Welsh's brutally honest prose and gallery of likeable ne'er-do-wells are in full display here, but the novel feels somewhat superfluous. Porno adds little insight into the characters or events of Trainspotting and fails to match its invention or sense of purpose. However, the author's obvious affection for these characters and dedication to authentically rendered dialogue and setting elevate Porno above mere slapdash reworking. As the novel builds momentum, Welsh wonderfully communicates the intense bravado driving his reckless characters. During such moments of vitality and humor, Porno is superficial but undeniably charming. --Ross Doll --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The whole book is in first person, split up into short sections.
The sequel to Welsh's "Trainspotting" brings back many of your favorite characters, from Rents to Spud to Begbie, as well as introduces some new characters.
Such sloppiness kind of mocks the written phonetic Scots excellence of Welsh's dialogue.
Pure brilliance! When I set out a few weeks ago to read Trainspotting I did not know there was more to be revealed. Read morePublished 1 month ago by VirgilCane
Most of Irvine Welsh books are a slow go because he phonetically writes out the slang used by his Scottish low life characters, thus making it all unintelligible for non-Scots. Read morePublished 2 months ago by lazza
