This is not a novel, it is fashion magazines being read aloud. I managed to get through about 2 hours before I just had to turn it off. I was very disappointed.
I entered this book expecting to find some great satire, remarkable writing, and a lot of violence. I'd read Ellis's Rules of Attraction earlier and found it very enjoyable, but with American Psycho, all that seemed to be conveyed was boring lists and repetitive routines and details.
I get what the author was shooting for, but—with me, at least—I wasn't convinced that his work hit the mark.
Ellis has talent. I don't see this as his best, but that doesn't mean prospective readers should disregard him entirely.
I have read some sick twisted things before but in my opinion this went WAY too far. I would be afraid of the person that could even think of some of the things in this book much less write them down and publish them. The author will never date MY daughter. There is something wrong with someone who can think like this.
Inless you are really interested in graphic descriptions of sex, rape, brutality, and murder then this book isn't for you. If you like that kind of filth then read on. As for me I choose to move on to something more worth my time
That's all I want to know. I know they don't but for a book this utterly offending and bad book-I won't call it a novel-I think they should not only give us our money back plus give us 5 credits for free.
I've always enjoyed this book and its message of superficiality, excess and feeling trapped in ones life while being totally unconnected to and constantly annoyed by your "friends."
The reader left something to be desired. His female voices all sound the same and don't even express the characteristics the author has stated for them. In addition, at least 3 male characters seem to have the same voice.
Worth the listen.
This book will put you to sleep, it gets bogged down constantly with boring details that don't seem to have any direct bearing on the story. I found it dry and hard to follow.
