    Ah Bret, I loved you so, so long ago For anyone who has not had the mixture of pleasure, horror, disgust and loathing which is generated by the reading of American Psycho, then you should probably start here to ease your way into the dismissive, violent and destructive world which Ellis describes I read American Psycho in one long teenage school day under desks during class behind a wall at break on the bus home and was amazed that this man was actually a fully functioning author and not a Ah Bret, I loved you so, so long ago For anyone who has not had the mixture of pleasure, horror, disgust and loathing which is generated by the reading of American Psycho, then you should probably start here to ease your way into the dismissive, violent and destructive world which Ellis describes I read American Psycho in one long teenage school day under desks during class behind a wall at break on the bus home and was amazed that this man was actually a fully functioning author and not a psychopathic murderer who, I would happily have believed, penned his most famous of novels from the constraints of a padded room by narrating his tale into a dictophone after he was deemed too dangerous to be given a pen.To compare The Informers to American Psycho i...

    Bret Easton Ellis is of my biggest influences as an author and while this book isn t quite on a level with the exceptional American Psycho, which is probably his masterpiece, it is still excellent and well worth reading.The way Bret Easton Ellis captures the mindset of a certain element of society in the 1980s and pushes it to it s logical conclusion is very much something I was trying to emulate in Drug Gang, with my chosen time period being the early 2000s.This collection of stories set in Los Bret Easton E...

    Style over substance perhaps, but there s so much style that there s still a lot of substance for those paying attention.This one was a re read I only have 700 books I haven t opened yet but I just had to come back to this one NaNoWriMo is coming up and I ve had an idea running around my mind for years that could use a structure similar to this one So I combined research with pleasure and got stuck in to the Ellis novel that I remembered most fondly from a decade ago Amazingly it was even be Style over substance perhaps, but there s so much style that there s still a lot o...

    the way these short stories intertwine with one another is purely brilliant i know a lot of people tend to not enjoy ellis style of writing, but i think that the joy in his writing is all within the way everything is so disconnected and connected, all at the same time.no other author can write end on end about seemingly useless facts, and still have use for them i know this sounds extremely contradicting, but he does the same thing throughout his other writings.american psycho is a good examp the way these short stories intertwine with one another is purely brilliant i know a lot of people tend to not enjoy ellis style of writing, but i think that the joy in his writing is all within the ...

    While revisiting Ellis s debatable best work , American Psycho, I found myself slightly disappointed On first reading it, I was in a particularly bitter frame of mind where the violence and decadency really appealed to me Reading it again, some years later, I guess I wasn t so angry with life, and so I found less enjoyment with Bateman s horrific lifestyle Like, I still gave it four stars and will always appreciate that novel sick and disturbing as it is but I was also less forgiving t While revisiting Ellis s debatable best work , American Psycho, I found myself slightly disappointed On first reading it, I was in a particularly bitter frame of mind where the violence and decadency really appealed to me Reading it again, some years later, I guess I wasn t so angry with life, and so I found less enjoyment with Bateman s horrific lifestyle Like, I still gave it four stars and will always appreciate that novel sick and disturbing as it is but I was also less forgiving towards the constant though satirical details in consumerism, fashion, food tastes and body products At the other end, I found myself less sickly amused,just sickened, by the agonising torture scenes I always went around smugly asking those who liked the film Yeah, well hav...
