A review by anim0rphs
American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis


I read this book back in high school, or maybe fresh out of high school and thought it had some of the most horrific mutilation scenes ever. Now that I'm 25 and a seasoned horror book reader and horror movie enthusiast, I was curious to see if I would still feel the same way about this book. And yup, its still one of the most fucked up books I've read.

Besides the obvious appeal for the horror fan, what a great book for exploring classism, racism, sexism, homophobia, for exploring everything wrong with the white upper class. I forgot how funny this book is too. I enjoyed it even more the second time around.
