Not nearly as good as Trainspotting, but mostly because the feel of the story is gone (perhaps due to the fact that it is written mainly from Sick Boy's point of view and thus not in Scottish). The characters are back from the first book and they have come far from where they once were, though Simon (once called Sick Boy) really hasn't changed much. I did like the insight you got into from his point of view and Irvine Welsh could've written it from Mark's point of view like he had in Trainspotting, but I'm glad he didn't. This book is not a necessary read for those who have read the first one and is rather a continuation of the story for those who would like to know more about what happens and can't deal with the "This is life, stuff happens" end of Trainspotting.
