Customer Review

on 10 September 2006
Lunar Park is a supposed autobiographic book written by the author of classic and majorly controversial books such as American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction and Less Than Zero. It is a tale of the glamorous, greedy and hedonistic lifestyle of a highly successful and famous author and the troubles he faces leaving that lifestyle for mundane suburbia. Throughout the book drugs, cocaine especially, is a major part of Easton Ellis' life, one which brings the greatest joys and relief's but also creates the greatest struggles and reveals the darkest sides of the author.

After leaving his troubled and abusive father for a college place at a specialist writing college, Easton Ellis begins to pursue his career as a successful author. At the age of twenty he finds fame and fortune with the success of his debut book, Less Than Zero. This is when Easton Ellis addictive lifestyle begins to take full swing, describing the wealth, the parties, the cocaine and the sex life involving famous models and Hollywood actresses.

His life takes a major turn when he meets his future wife and famous actress Jayne Dennis. He becomes clean from drink and drugs; they marry and move to suburban Connecticut, where life is not as simple and innocent as it seems. As soon as they arrive the married dream begins to fall apart; Easton Ellis relapses, young boys from the neighbourhood begin to disappear, his daughters `Terby' Doll seems to be alive and after Easton Ellis. But most unbelievably his most infamous creation, Patrick Bateman, the American Psycho has apparently come to life, stalking the neighbourhood causing mayhem through his grotesque copycat American Psycho murders . The question that brings such trouble to the reader is; is this purely a drug induced hallucination, is it purely a lie or is it in fact the truth?
