Skagboys - Irvine Welsh,
This review is from: Skagboys (Hardcover)
I read Trainspotting when I was a teenager and it was like nothing I had read before, it made me realise that literature could be angry and that was exciting! With it being one of those seminal "books" in my reading life, I had alot of expectations for Skagboys, and well, I wasn't disappointed! Welsh is back on form with what is the best thing I have read from him in, well, years. It's a really clever and exciting insight into who the Trainspotting boys were before - I found it a bit long though, but other than that, it's an excellent read. Go get it!
