really liked it

Welsh decides to return to the characters he brought so vividly to life in Trainspotting, and we get to see what became of them around ten years later. It's a slow burner, with Renton hiding in Amsterdam and Sick Boy down on his luck in Soho, but once 'dear Shimon' heads back to Leith to take charge of a sleazy boozer the whole thing starts to hot up and becomes almost as engaging as it's prequel.
I rated the book 4 stars, I dropped a star because the only time the book suffers is when Welsh tries to write from the woman's point of view, which ends up something of an epic failure. 'ken?
