An American Classic,
This review is from: American Psycho (Paperback)
This book is incredible. Despite all the negative things written about it, it is a work of literary genius. Behind all the violence, it is a social satire and this is vastly overlooked. American Psycho is Ellis' take on the American Dream and its transformation into an America Nightmare. It shows how rotten to the core 1980's society was.
I enjoyed it so much I'm writing my University Dissertation on it. Everyone should read this book, it is truly an important piece of modern day American Literature.
