"Abhorrently dark and raw to the core, Trainspotting is an insight into one of life's many ugly personalities - addiction and the accompanying domino effect of grim inevitabilities... Irvine Welsh's novel will always be a cult classic." -- Tori Chalmers * Culture Trip *
"Welsh's skill as a storyteller is undeniable, bringing both wit and compassion to a grim subject matter. If you liked Danny Boyle's film adaptation, you'll love the original." -- Maddy Searle * i *
"The voice of punk, grown up, grown wiser and grown eloquent" * Sunday Times *
"The best book ever written by man or woman... Deserves to sell more copies than the bible" * Rebel Inc *
"Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing for decades" * Sunday Times *
