The book follows the exploits Bruce Robertson, a plain clothes police officer in Edinburgh, who is maneuvering for a promotion. He engages in a series of "games" to sabotage his rivals' changes at beating him, but we quickly realize that this is simply an excuse, as he engages in other games simply for his own cruel amusement. The latter include a number of misogynistic and manipulative relationships with women.
Robertson, or "Robbo", is a classic Welsh anti-hero. He's by turns despicable, comical, sympathetic, and ultimately simply pathetic. The author gradually and deftly introduces the reader to both the depths of Robertson's depravity, and the dark history that led to his misanthropy. Welsh is very good at foreshadowing without giving things away, and even the things you'll probably figure out turn out to be much stranger than you thought. Without giving away any spoilers, I'll just that right when you're sure things can't get any darker, Welsh will show you you're wrong.
Definitely not for everyone, but if you're a Welsh fan, this book is a must read.
Though I've seen "Trainspotting" several times, this is the first book I've read by Welsh. I love the way he shines a merciless klieg light on this character, exposing every pockmark and pustule (literally). I found myself enjoying every debased impulse and misplaced justice, no matter how cringe-inducing. And I appreciated Welsh sprinkling in a few scenes that were sit-com funny, as they provided a sense of genuine comic relief. It may be years before I can again bring myself to witness the utter atrocity that is D.S. Robertson, but in the mean time I will judge every other literary ne'er-do-well by the standard he has set.
This story follows the life of a man falling apart. He has no morals, he is a racist, sexist ego driven pig basically. The story is disturbing as the main character treats people terribly on his way down.
I rate it 4 stars as I think it is well written and true to its time and theme, but I wouldn't recommend it to any nice people to read.
