    The ending, the damn ending to the book.It s been like five years since I last cried with a book, I actually had to step out of the office I started reading the book on the bus ride to work, I had 20 pages to go when I arrived and I sure as hell wasn t going to stop reading and to the bathroom to try and cool myself down view spoiler when I read the last two pages hide spoiler.The book is disgusting in every imaginable way, but it somehow keeps you going Even though the situations he p The ending, the damn ending to the book.It s been like five years since I last cried with a book, I actually had to step out of the office I started reading the book on the bus ride to work, I had 20 pages to go when I arrived and I sure as hell wasn t going to stop reading and to the bathroom to try and cool myself down view spoiler when I read the last two pages hide spoiler.The book is disgusting in every imaginable way, but it somehow keeps you going Even though the situations he puts himself into are a bit on the surreal side, the main character himself is actually a quite realistic human asshole and very few times falls under the caricaturized version of evil view spoiler The last 80 pages, the whole humanization process of the policeman previously known as the asshole, turning him from something you despise into someone you feel pity for, and even partially understand why he is the way he is You end up somehow vicariously caring about this sorry broken man for all the shit that at first because life s just a bitch, then because he was just an ass he s had to endure hide spoiler And I mean, the caring up until you re actually crying, that s no small feat of Mr Welsh here Those final chapters were simply amazing.I was thinking it was an okay book until I, we, I got there I m glad I chose this book as an introduction into Welsh s writing, I m quite sure I ll revisitof his work once I feel my gut is up to it again Because while I m glad I grabbed these book, I m just ecstatic about the fact that I can finally put it down and stop reading about the pure gross ness behind the adventures of a Mr Bruce Robertson

    I m so glad I listen to my friend s book recommendations sometimes FILTH is the story of Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson, and the first thing you should know about him is that he s a complete and utter Bastard.During the build up to Christmas the race is on for the much desired Detective Inspector position and Bruce is adamant that he is going to be the one Now if that means he s got to lie, cheat, steal, manipulate and back stab his way there, then you can safely bet that he will The I m so glad I listen to my friend s book recommendations sometimes FILTH is the story of Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson, and the first thing you should know about him is that he s a complete and utter Bastard.During the build up to Christmas the race is on for the much desired Detective Inspector position and Bruce is adamant that he is going to be the one Now if that means he s got to lie, cheat, steal, manipulate and back stab his way there, then you can safely bet that he will The media sensitive murder investigation of a black tourist might cause some trouble, but that s not going to stop him enjoying his week holiday of drinking and whoring in the Dam It is refreshing from time to time to read a first person perspective of a complete and utter Cunt He is a user, a misogynist, a racist, a drug user, and an abuser All the things most people aren t And he s unashamedly so as well, he has no qualms with lying or betraying his friends in his selfish designs Bruce Robertson is the type of controversial character that although despicable you just can t ignore He is just so reprehensible and disgusting, and that s before we get onto the rash on his cock or the tapeworm growing in his stomach.A truly inspired idea to give consciousness to the Tapeworm Bruce is all but lacking a conscience There is no Jiminy Cricket sitting on his shoulder telling him right from wrong, but there is a Tapeworm who refers to itself as The Self Like the reader, the Tapeworm learnsandabout Bruce as the book continues In the end it s the worm who is Bruce s advocate and perhaps last remaining meaningful contact as Bruce has all but fucked over every human being he has came across.Despite the drugs, meaningless affairs, betrayals and tortures Filth is actually very funny Irvine Welsh has a flair for dialogue that cuts to the bone and a writing style that engrosses the reader Forthright and unabashed in it s overtly controversial opinions, it stands out like the best stand up comedian Daring to be dark, disgusting, and horrible saying and doing things so that the reader or any well adjusted member of society does not have to I m glad my friends put me onto this book otherwise I might never have picked it up Irvine Welsh is better known for hisfamous novel, Trainspotting , something which isof a story OUT of darkness Filth is the opposite, it is a descent INTO darkness A story of loss told through abuse, consumption, self loathing and Tapeworms.You are unlikely to find a book like it

    Same rules apply I needed a book I could finally rate 5 stars As many said before me the book perfectly corresponds to the title filth There is nothing I ve read before that so perfectly illustrates utter and complete burn out Our protagonist, Bruce is a cop whose life is in ruins, his wife left him, he drinks, takes drugs and fucks whores, on top of that there is eczema all over his privates and a tapeworm in his guts.Reading this is like fast forwarding on a nightmare where the same ele Same rules apply I needed a book I could finally rate 5 stars As many said before me the book perfectly corresponds to the title filth There is nothing I ve read before that so perfectly illustrates utter and complete burn out Our protagonist, Bruce is a cop whose life is in ruins, his wife left him, he drinks, takes drugs and fucks whores, on top of that there is eczema all over his privates and a tapeworm in his guts.Reading this is like fast forwarding on a nightmare where the same elements keep repeating and everything spirals out of control slowly Bruce hates everything and everyone and his only joy left is making people s live hell around him with perfectly planned scheming Most if not all of his thoughts are racist, misogynistic,homophobic, hateful, angry and nihilistic At a certain point the only sound of reason is the tapeworm inside him The ending brings a true catharsis, it shows that the things that happened weren t just pointless rants from the writer and one could close the book with a sense of every piece falling to its place Welsh s writing is incredibly powerful, it swept me away and I kept reading it compulsively to the very last page I m certain that this book is a masterpiece in its own way

