    Trainspotting

    I struggled with the written version of this 20 years ago and gave up at some point in the early chapters. The phonetic spellings were too distracting and I couldn't get into it. With the new movie coming out, I tried again, and once again it didn't work for me.

    But as spoken Scots accents are so musical to me, when the lightbulb went off in my head to look for the audiobook, well, it was a no-brainer.

    The reader/narrator did a wonderful job bringing the book to life.

    The book itself is so much more than the movie (not to take anything away from the movie, though), with emotional kicks to the gut when least expected, and the connection with the characters is on another level entirely.

    For anyone who had a hard time reading the book, I strongly recommend trying the audiobook version. Very much worth it.

    Powerful, Profane and Profound

    This is a marvelous novel and a wonderful audiobook. Tam Dean Burn manages to capture Welsh's multifaceted characters nicely, and easily navigates some tricky dialects.

    As the book is written in dialect, it can be a challenging read. I first read the novel, which includes a glossary of terms, and was very helpful. Before long, I had absorbed the language. I might suggest at least looking at a copy of the book first to get a better idea of Welsh's use of language.

    For those readers who make the effort, however, Trainspotting is well worth it. Less of a novel and more of a series of interrelated stories which combine to make a very satisfying whole.

    Impossible to read, easier to listen to

    I checked this book out in college and couldn’t figure out how to read it because of the dialogue... listening makes it way easier, and you get sort of used to it over time and start to understand more. It’s a good story, but for my American ears, sometimes hard to follow.

    I have to stick to the movie on this one just because of the slang barrier.

    A Disgusting Masterpiece

    This is not for the faint of heart. There's human excrement and fluids alike, and intravenous injection pretty consistently.

    But Holy COW is this a great book. It's heartbreaking and touching while still keeping loyal to the gritty reality it portrays. This book has reached into my top 3 or 4.

    Also, the audiobook is a savior. I've always struggled through the physical copy because of the dialect, but this makes it not only understandable, but powerful. It feels incredibly real.

    Highly, HIGHLY, recommend.

    Fantastic listen.

    I'm a sucker for Scots. I could listen to it all day. The story is great and I now feel a need to revisit the movie.

    Brilliant

    It's just as good as I thought, if not better. Irvine is a genius. I don't really know what else to say. I'm kind of at a loss for words.

    Classic

    Trainspotting, along with most of Irvine Welsh’s catalog, is a visceral experience in both writing and audiobook.

    Tam Dean Burn provides, at minimum, a riveting performance that sees him effortlessly maneuver a multitude of raw Scots and British English dialects—both Male and Female—with explosive bursts of passion that make the experience feel completely genuine.

    The book presents a very unique style of presentation and prose which characterizes most of Welsh’s work. The chronology is mostly ambiguous due to the presence of some chapters existing originally as short stories and the lack of real dates outside of it being known to be the close to the early 90s. This creates a feeing of existing in real-time without the preconception of period based specificity and allows the listener to feel closer to the characters and their stories.

    For listeners who have a difficult time understanding the vernacular of the different dialects spoken, it may help to read along if you also have the book. The book offers glossary as well which can aid in familiarizing yourself with the variety of jargon and slang. You can also adjust the playback speed to less than 1.0x, with 0.8x providing the best comprehensibility without sounding artificial.

    I have listened to Trainspotting well over 30 times and read a physical copy at least as many times and still learn new things about Welsh’s writing and this unique piece of post-modern art.

    If you enjoyed this then the prequel Skagboys will be even better at double the length with more interesting character development of a Mr. Mark Renton and Young Simon David Williamson.

    Jumbled and crazy in the best way possible.

    The accent is H E A V Y.
    The vignette style is very well done and I feel like i got a sense of these people and their hometown.
    Not a single character can be called a "good person" but they are people... and are very relatable.I feel like I just got to spend actual time with these people and that is the best compliment I can give this audiobook.
