In American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis imaginatively explores the incomprehensible depths of madness and captures the insanity of violence in our time or any other. Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront. Described by Publishers Weekly as "a grisly, gritty gross-out (about) the cool yuppie lifestyle of Patrick Bateman, 26, whose avocation is torturing and dismembering his female victims and festooning his apartment with their body parts, " this book by the author of Less Than Zero is sure to cause a stir.

I couldn't put this book down until I had finished it. This is all that I can really say that is positive about the book, as the sections about violence were horribly disturbing, the sections about fashion incomprehensible, the sections about musical artists totally out of place, and the sections about the narrator's dating life as boring as they are to the narrator. ...but I couldn't put it down.
