Rated 3 out of 5 by from Entertaining Not Welsh's best, however, I did enjoy. Same subject as most of Welsh's books,drugs in Scotland and relationships. Made me laugh at times, feel disgusted sometimes, and found it entertaining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book I read "Trainspotting" after seeing the film and thought that the book was much better and decided to try another from the same author, I was quite impressed! "Ecstasy" was a love story-type-book that was more true to life than anything else I've heard or seen. It was down-to-earth and dirty, like life itself. I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the movie "Trainspotting" because you have to sort of be a fan to start with. I love books that are hard to explain to people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ecstasy This book is hard to get into for about the first 15 pages, after that it is, well pure "ecstasy". the book is broken up into many chapters; which helps a lot if your the type of person who does not like long "little print" novels. Plus it is also three stories which stops it from getting boring. It is an amazing book in the sense that just when you think you are totally confused and don't have a clue what is going on, Welsh hits you hard so all of a sudden it all makes sense. I wish I could say more. In my top ten for sure! Steve.
