Read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Í Bret Easton Ellis Bret Easton Ellis Í 9 Summary Review ô American Psycho 109 Utor ha escogido un camino arriesgado Patrick Bateman el protagonista no es un rebelde ni un paria; Patrick es un joven de éxito ue sin embargo también es capaz de violar torturar y asesinar Como dijo Fay Wel. This book shocked me Though not for any of the reasons I might have expectedNot shocking fact 1 This book is about a psychopathYes how very astute of me I hadn t seen the movie before I picked American Psycho up but most people who know a bit about books know a bit about Patrick Bateman Despite this book not being very old Bateman has a certain infamy amongst fictional serial killers and psychopaths He is so wholly devoid of morality completely disconnected from reality and human emotion and obsessed with things reeling off designer name after designer name presenting what could be seen as Ellis criticism of modern society and consumerismNot shocking fact 2 This book is extremely graphic and violentWell it is a book about a serial killer I didn t expect flowers and happiness I should warn you if you re the kind of person who gets sueamish easily or are upset by graphically violent and disturbing scenes this isn t the book for you Bateman describes in a detached first person narrative each grisly atrocity he commits He is 100% sociopathic so unmoved by what he does and so immune to any plea for mercy I imagine her naked murdered maggots burrowing feasting on her stomach tits blackened by cigarette burns Libby eating this corpse out then I clear my throat This is just the stuff I feel okay including without spoiler tagsNot shocking fact 3 Patrick Bateman is a misogynistic piece of crapBut I don t think that necessarily means the book or the author is Or maybe yeah Bret Easton Ellis could be a raging misogynist but that s really not the point I took from the book Bateman most definitely harbors no feelings or sympathy towards women he deconstructs the women he meets piece by piece until they re reduced to just a sum of boobs ass and vagina His psychopathic nature is not limited to women but his absolute and unending disdain for the female sex is apparent from the very beginning Though he s a psychopath so I m not sure what some people were expectingThe misogyny debate about this book greatly interests me If there is one thing probably above everything else that I can t stand in books it must be the positive depiction of sexism slut shaming andor abusive relationships But I ve never thought that just showing the existence of something as part of a story euates to endorsing it I suppose American Psycho might promote misogyny in the same way that any violent art might promote violence And I always remember a conversation I had with this guy way back in high school We all had to read weekly news stories every Friday morning in our form rooms and one week there was this piece about cheat dating sites As in sites that encouraged married people to have affairs with others looking for affairs I remember being pretty horrified and saying to this guy I really don t think that should even be allowed it just encourages people to cheat And he shrugged and said The way I see it if you re the kind of person who s going to stumble across that site and think woah what a great idea there probably wasn t much hope for you anyway And you know I think he was rightThe 1 most shocking fact about this book It was soooo boringYeah I wasn t shocked by the violence the psychopath the graphic language or the misogyny But it never once occurred to me that a book which promised so much horror could have me wanting to skim read with boredomThe fact is I found being inside Bateman s emotionally detached mind really repetitive and dull after a while It was impossible to form any kind of emotional connection with him and because of the first person narration it was also impossible to form much of an emotional connection with anything or anyone else in the novel Secondly the really gritty stuff doesn t happen until the second half of the book the first half is filled with Bateman s constant descriptions of designer clothes his misogyny filled rants with his almost eually repulsive friends and his completely unerotic porn fuelled masturbation sessions By the time things got nasty I was already losing interestBoredom way than the graphically violent and disturbing is unforgivable to meBlog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr

Read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Í Bret Easton Ellis Bret Easton Ellis Í 9 Summary Review ô American Psycho 109 Dom American Psycho es de alguna forma el oscuro complemento de La hoguera de las vanidades por cuanto descubre auellos puntos negros de la vida de los supuestos triunfadores ue la novela de Tom Wolfe uiso obvi. there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman some kind of abstraction but there is no real me only an entity something illusory and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable I simply am not there It is hard for me to make sense on any given level Myself is fabricated an aberration I am a noncontingent human being My personality is sketchy and unformed my heartlessness goes deep and is persistent My conscience my pity my hopes disappeared a long time ago probably at Harvard if they ever did exist There are no barriers to cross All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane the vicious and the evil all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed I still though hold onto one single bleak truth no one is safe nothing is redeemed Yet I am blameless Each model of human behavior must be assumed to have some validity Is evil something you are Or is it something you do I let Keeten finish putting in that uote before I popped him in the head with his own tire thumper Oblivious fucking bastard so caught up in words that he didn t even hear the soft tread of the boogeyman You want to talk to him Well fuck you You ve got me Anyway he s a little tied up right now Hardy har har har If you are worried about him you should be For now I feel under control