Publisher's Summary

Mark Renton is a very sick young man. He's sick of heroin and sick of trying to get off it but, above all, Renton is thoroughly sick of himself. What with vampire ghost babies, exploding siblings and disatorous sexual encounters, it's pain to see why Renton gloomily contends that 'life does not get any easier'.

Why No UNabridged Version?

This book is as great a listen as the hardcover was to read. And that's saying a LOT for an abridged version of ANYthing. All the credit for that goes to Irvine Welsh.

Why is there no UNabridged version of this book offered through Audible? What kind of reader needs an abridgment of a book? If you care enough to bother to buy a book, then you should care enough to experience the work as it was created by the author, not as some punked-down, arbitrary edit.

I can't understand a word of this book. Seriously. Maybe it'll be good in writing.
