You've seen the film now read the book
on 21 May 2017
I read this book before the hype of the film and could not imagine such a complex book translating well to the big screen. Fortunately, it is different enough to make it worth reading if you have seen the now dated film and takes away the slightly cartoonish characters replacing them with people you can relate to even though your lifestyle may be a million miles away from dark drug dens in Leith.