I washed down a handful of Valium with a couple of three finger pours of JB to create a euphoria of calm before I popped the lock on his sliding glass door I m looking at this bum Is this how normal people dress He s wearing black Timberland boots faded Land s End jeans a crimson red Out of Print T shirt of the Odyssey and a purple wrinkled Territory Ahead button down shirt Homeless people in New York dress with better class than this guy Fashion is everything well and great hair products Here s an example of a guy who knows how to dress I must confess I killed him I mean just having great taste in clothing is never going to be enough to save anyonefromme Paul Owen walks in wearing a cashmere one button sports jacket tropical wool flannel slacks a button down tab collared shirt by Ronaldus Shamask but it s really the tie blue and black and red and yellow bold strips from Andrew Fezz by Zanzarra that impresses me Or how about this fine description of a hardbody who has a fine eye for great clothes You have to love those sculpted bodies of these rich bitches who have all the time in the world to turn their figures into works of art She s wearing a red purple and black hand knitted mohair and wool sweater from Koos Van Den Akker Couture and slacks from Anne Klein with suede open toe pumps For this visitation to the land of cows I still dressed nice even though I m running the risk of getting blood on some very very fine cloth I m wearing a six button double breasted chalk striped wool suit and a patterned silk tie both by Louis Boston and a cotton oxford cloth shirt by Luciano Barbera I smell good too I just checked in the mirror and my hair looks fucking amazing I should buy this guy a nice suit I ll put it on my platinum American Express card The rubes will pogo stick around the store when I bring that out of my Jesus he needs a real haircut too I ask him jokingly if he cuts his own hair He nods his head Unfuckingbelievable So why am I here in Kansas you might ask I m choosing to make that a bigger uestion because I m holding the tire thumper Haha Well my friends I am drawn this way I come out of the sickest depths of Bret Easton Ellis s demented mind In other words I m created in the image of God Who am IWho am II m you We are marginally different but the rage that is in me is in you Maybe you haven t tapped into it yet but you may when you least expect it I do understand that we may see different things in clouds for instance When we look up at the clouds she sees an island a puppy dog Alaska a tulip I see but don t tell her a Gucci money clip an ax a woman cut in two a large puffy white puddle of blood that spreads across the sky dripping over the city onto Manhattan I understand I m a bit depraved than you are but I m wealthy I m incredibly handsome I m a fashion intelligencia I m way smarter than you I have a larger responsibility to approach the world with a greater degree of honesty This is no time for the innocent Everyone deserves to die especially this moron reviewer who thought he was going to write a fucking review of my fucking book today WRONG Look at this passage he noted If she likes me only for my muscles the heft of my cock then she s a shallow bitch But a physically superior near perfect looking shallow bitch and that can override anything I don t like him making notes about Courtney I rip aside the duct tape on his mouth which had to fucking hurt and asked him WTF I was going to make a point about you complaining about the shallowness of what Courtney liked best about you but you are a hypocrite because what you like about her is just as shallow as what she likes about you Plus you would need depth for her to appreciate something else about you Can you believe that I m writing it just like he said it then I bash him with the club a couple of times I think I heard something snap Fuck I m really trying not to lose control here I have to put the tape back on his mouth because he is hollering with too much volume Whimpering is fine even encouraged but there is no sound proofing on the walls so we can t be screaming I really much prefer the way women scream The tenor of their voices trips the light fantastic in my head How many people have I killed Well too many to count It is amazing what you can get away with when you have as much money as I do and look like I do People are begging to spend time with me It seems to me like they are really begging to be dismembered burned with acid evisceratedWe do have a few things that we need to get straight and then I need to head back to New York I ve got some video tapes that need to be returned and the late fees are fucking outrageous Huey Lewis and the News is the greatest American rock bandever Indisputable I notice that Keeten has the greatest hits which earns him a painful bash to the knee You have to buy the complete albums The rest of their songs are as important and fantastic as their hits Second Donald J Trump is a genius I admire him than anyone else on the planet It takes a psycho to recognize a psycho As far as I know he is keeping it together but I feel a kinship with him a calling in the blood Haha did he ever pull the Art of the Deal on all of youOkay so you see that I am fair I let Keeten participate in the writing of this review but I just couldn t let him do it alone I was sitting in my apartment gazing with fascination at my favorite vagina the one with the Hermes blue ribbon tied around it and thinking I m not going to let this hayseed from Kansas write a review about meI m thinking about taking one of his fingers to nibble on during the flight back so maybe I can get to New York without murdering anyone You d give up a finger if it meant saving some other poor innocent life wouldn t you KeetenSo you think you want to read this book HA Ellis the sick bastard did not spare the grotesue descriptions of my activities In fact I read the damn book and even I was starting to yawn a bit through all the blood and mayhem I think he made his point about what kind of depraved monster a true creature of God I am WAY before he uit relating yet another senseless death And yes I know they are senseless because