A must if you want to know what happened to the main characters in Trainspotting. Renton, Begbie et al are 10 years older, but are they any wiser? Although set in and around the sex industry, the novel is not designed to titillate. Sex, violence, drugs and swearing abound, so if these are no-go areas for you, steer clear. Otherwise, it's just a book about downtrodden Scotsmen trying to make a quick buck. Very pacy and down-to-earth.
