    Review:

    To call this novel a thriller wouldn't be right. Yet it wouldn't be right to call it high class either. In truth it sinks lower than anything ever written, and that is what makes American Psycho, by Bret Easton Ellis, one of the most intelligent, disturbing novel in the 90's. The book follows: and makes you grow to love and hate, New York 26 year old Patrick Bateman, psychotic murderer and brother of Sean Bateman, who, during the 80s, went on a coke fueled killing spree... or so you think. The sadness of the book lies not in its murder victims, its rising body count, ritualistic murders, torturous, gratutious sex, or overabundant profanity, but instead in the fact that you are faced with a man who you feel such sympathy for. .

    Throughout the streets of Manhattan, Ellis' Psycho takes you on a tour of a horrific American Elite, making you wonder who is truely the monster. He lives his own sick American Dream, which, in the chaos of his world, almost makes sense, and you grow to like him more and more... and then the graphic violence begins. Horriffied by it, you can't help but read, mystified, as the world passes you by. All of it drawing to the true crescendo, in which you are left, afriad, in the dust, wondering if it was all real or not.

    American Psycho is a successful, sexual violence thriller, whose controversy seems only set to increase.

    Praise:

    "American Psycho is a beautifully controlled, careful, important novel. . . . The novelist's function is to keep a running tag on the progress of the culture; and he's done it brilliantly. . . . A seminal book." --Fay Weldon, Washington Post[/TD]
