Be prepared for this book

Undoubtedly this book is filled with violence and disturbing imagery. So if you are particularly sensitive to these things then perhaps be wary of listening to it. However, it provides a satirical account of our hyper-consumptive way of life; alienation and boredom. The protagonist is utterly deplorable - he is a psychopath after all - but seeing an extreme version of the wealthy late 80's/early 90's New York through his eyes is intriguing. In terms of the audio production the narration is excellent and I will look for other books read by Nick Landrum.

The worse book I have ever listen too

I gave up after listening to 75% of this book. Patrick is unlikable and is nothing more than evil. The details of his violence is horrific. The characters in the book both boring and rude. I don't care if this is some social commentary on the period, the book can not be classed as entertaining or informative. It is garbage and does not deserve its status. I will not listen to or read anything else Bret Easton Elllis has written as this book has turned me off both his style and thinking. Nick Landrum is fantastic in his narration. I wished I had read the other reviews before listening to this disgusting piece of literature. There are some things you don't need to know and wish you never experience, this book is one of them.
