Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Dead Men's Trousers by Irvine Welsh, read by Tam Dean Burn.

Mark Renton is finally a success. An international jet-setter, he now makes significant money managing DJs, but the constant travel, airport lounges, soulless hotel rooms and broken relationships have left him dissatisfied with his life. He's then rocked by a chance encounter with Frank Begbie, from whom he'd been hiding for years after a terrible betrayal and the resulting debt. But the psychotic Begbie appears to have reinvented himself as a celebrated artist and - much to Mark's astonishment - doesn't seem interested in revenge.

Sick Boy and Spud, who have agendas of their own, are intrigued to learn that their old friends are back in town, but when they enter the bleak world of organ harvesting, things start to go so badly wrong. Lurching from crisis to crisis, the four men circle each other, driven by their personal histories and addictions, confused, angry - so desperate that even Hibs winning the Scottish Cup doesn't really help. One of these four will not survive to the end of this audiobook. Which one of them is wearing Dead Men's Trousers?

Fast and furious, scabrously funny and weirdly moving, this is a spectacular return of the crew from Trainspotting.

Another master piece from Irvin welsh

Would you listen to Dead Men's Trousers again? Why?

I love Irvine Welsh books and have read them all was gutted when I finished this one left me wanting more which is a good thing

Who was your favorite character and why?

To be honest Tam Dean Burn as its him who brings the characters to life its he who deserves a mention- -constructive criticism Irvine welsh has a habit of overusing super long words when a simpler synonym would suffice I have to write the words down and look them up later.

What does Tam Dean Burn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Tam Dean burn for prime minister simply brilliant

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Lots of smiles brought to my face

Any additional comments?

cant wait until the next book

Laugh Out Loud Brilliant

This has to be one of the best written, funniest, rudest and most superbly read novels in all of Audible's library. It is certainly not for the faint hearted but I loved it. The writing, the narration and the cast of characters are amazing. 'Sick Boy' is just magnificent and the duplicitous old killer dog artist Frank Begby is slyly awesome. I'd love to see this as a film. 5 * at the least.

Hilarious!!

This is the funniest book I have ever listened to!
A great story about a group of 50ish ‘lads’ getting back in touch. This was well delivered by the narrator. Spot on! I would definitely recommend this book.

Not for the easily offended

Hard to listen to at first due to the swearing but one soon gets used to it.
Scots folk will easily identify with the characters
