Text è Trainspotting Ñ Irvine Welsh
TrainspottingThe bestselling novel by Irvine Welsh that provided the inspiration for Danny Boyle’s hit film Choose us Choose life Choose mortgage payments; choos I must have read the first page of Trainspotting than twenty times since purchasing the book years ago and each time I would put it back in fear of all the Scottish dialect There's no point lying this is a challenging novel sometimes you have to read things twice or pause to think about them to fully understand what's being said But unlike a lot of books that are difficult to read this was ultimately rewarding and once you get used to the slang words it becomes a very gritty moving and funny readTrainspotting is a story about a bunch of Scottish heroin addicts Rents Sick Boy others it's about the dregs of society and it's about prostitutes If you don't like reading about these kind of people you won't like the book If you have problems with the 'C' word you definitely won't like this book It's told in several short stories that switch between first and third person narrative and switch between character point of views Many of my usual rules have been broken for this book I don't like multiple perspectives I don't like spending time deciphering the text I don't like sentences that are made up of profanities But all of those factors come together to make a great novel in this rare caseAll the characters are oddly likeable in a way which really says something to me about the author's talent as a writer Even though they are morally uestionable individuals with an ocean of problems they have a very dark and hilarious sense of humour and it is this colour and vivacity that makes it all the heartbreaking when Rents' loses his close friends to HIV and other illnessesIt won't suit everyone Trainspotting is about the people at the bottom of the pile who get easily written off as hopeless and a waste of space but Welsh gives a sense of humanity to these addicts he makes them people with uniue characteristics and personal struggles that we can offer sympathy to I'm just sorry I put it off for so long

Rento stops to give his jaws another grind I've read this book three times now Once during high school once during college and once as an adult Reading this book feels like going home It makes me believe that really great books can be found anywhere In some ways I feel the book is a product of the 80s but I remember it as an essential part of the 90s For some reason the Renton's mates seem like the most universal set of characters in the world Everyone has one friend who is a lady killer like Sick Boy a good hearted man like Spud a stalwart like Tommy and an absolute bastard like Begby As for Mark well he is the dude most likely to be the one narrating the tale I sensitive never do weller who is too sensitive for his own good Who of us hasn't had these problems; who of us hasn't had friends like these; who us hasn't wanted an escape from the tedium of modern life? Others on goodreads have analyzed the novel from a writerly perspective I wonder how the book got published because it is a bad book but because it is so uniuely good that you only realize how good it is by investing your time in reading it again and again and learning the slang if you don't know Scottish dialect The book seems to be authentic because it doesn't try too hard to be something it's not Perhaps that's the message for writers reading this book be who you are as a writer for good or ill and hopefully it will all work Or you can just give up writing and live a normal happy healthy life Whin yir off the writing all you think about is writing Oan the writing ye worry aboot loads ay things Nae money cannae git an agent Goat an agent won't return your calls Cannae git a publisher nae chance ay a making it Git a publisher too much hassle canne breathe withoot them gitten oan yir case Either that or ye blow it and feel aw guilty Ye worry aboot bills these effete critics beatin us aw the things that ye couldnaegie a fuck aboot whin yuv given up the writing
