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 BastardDuring 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 'DamIt 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 ualms 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 stomachA 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 learns and about 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 acrossDespite 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 his famous novel 'Trainspotting' something which is of 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 TapewormsYou are unlikely to find a book like it

Irvine Welsh É 0 Summary

Filth by Irvine WelEn there's that nutritionally demanding and psychologically acute intestinal parasite in his gut Yes things are going badly for this utterly corrupt tribune of the law but in an Irvine Welsh novel nothing is ever so bad that it can't get a whole lot wor. There are several reasons why I will never forget this book The main reason is Bruce Robertson the main character of FilthBruce 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 filthThat 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 out Irvine Welsh to read as wellUpdate 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 feeling and sympathy for Bruce Truly the mark of a good bookthat it remains with you and continues to make you think
