When Lucy Brennan, a Miami Beach personal-fitness trainer, disarms a gunman chasing two frightened homeless men, the police and the breaking-news cameras are not far behind and, within hours, Lucy is a media hero. The solitary eye-witness is the depressed and overweight Lena Sorensen, who becomes obsessed with Lucy and signs up as her client - though she seems more interested in the trainer's body than her own. When the two women find themselves more closely aligned, and can't stop thinking about the sex lives of Siamese twins, the real problems start.

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.
