American Psycho

Novel, Satire by Bret Easton Ellis

Blurb

Avec son sourire carnassier et ses costumes chics, Patrick Bateman est l'incarnation du golden boy new-yorkais. Mais, à la nuit tombante, il laisse libre cours à sa démence. En bon serial killer, Patrick viole, torture et tue. Dans un monde lisse de tout sentiment, jusqu'où l'horreur peut-elle aller ? "Vingt ans après sa publication, American Psycho continue de congeler toute la littérature du siècle suivant. American Psycho n'a pas seulement prédit l'Apocalypse : ce texte est l'Apocalypse de notre temps." Frédéric Beigbeder, Premier bilan après l'ApocalypseTraduit de l'anglais par Alain Defosse

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.
