    UnholyShite This may be the only book I ve rated 5 stars that I have NO intention of EVER reading again Ever After finishing this, I was forced to wait until my brain had cooled down and re congealed before I could cogitate sufficiently to put my experience with this novel into words And yet, even after almost 36 hours have ticked by, the only word that keeps bubbling up to the surface of my consciousness isWOWin both the good and not so good vareity At first,

    I actually read this book a few years ago, but I stumbled across the Goodreads reviews of it, and felt I needed to add my voice, because it is such a difficult piece of lit in a lot of ways,and honestly, it probably isdeserving of a thesis paper than of a measly little review on Goodreads American Psycho is a brilliant book Genius It will no doubt deservingly be remembered as Bret Easton Ellis s masterpiece, his tour de force of sadist misanthropy I effing HATED it A

    another update incorporating comments about BEE s latest novel apparently he s still at it Before we start a quote by Norman Mailer about Bret Easton Ellis How one wishes this writer was without talent People think the pages and pages of descriptions of hacking and chopping up women are ironic Well, in one sense they are, but in another sense they aren t People who like this book should ask themselves why they want to read pages and pages of descriptions of hacking and chop

    This book shocked me Though not for any of the reasons I might have expected.Not shocking fact 1 This book is about a psychopath.Yes, how very astute of me I hadn t seen the movie before I picked American Psycho up, but most people who know a bit about books know a bit about Patrick Bateman Despite this book not being very old, Bateman has a certain infamy amongst fictional serial killers and psychopaths He is so wholly devoid of morality, completely disconnected from reality and

    there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable I simply am not there.

    I ve forgotten who I had lunch with earlier, and evenimportant, where Patrick Bateman is handsome, well educated, intelligent He works by day on Wall Street, earning a fortune to complement the one he was born with His nights he spends in ways we cannot begin to fathom.Where to begin first of all, let me preface this review by giving a trigger warning for almost every possible trigger you can think of rape, animal abuse, torture this book is not for the faint of heart This book I ve forgotten who I had lunch with e
