REVIEW ✓ American Psycho Bret Easton Ellis á 1 REVIEW REVIEW American Psycho Patrick Bateman is twenty six and he works on Wall Street he is handsome sophisticated charming and intellig jason an old high school buddy knew i was in manhattan for a few nights and asked to meet up for dinner fuck it i m a sentimental guy and it s nice to catch up even with a wall street douchebag jason told me that lisa another old friend would be joining here s the conversational breakdown at dinner 20 minutes comparing features on their new blackberries40 minutes the new zagat guide and the city s best restaurants 20 minutes glib commentary on people we grew up with lisa leaves and jason asks me to walk a few blocks and check out his new apartment fucking sick pad bro sick unable to deal with any of this shit without backup i text the address to bryan and john they meet up and we sit in jason s super large super minimalist picture window overlooking the city apartment shooting the shit and drinking johnnie walker blue label jason is uickly bored and calls over two hookers he hits the bedroom with the cuter of the two me john and bryan sit at the living room table and drink blue label with the other one five minutes passes and we hear this from jason s bedroomjason screams get off get the fuck off we re all wondering what it is exactly she is on that he wants her off of and if we should go in there and see if everything s ok and then again jason get the fuck off hooker shut up the door busts open and the hooker storms out with a very angry jason behind her ranting that she took a phone call while giving him head and carried on a conversation while licking his balls so it s a moment of hilarious revelation when we realize that what jason wanted her to get off of of course was her phone phone girl looks to blue label girl you ready to go blue label girl you get paid phone girl nods jason angry you re not going anywhere i fucking paid for two girls all we got was a half the girls pause and give us the once over i imagine to gauge if we re the kinda guys to get violent or to let em just walk out with jason s money they re professionals and know their shit they walk out jason lamely chides us for not getting his back me bryan and john go down to von for a beer i recently re read american psycho only a few weeks after returning from jason s second wedding in a vineyard in napa they wouldn t allow any alcohol other than their own wine to be drunk so everyone compensated with dimebags and eightballs and i spent hours talking to all these coked out shitbags and yeah i guess i was a coked out shitbag but in an entirely different non patrick batemanesue way here s the wedding conversational breakdown new gadgets iphones stereos flatscreens cars we are at the top of the system because we are the smartest and most shrewd and if obama is going to regulate us and put money in the hands of the poor we will be forced to prey on the poor good job obama you just fucked the poor in a way bush never could have is jay z the new sinatra vacation spots st barts maui etc can we get coke you know how much money greg has fucking sick bro you know he took a fucking private helicopter here right jason s stepsister is kinda hot you think i can fuck hereaston ellis s book isn t really much of an exaggeration what it is controlled hilarious horrible tragic honest and he employs some great little warholian tricks whereas andy lined up pictures of mao marilyn minestrone easton ellis clobbers us with a uick repetition of interwoven passive voiced flattened out sentences about daytime television anal rape and fashion tips to accent his truly mad book but the big uestion is american psycho a book that hates women i guess I mean it s about and for a culture that hates women no now i don t really wanna defend the book against these charges fun to wonder what those who view american psycho as woman hating or anti feminist make of the dozens hundreds of panty sniffing television shows movies graphic novels books and video games that blanket pop culture consider as a mild example Law Order SVUhere we have a show in which every episode is about an underage girl raped or a coma victim raped or an old woman raped written shot and ingested as titillating panty sniffing nonsense less offensive because it takes itself so seriously because one of the cops is a woman or because it s able to take a preposterous and unrealistic moral standpoint in punishing the crimecriminal by having them jailed or killed or in those rare occasions when the rapist isn t caught we re given a profound poignant important commentary on violence and crime and the justiceblahfuckingblahor do CSI SVU COLD CASE etc get a pass because they re low art light entertainment not taken seriously the shit s backwards yoto be totally honest i have a hard time seeing how one views as so many do american psycho as woman hating or anti woman or anti feminist i suspect that easton ellis is so good at what he does his depiction of violence so visceral excessive and demented that it literally pushes people to a point in which they must either reduce the book to a commentary on society and consumerism and capitalism ugh or to the point at which the excess drowns out any point easton ellis imagines he s makingand then there s a complaint best made by David Foster WallaceI think it s a kind of black cynicism about today s world that Ellis and certain others depend on for their readership Look if the contemporary condition is hopelessly shitty insipid materialistic emotionally retarded sadomasochistic and stupid then I or any writer can get away with slapping together stories with characters who are stupid vapid emotionally retarded which is easy because these sorts of characters reuire no development With descriptions that are simply lists of brand name consumer products Where stupid people say insipid stuff to each other If what s always distinguished bad writing flat characters a narrative world that s cliched and not recognizably human etc is also a description of today s world then bad writing becomes an ingenious mimesis of a bad world If readers simply believe the world is stupid and shallow and mean then Ellis can write a mean shallow stupid novel that becomes a mordant deadpan commentary on the badness of everything Look man we d probably most of us agree that these are dark times and stupid ones but do we need fiction that does nothing but dramatize how dark and stupid everything is In dark times the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements of what s human and magical that still live and glow despite the times darkness Really good fiction could have as dark a worldview as it wished but it d find a way both to depict this world and to illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it You can defend Psycho as being a sort of performative digest of late eighties social problems but it s no than thatwhile i find his stance admirable and elegantly stated there s so so so much i disagree with here i guess it all comes down to an ear drum shattering NO i do not believe that in dark times the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements i believe that could be a definition of good art but not the definition norman mailer who tried and failed to create an american psycho type book with his an american dream complains that easton ellis offers no alternative to the flat insipid life of patrick bateman DFW and mailer seem to suggest that we need two things from art1 we need to follow a traditional model of literature which presents the good contrasted against the bad ie tolstoy dickens etc an art which offers an alternative morality a way out a CPR something better this is of course reactionary nonsense what s good for leo charlie dave or norm ain t necessarily good for the gander2 we need a representation of the good in our art to show the reader an alternative or a means to break free bullshit while orwell needed a winston smith in order to achieve the intended effect of 1984 i cannot conceive of an american psycho with a moral voice the moral voice comes not from the narrator or characters within the novel but from the reader herself and look most of the shit i dig tries to do just this illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it finding a means to live with integrity in a world of shit is an underlying theme in most of the shit i respond to andor create but again this does not mean that it is the author s job or the creator of good art to proceed along those lines in fact what i most appreciate about easton ellis is his refusal to trace over pre defined linesas helpful at times as it might be to read litcrit and reviews which approach the novel as a kind of book shaped container meant to convey certain ideas standpoints or commentaries as a reader for me at least it s a killer deadly american psycho is a great book in that yes there s lots of serious shit going on in there that lends itself to term papers academic essays and the like and yes it succeeds wonderfully in defining a particular point in american history but also because it transcends all that it creates here goes my generalization as does all good art the ineffable feeling only able to be expressed through that particular work no other contemporary writer except perhaps delillo at his best is able to infuse a work with such dread the dread that easton ellis creates in this book goes far beyond DFW s simple assertion that american psycho does nothing but dramatize how dark and stupid everything is transcendence through dread baby Defect knew i was in manhattan for a

