To the reader, he is initially just another self-absorbed upper-class asshole who lives a very extravagant, promiscuous and drug-fueled lifestyle.

Patrick Bateman is a misogynistic piece of crap. Boredom – way more than the graphically americno and disturbing – is unforgivable to me. Yes, the title does clearly suggests psychotic events will be found in the book but I wasn’t ready for the extreme graphic descriptions of brutality depicted.

I need to reread the book to give a deeper review, and to mark it as I said above. I could never imagine psicopatx sane individual doing these things. The truly distressing thing, though, was checking a few clips on Youtube.

Ellis alternates between excessively black humour and a more tragic kind of honesty. Before every nasty killing, Bateman goes on a diatribe about the music of one o When a book sticks with you, you know it is powerful. Bret Easton Ellis is an incredible writer, bringing us into this highly deviant mind.
