Product description

Amazon Review

Porno is a sequel to Trainspotting, and builds on the success of that caustic and very funny novel by taking some of the characters through some radical new catastrophes. Sick Boy returns to Edinburgh with his ventures as a pimp and hustler in London having gone pear-shaped. Desperate for money, he comes up with a new idea, one that (he hopes) will really rake in the cash: the production of a low-rent porn film. Now Welsh introduces us to a new development: the novel’s Sick Girl, Nicola Fuller-Smith, the object of Sick Boy's fevered lust, whom he also believes will be his passport to all kinds of substance-abusing happiness – needless to say, he’s in for a rude awakening.

Other favourite characters from Trainspotting make a welcome reappearance: Renton, Begbie (even more psychotically dangerous than in the earlier book) and the unfortunate Spud, still unable to kick the drugs. Welsh fans need not hesitate: this is every bit as exuberant, hilarious, disgusting and irresistible as its predecessor.--Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

After his star rose in the mid 1990s, Irvine Welsh's novels, while dividing critics, have garnered much attention, but his latest is a publisher's wet dream: Porno is the sequel to Trainspotting. No manuscript is currently available but the book will see Sick Boy return to Edinburgh after an unsuccessful period in 'business' (read pimp and hustler) in London. Back home, he's got a new plan to make money which involves the production of a porn film. Cue the introduction of Nicola Fuller-Smith, the book's very own Sick Girl and object of his desire, as well as the reintroduction of Renton, the increasingly unhinged Begbie and a still drug-addled Spud. A guaranteed success and a long-term one as the team behind the Trainspotting movie are likely to adapt this sequel.
