[ Pdf American Psycho µ womens PDF ] by Bret Easton Ellis ✓ 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 Descriptions were OTT.
Dark Masterpiece Love the scene with the business cards Both film book.
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 human emotion, and obsessed with things, reeling off designer name after designer name, presenting what could be seen as Ellis criticism of modern society and consumerism.
Not shocking fact 2 This book is extremely graphic and violent.
Well, it is a book about a serial killer I didn t expect flowers and happiness I should warn you if you re the kind of pers Patrick Bateman Is Twenty Six And He Works On Wall Street, He Is Handsome, Sophisticated, Charming And Intelligent He Is Also A Psychopath Taking Us To Head On Collision With America S Greatest Dream And Its Worst Nightmare American Psycho Is Bleak, Bitter, Black Comedy About A World We All Recognise But Do Not Wish To Confront 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 chopping up women with the occasional man thrown in, but all the lavish descriptions with rats and nail guns and so on are just for the ladies I don t think people can tell what s misogynistic and what isn t any Here s a real life anecdot American Psycho is an energetic display of brutal writing It s without a doubt the most gruesome thing I ve read It s horrifying and truly shocking at times I had to put the book down on several occasions whilst I recovered from the graphic nature of some of it So, a word of warning, if you don t like blood don t even bother picking this one up It s full of mutilations and brutal murder But the violence was so completely necessary in all its terribleness because it captures something very disturbing about the world A question, if you will how many people truly know you I m not talking about the you that everybody sees, but the real you Not many, I m sure We only ever truly know ourselves because we are the only one who has access to our thoughts and hidden desires Bateman knows this and he uses it to his advantagethere is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstract THIS IS FULL OF SPOILERS FULL TO THE BRIM THESE ARE SOME MUSINGS THAT IN NO WAY RESEMBLE A BOOK REVIEW YOU CAN read IT, BUT I AM TELLING YOU STRAIGHT UP THERE WILL BE SPOILERS actually, it s not that bad.
paul bryant recently reviewed revised his review of this book hi, paul bryant and i read it and the dozens of intelligent remarks his negative review sparked,both pro and anti this book, and there isn t anything i can add to the discussion that hasn t already been said by people far wiser than little old me, but because the review made me think about this book, i decided to add my two cents and that s all it is just some thoughts about a book i haven t read in years, but remember really liking and feel, for some reason, compelled to defend the assertions that this book is misogynistic demand a response patrick 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 make loads of money and every now and again some of them disappear never to be heard of again The women, the secretaries and admin staff come out from the UK husband hunting but quickly find they are the rare prey of these mad psycho partiers and they too tend to disappear.
Deported or murdered YOU decide view spoiler The investment bankers from the Swiss VP Bank were by far the worst Going drinking with them usually en
