What did you like best about American Psycho? What did you like least?
I think it would almost be sick to say what I like best about American Psycho because its sooooo deranged. This is one of those novels where you question the sanity of the author because it's just that twisted. So I guess what I like "best" is the authors ability to completely step outside of himself (hopefully) and bring to life a homicidal sociopath like Patrick Bateman. I tend to agree with most of the other reviewers when they say that the descriptions of what everyone is wearing gets to be a little much. There gets to be a point where it's almost laughable. But at the same time, I get the need for it. It's so Patrick.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I mean, how could you not choose Patrick. Even though there are many characters, Patrick is really the only character.
Which character – as performed by Pablo Schreiber – was your favorite?
I thought the narration was some of the best I've ever heard. I've listened to a bunch of books but Pablo's take on Patrick was on point.
Was American Psycho worth the listening time?
There were points that I didn't know if I could finish it mostly because it's slightly repetitive. Dinners, AMEX, labels, cocktails, etc.
Any additional comments?
If you're a fan of the movie don't expect too many similarities. Where the movie and novel share the same title. Easton's Bateman is so much more crude, violent, foul mouthed then depicted in the movie. The movie only scratches the surface of the characters, the murder, the gore, the language. So if you think you've got the stomach for it, you won't be disappointed.

Patrick Bates is one sick puppy that we see spiral worse and worse with heinous acts of psychosis.
The narration was great.
If you have weak stomach you may not want to read this. He gets really descriptive.
Overall, I thought this was a great book.
