Ten years on from Trainspotting, Simon 'Sick Boy' Williamson is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realize his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city's favorite ex-aerated-water-salesman, 'Juice' Terry Lawson. In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.

I think this is the book 'Porno' re-titled. This isn't a new book but the movie being released (T2) is new. Porno is the sequel to Trainspotting and Skagboys is the prequel which came out after Porno.
At first I thought T2 was going to be a fourth book in the series but it's just a more marketable title than the original Porno. And I can't help but wonder why T2? Wasn't that already used for the Terminator 2 Judgement Day movie? Oh, well. I'm a fan. And while(st) Porno does have a lot of sex in it I wouldn't exactly say it's as bad as Filth.

A worthy sequel to Trainspotting. Welsh does a particularly good job of developing the inner personality of his characters. You will likely have trouble reading several parts of this if you tend to have trouble listening to thick accents.