    I have never been so glad to finish a book Great writer, and I found bits of it funny, but my overriding impression of the whole experience of reading it, was one of deep depression I am glad to say that I will never have to do that again

    There are several reasons why I will never forget this book The main reason is Bruce Robertson, the main character of Filth.Bruce Robertson is a Police Investigator in Edinburgh He s also, in every sense of the word, the WORST human being you can imagine He s depraved, completely void of morality, racist, and worst of all, believes in what he does Reading this book actually makes you fearful that there are people out there like this in positions of power His actions are awe inducing in th There are several reasons why I will never forget this book The main reason is Bruce Robertson, the main character of Filth.Bruce Robertson is a Police Investigator in Edinburgh He s also, in every sense of the word, the WORST human being you can imagine He s depraved, completely void of morality, racist, and worst of all, believes in what he does Reading this book actually makes you fearful that there are people out there like this in positions of power His actions are awe inducing in their maliciousness Sometimes they are horrifying And amazingly, if you connect with this book not everybody will , you will actually laugh out loud Sometimes at yourself when you come to the realization that you are actually finding humor in his actions In my adventures of reading modern fiction, I don t think I ve ever come across such a horrible creation such as Bruce Robertson He is filth.That said, what a thrill this book was, and what a thrill it is to discover a novelist such as Irvine Welsh He s drunk on the possibilities of language, and that s what makes this book so special He makes it bearable to co exist with Bruce Robertson for almost 400 pages because he writes in such a way that gets you on the same wavelength as his character And as Bruce finds justification in his actions and philosophies, even if you don t as a reader, you are still right there with him the entire time The Scottish dialect is easy to get used to, and adds so much to the authenticity and grit to the story Couple all of this with a truly satisfying ending, and this is one of the most fun and memorable reads I ve come across I ll surely be seeking outIrvine Welsh to read as well.Update 24 hours have passesd since I finished Filth and wrote the review above As the book continues to linger on my mind, I find myself feelingandsympathy for Bruce Truly the mark of a good bookthat it remains with you and continues to make you think

    A few years back I was watching some pissed off religious zealot going all loony on TV because gays were having their pride parade oh, the horror and proposing they should all be sent to the desert or be given a country Australia, he suggested to inhabit Maybe I should have been outraged, but I couldn t stop laughing to tears at the poor ignorant fool and his unbelievable stupidity Some people are so deranged, you just can t take them seriously.My reaction to Bruce Robertson was no A few years back I was watching some pissed off religious zealot going all loony on TV because gays were having their pride parade oh, the horror and proposing they should all be sent to the desert or be given a country Australia, he suggested to inhabit Maybe I should have been outraged, but I couldn t stop laughing to tears at the poor ignorant fool and his unbelievable stupidity Some people are so deranged, you just can t take them seriously.My reaction to Bruce Robertson was not much different Yes, he s a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a cokehead, a liar, a scum Everything you despise in a human being He s the lowest form of life possible His words, thoughts and actions end up with you angry and repulsed and swallowing back a bit of your own vomit You sure don t empathize with him because you re a decent human being who s been sheltered from this kind of behaviour and lived surrounded by nice people your whole life And if you can t empathize with the scumbag character you might not like the book You might even fall into a trap and get the impression that the book promotes hatred and glamorizes despicable behavior But I think the difference between right and wrong is clearly defined here it s wrong what Bruce thinks and does, it s right what Bruce says mockingly, when he contradicts his own regular dirty thoughts Thoughts that are not beliefs, though They re just a form of self defense, because at his deep core, Bruce is not as horrible as he appears Bruce is not to be taken seriously, he s not where you draw your morals from that would be Drummond, his antagonist You just pity him or point at him and laugh at his ignorance Did you know this is being made into a movie starring James McAvoy and Jamie Bell

    A good book, following the exploits of the world s second worst police officer through the things he does.Unfortunately the main character is so difficult to relate to he does the most awful things for no reason other than he can wants to, and I can t understand that that by the time of his trip to Amsterdam you re left numb The constant series of horrors which are entertaining and shocking to begin with become something that you are accustomed to, the horror you were feeling at his physica A good book, following the exploits of the world s second worst police officer through the things he does.Unfortunately the main character is so difficult to relate to he does the most awful things for no reason other than he can wants to, and I can t understand that that by the time of his trip to Amsterdam you re left numb The constant series of horrors which are entertaining and shocking to begin with become something that you are accustomed to, the horror you were feeling at his physical mental state and his actions towards others to begin with becomes dull.Maybe this is a statement in itself about human nature when faced with atrocities over which we have no control, like the heavy descriptive prose in American Psycho, but like AP, the point had been made quite a while before anything came of it.However, you can see I ve given it four stars, and this is because the last hundred pages are truly excellent And the book absolutely stands up as an entertaining and worthwhile read because of it Slug through the middle and the rewards are worth the wait
