Day 13 of the challenge from Books and Cupcakes! I submit Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho.


I wanted this book to be great. I really did. I get and respect the takedown of capitalist materialism, but man… if you want to slog through pages and pages of descriptions of high-end designer brand items and tomes on 80’s pop music, this is the book for you. Couple these items with a protagonist so despicable that he makes you wonder why you should care, and you may decide you just don’t.



Watch the movie instead. It’s great!
