"When Lucy Brennan, a Miami Beach personal-fitness trainer, disarms an apparently crazed gunman chasing two frightened homeless men along a deserted causeway at night, the police and the breaking-news cameras are not far behind. Within hours, Lucy becomes a hero. Her celebrity is short-lived, though: the 'crazed gunman,' turns out to be a victim of child sexual abuse and the two men are serial pedophiles. The solitary eye-witness, the depressed and overweight Lena Sorenson, thrilled by Lucy's heroism and decisiveness, becomes obsessed with the trainer and enrolls as a client at her Bodysculpt gym. It quickly becomes clear that Lena is more interested in Lucy's body than her own"--Dust jacket flap.

Great book, at times it was crass and disturbing, but it tells a good story.

It's offensive and at times repulsive, but I also laughed a lot and couldn't put it down. I recently read "Beautiful You" by Chuck Palahniuk and found the shocking storyline to be tiresome. While this one is also crass and explicit, Irvine Welsh actually has something to say about American culture although, admittedly, most readers won't enjoy how he goes about saying it.

Funny, profane and brutally satirical. Really enjoyed this one.

Could not agree more , there is only so far you can take a style of writing . At this point Welsh has stopped being engaging and funny .

Although Welsh is a good writer and I had high hopes for this book, it did not engage my interest enough to finish reading it.