REVIEW ✓ American Psycho Bret Easton Ellis á 1 REVIEW REVIEW American Psycho Ent He is also a psychopath Taking us to head on collision with America's greatest dream and its worst night 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 Manuel

Bret Easton Ellis á 1 REVIEW

REVIEW ✓ American Psycho Bret Easton Ellis á 1 REVIEW REVIEW American Psycho Mare American Psycho is bleak bitter black comedy about a world we all recognise but do not wish to confront American Psycho is an energetic display of brutal writing It s without a doubt the most gruesome thing I ve read It s horrifying and truly shocking at times I had to put the book down on several occasions whilst I recovered from the graphic nature of some of it So a word of warning if you don t like blood don t even bother picking this one up It s full of mutilations and brutal murder But the violence was so completely necessary in all its terribleness because it captures something very disturbing about the world A uestion if you will how many people truly know you I m not talking about the you that everybody sees but the real you Not many I m sure We only ever truly know ourselves because we are the only one who has access to our thoughts and hidden desires Bateman knows this and he uses it to his advantage 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 Nobody knows him He appears to be a conformist blending comfortably into society and all its stupid materialistic aspirations He is very well aware of the problems society faces His speech at the start of the book is a convincing argument though none of his friends sat around the dinner table are willing to listen to him and address a real problem They are too materialistic and self absorbed to consider anything beyond their own lives They simply carry on with their conversation as if he never spoke thus he continues on with his own destructive behaviour and slowly becomes and trapped repressed and angry I think he was however only ever probing them for a response to know how much he can get away with The book is a heavy critiue on consumerism and the ridiculous nature of it Everybody is obsessed with the latest brands and most expensive products The homeless are always remarked on as Bateman walks past them wearing his ridiculously expensive clothing There are endless descriptions of goods and products The use of such a device in the narrative was a perfect way to expose how out of touch society is It doesn t see what s in front of it which allows the real Bateman to explore his darkest and most evil of fantasies unnoticed as he enacts the charade that is his life It s an immensely clever book and though the narrative does become dry and repetitive it was totally necessary to show the mind of a psychopath and his fixations All it comes down to is this I feel like shit but look great That being said though I found myself struggling to read it It wasn t the violence or the nastiness of the protagonist that put me off although that was truly disturbing it was the pessimism that ran through the book There is no hope in sight Ellis shows us a dark part of reality and it left me feeling rather depressed This isn t a criticism of the writing for it is a fantastic creation it s just a summary of my feelings such as they are Afterwards I found myself craving something light and fluffy something that would lift my spirits and restore some of my faith in humanity It s an intense book and it could leave you feeling rather shit It affected me uite strongly which bespeaks the power of this narrative Read it if you dare The School

the narrative does become dry and repetitive it was totally necessary to show the mind of a psychopath and his fixations All it comes down to is this I feel like shit but look great That being said though I found myself struggling to read it It wasn t the violence or the nastiness of the protagonist that put me off although that was truly disturbing it was the pessimism that ran through the book There is no hope in sight Ellis shows us a dark part of reality and it left me feeling rather depressed This isn t a criticism of the writing for it is a fantastic creation it s just a summary of my feelings such as they are Afterwards I found myself craving something light and fluffy something that would lift my spirits and restore some of my faith in humanity It s an intense book and it could leave you feeling rather shit It affected me uite strongly which bespeaks the power of this narrative Read it if you dare
