Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho is a true 20th...”

Written on: 16/02/2005 by cosmo (1 review written)

Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho is a true 20th century classic. It is the tale of Patrick Bateman, who is a superficial yuppie, hung up on perfecting his physique, designer clothes, earning money, beautiful women and appalling music (there's chapters on the brilliance of such artists as Phil Collins and Huey Lewis & the News). Patrick is completely caught up in the greed and self-indulgence of the decade and also happens to be a deranged killer who likes to murder people in increasingly brutal ways. This book is told from his point of view and charts his slow descent into madness. It's also a brutal indictment against the materialistic values of the decade and the superficiality of popular culture. Plus, despite its gruesomeness, it's actually fairly amusing, and, unlike most of Bret Easton Ellis' other books, is fairly linear and simple to follow.
