Been on a tour? Got a view on any manifestation of Trainspotting – the book, the play, the film? Got attitude or questions about my book?
Just fill in your comments below. It would be good to hear from you!
I will be sending Tim a list of all the books I like so he can prepare tours on them for me. Great craic.
If you\'re into Trainspotting, either the book, the film or both, this tour will be for you. I thought I knew both stories before I took this tour but I had no idea how many layers there are. The geographical, historical and political metaphors just blew me away:c) Don\'t miss out on this one:c)
Hi Tim Just a quick note re: historyfest.co.uk/events/ - just a week to go! 13-30 November all around Edinburgh.
It was an incredibly insightful walking tour, offering a firsthand look at the Trainspotting world through the eyes of its characters, its city\'s history, its author, and as fans. It was truly one of the highlights of my trip. The tour is a must for any fan.
The best tour I´ve done in the city! it was very interesting. If you like the film or the book you have to do this tour!! looking forward to reading your book Tim!! Thanks and as Alba said keep working in this fantastic project!!
It has been the best tour I have done in all my trips abroad. Its accuracy and emotion make of the tour an unforgetable one. I could only say Thank you!!!And please keep working on this amazing project 😉 Alba
i did the tour a couple of years ago, i never normally go to hibbee land, but this was interesting. You never let on you were a chaplin, big man!
A Trainspotting expert who is also a chaplain?! There can\'t be many of them!
Helen\'s right but we\'re missing somebody here. My granny had her wedding ring stolen by some wee toe-rag just like Spud. Just cos welsh doesn\'t show us the damage done by him, everybody loves him. Sick Boy and Begbie are professional bastards, but Spud causes just as much grief.
Aye, but you\'re a man, Joshau. Would I rather be pimped out by Sick Boy or beaten up by Begbie? The answer is they\'re both bastards, only difference between them is one of them is going to end up in prison and the other isnae.
Question: Sick Boy or Begbie: which one is nastier? Sick Boy, by far. Simon is a child negligent and a delusional sociopath. He is also an amoral drug-addict with no sense of honour, and a cold, calculating bastard. Begbie might be wrath, but he has a code of ethics.
I had a fabulous time on the tour! It illuminated so many parts of the book for me, and showed me Leith like I\'d never seen it before. Would definitely recommend!
I had the BEST time on my tour!
