deserves every literary award available.

    equally as good as the movie

    I really hate it when I see a movie that is really outstanding and then I find out that it was a book as well. I always end up reading the book because I enjoy the fullness of character that a movie just can't provide. After reading the book I found Mark Rentons character to be dynamic and real. I can't remember the last time I read a book where I knew the character so intemitly. The book also contains a subchapter entitled 'Bad Blood' that is out of place and fits perfectly at the same time; a would be outstanding short story. All in all I would invest time to at least the movie or the book, but they are both outstanding.
