The chapter Bad Blood in Trainspotting is particularly disturbing and it's no wonder why it didn't make the film.

I agree with Burn e

Read Maribou Stork Nightmare

One of the most disturbing books I've read

Crackin' ending though

Read it mate, read all his earlier funny ones(the first 4),read Trainspotting when it first came out, lost interest with Filth, read Porno then totally lost interest in Masterchefs and School and anything later. Will probably get round to reading Skagboys at some stage, just cos I read and enjoyed the other 2.