not one of my victims has uelled the beast Blood only begets blood Don t hate me I m just a product of the entitlement system I appreciate it that you all let me be me Your ability to live with letting my madness run rampant means you are actually insane than I am Something for all of you to keep in mindPatrick Bateman is still out here Yes I m alive and frankly very fit looking The tanning bed is a wonderful investment I bought the same one as Donald If you have a hardbody come to New York Look me up I ll take you out on the town and show you something you ve never seen beforeI see from the notes here on the desk that Keeten is going to call this a Masterpiece He isn t looking so sure any He s a bit gray and some blood has trickled out from beneath the duct tape I used the tape from his garage It obviously isn t as good as the brand I normally like to use Sigh If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

Read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Í Bret Easton Ellis Bret Easton Ellis Í 9 Summary Review ô American Psycho 109 Esta novela de Bret Easton Ellis constituye una de las críticas más feroces ue un escritor norteamericano ha hecho a su propio país una sociedad autocomplaciente y orgullosa de si misma Para su denuncia el a. UnholyShiteThis may be the only book I ve rated 5 stars that I have NO intention of EVER reading again Ever After finishing this I was forced to wait until my brain had cooled down and re congealed before I could cogitate sufficiently to put my experience with this novel into words And yet even after almost 36 hours have ticked by the only word that keeps bubbling up to the surface of my consciousness isWOWin both the good and not so good vareity At first I d thought about trying to do a tongue inside the cheek review by imitating the narrator and describing what designers I was wearing while typing this review and what brand of shampoo and shaving cream I used this morning However the I thought about the I realized I wanted to play this one straight given the profound effect the book had on me Therefore you get mostly serious Stephen today On the one hand this novel is a visceral disturbingly dark portrait of the 1980 s as a emotionally vacuous disconnected and superficial bastion of consumerism in which the people living through it became and detached from society and less and less able to emote for anyone beyond themselves In essence the book deals extensively and brilliantly with a loss of empathy The protagonist Patrick Bateman is the personification of the darkest extreme of this lack of empathy He is by definition a psychopath which has as one of its primary characteristics the inability to feel guilt remorse or empathy towards another person Patrick is outwardly charming and good mannered with all the outward indicia of normality Insidethere is NOTHING I found the beginning of the book to be very funny in a dark satirical way Almost every sentence out of Patrick s mouth included a description of a specific product brand or status symbol He didn t just reach into his wallet and pay the cabbie He opens up his Ermenegildo Zegna suit coat pulls out his Tumi calf skin wallet while seeing in the corner of his eye the Fratelli Rossetti wingtips that his friend has on and pulls out cab fare before putting the wallet back in his new black leather attache by Bottega Veneta As the narrative goes on you realize that we are seeing the world through Patrick s distorted lens and this focus on brands is simply a result of Patrick s twisted world viewIn addition to having some serious fun with the out of control consumerism of the 80 s Ellis slowly begins to reveal to us the fact that Patrick and I might add all of the people he associates with have no empathy or compassion for anyone but themselves Upon arriving at a very high end restaurant where Patrick and his friends will spend an exorbitant amount of money and barely eat any of their food Patrick casually narrates for us Outside Pastels Tim grabbed the napkin with Van Patten s final version of his carefully phrased uestion for G on it and tossed it as a bum huddling outside the restaurant feebly holding up a sloppy cardboard sign I AM HUNGRY AND HOMELESS PLEASE HELP ME No further comment is made about the scene and it is only after many similar occurrences that you begin to get the picture that is being portrayed I thought that the first half of the book was nothing short of BRILLIANT as an indictment of the period However that is not where the book ends and it s the second half of the book that while eually well written was arguably the most disturbing writing I ve ever read As the book progresses Patrick s nighttime activities become and bizarre sadistic and just plain brutal Now I ve read a lot of horror and seen my share of movie gore and while I don t enjoy slasher movies or torture porn novels I certainly have been able to deal with some very brutal images and scenes in the context of a what I read and watch Well the images and descriptions of Patrick s murders unsettled me as much as anything I have ever experienced It was not just the graphic detailed AND PROLONGED scenes of rape murder and torture not always in that order It was inner monologue of Patrick totally devoid of empathy for his victims that will probably stay with me for the rest of my life I had read reviews that the murder scenes were graphic and I was like thanks for the warning but I should be okay Well I want to say againBE WARNED it is about as disturbing as you can imagine I wanted to make sure I said that because despite my cautions above this is a book I will recommend provided people understand the level of gut wrenching depictions in the novel It s not a book to read for pleasure and it is not a book I believe I will ever open again However I do believe that this is an IMPORTANT work and will be remembered as one of the seminal novels written about the 1980 s It shines a harsh and brutal light if exaggerated for effect on a way of life and a mind set that has become over time all too familiar50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATIONthough I m likely never touching it again
