If I could give this a negative review I would. I remember when this first came out, how everyone was raving about how groundbreaking and pushing the envelope it was. Bullshit. This is sick torture ... Read full review

Hard time determining stars on this book. It is a very powerful book that really sticks with you as you read it and after you are done. This has some of the most graphic and disturbing scenes I think ... Read full review

I felt like I was reading something off 4chan really. I get the whole nihilism thing, but all and all not sure how i felt about the book, though i was amused by the rich people being rich people. Read full review

User Review  - PirateJenny - LibraryThing

I finally read it (I quite enjoy the movie). Everything I've heard about this book is wrong. It's not horrific, it's hysterical. It's a parody of Wall Street culture of the 1980s. Sure, there's ... Read full review

Damn this book is graphic! It's the 1980s and the rich keep on getting richer and the poor keep on getting poorer. Patrick Bateman is bored of his humdrum life on Wall Street. Nothing seems to excite ... Read full review
