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.

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 is more deserving of a thesis paper than of a measly little review on Goodreads.

(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...

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....

This book is TRUE. I live on an island of bankers, investment brokers and trust company lawyers and all of them are drunken, mad psychopaths with Jack Nicholson laughs and a propensity for getting into a lot of trouble at weekends.
They drink and they snort and they screw and they sail and they ma...

Loved this book. One to give me a book hangover. Didn't want it to end.
Always loved the film and the book is really not far off.
I felt the referencing to brand names was a bit OTT but I totally understand why it was being done. Just bored me after a while and I just skimmed over those descriptio...

I don't usually bother giving negative reviews here, but I feel it's time to nail my colours to the mast and identify a few problematic titles. Problem #1: American Psycho.
It's funny how many people qualify their glowing reviews of this book with the words 'I didn't enjoy it but...,' as if it con...

This book blew me away. First of all, you have to be prepared to be let into the mind of a psychopath. That entails more than murder, which a lot of people reviewing this book completely miss. Watch out for these two types of brainless reviews. "Its worth the boring stuff for the violence". or "I...
