    Bret Easton Ellis is my literary hero but I don't really recommend him to anyone This is the only Bret Easton Ellis book with a plot; his longest work so far and definitely the hardest book in terms of difficulty to read It's downright disgusting creepy and ugly I'm not even denying it but that's what I normally dig so it works Don't judge me I've Oscar Wilde backing me up 'At first I was confused by what pas

N places he hasn't been and with people he doesn't know He's living with one beautiful model and having an affair with another one on the eve of. Hi Leo Hi Leo Are you seriously gonna do this Yeah I ve got a friend who will likely read this whom I m hoping will find it funny that I ve done this ahahahah What have you been reading Leo Stop saying my name It s creepy I actually tried another Bret Easton Ellis book thinking I d enjoy it Wanted to give the guy another chance Hah Not content with people taking advantage of your meekness IRL you re now extending the courtesy to books It s too easy for you to dislike me man You know too much In this one there s a model dude who endlessly list celebs goes to parties fairly plotless affairs drugs he sees confetti everywhere smells shit is cold may or may not be a film Oh cool Well it s not that bad then If you were gonna try BEE again better you pick some novella It s 500 pages I ve no idea Oh Well you made it to the end right Don t listen don t you start with me on this Okay What You re gonna back out now There s no need to get all riled up Yeah but it s because of your passive aggression that I felt the need to finish this one You re so insecure about ditching bad books I ll work on it Just tell me what this one means so we can move on This guy sees confetti everywhere Why One admission first I didn t make it to the end Cringes Page number 400 Not bad If you didn t have the point by then Exactly Yeah so he sees confetti everywhere and it s never falling it s always landed because it s like he s late to the party If I remember correctly first he sees it on a table he s at and it s on his shoulders and later it appears on the street and in blood and stuff So it was falling on him then it s already fallen everywhere he goes He s becoming a has been at 27 and the party s over feeling refers to the party of life Early on a character mentions the lifecycle of the celeb nobody rising star star has been The only lifecycle these celebs are concerned with is the lifecycle of the celeb It may as well mean death once the cycle comes to an end This is cute I guess but it s nothing people hadn t figured To say nothing of the fact that years of dedication to the writing of this to me demonstrates an unironic interest in this culture nullifying anything vaguely satirising it would have to say What s that uote about satire If you don t know it I don t Something about it being a mirror or a sphere of glass in which you see everything but yourself But there s BEE s magnified face right in the centre genuinely giving a shit IMHO What do I know My American Psycho thoughts were not appreciated Oh yeah What were they Sighs I deleted the review in the end Couldn t be bothered defending it Didn t care enough and what internet stranger thinks they re gonna change another internet stranger s opinion through the magic of condescension There are many entertaining ways to waste your time Like writing book reviews forgetting about them and then defending 5 year old opinions even although you forgot what they were For all the internet s merits the whole permanent record thing makes people s worldviews seem artificially static Yeah make sure and write a BEE reminiscent novel about that and make sure you can tell me when it s done so I can go ahead and not read it anyway wasn t there like a weird manneuin purple blood hallucination thing in the middle It s so convenient how much you do and don t know about what I just read mate Given BEE s commitment to soullessness not the voice he has created for Victor just a genuine soullessness of his mission a novel that is indeed pages of words but with no heart behind it it s some Don DeLillo steal probably Doesn t mean anything The smell of shit A nab from Infinite Jest which is obsessed with waste IJ came out in 1996 this came out in 1998 and the shit smelling starts about halfway into the text It seems to have taken BEE about four years to write this so he d be right in the middle of writing it when IJ came out Ahaha Pffft I doubt either was the first to wade about in waste I just thought it was a funny coincidence Anyway these little symbols are supposed to make us think that Victor s different from the rest somehow like we should feel sorry for him because he s caught up in a superficial world when he was meant for better But nothing in his actions or even his words gives evidence of this If it ain t true of BEE it ain t true of his characters There s also this bit where the protagonist of this novel is on an ocean liner and Jurassic Park is playing and he has dinner with The Wallaces In DFW s A Supposedly Fun Thing an essay about a cruise holiday Jurassic Park plays repeatedly IDK what BEE s trying to do here but it s a faux pas nonetheless Wallace s BEE insecurity manifested itself when he pretended he hadn t read any BEE at the time of writing his BEE adjacent stories He pure had Neither BEE s nor DFW s strategies are recommended Just tell us you hate the guy and can t stand that you think he can write well We would love you all the for it The main character s cold all the time The frigid nature of the text tells you that one People s breath steams a lot BEE s stab at joining the canon of great American writers who are careless with science Or all the characters were really kettles Edit I ve read at least three violations of this kind in other texts since writing this review for the first time yesterday Another common one if a substance is water based I don t think it should be described it as oilygreasy but I read all the time oily blood and greasy tears etc In general I don t enjoy authors who are so afraid of cliches that they ll deliberately imbue their text with weird expressions they ve never seen before Sometimes there s a reason something hasn t seen before it s wrong The literary world is all too kind about science violations Don DeLillo can think lightyears are a type of year if the mistake appears in a pretty sentence The literary world could use scientists Or engineers mebs What about the mentions of a director a cinematographer learning the script calling out action all of that Was it all a film or not I need to know Hahahaha no you don t Probably a metaphor for la la land of celeb culture the clich of narcissists that they see life as their own film It s the pointlessness of the lives they lead they re just reading scripts going through the motions dead in life late to the party What with all the terrorist stuff introduced it shows a real cognitive dissonance taking place in Victor s head when it comes to heavy stuff going on on the planet at the same time as he s thirsting after all of his silly pursuits I do know if it s a film or not You do Which is it It may or may not be Who would watch a film this dull anyway What kind of an answer is that It s the same as American Psycho did he kill those people or not He may or may not have I mean to say that s about as far as the author took that idea It s not as I think he would pretend that he holds a secret answer in his heart and asks the reader to formulate their own solution Instead I just feel in my heart how soulless this text is Snarky tone Yeah well Leo that s the point I m glad you got that one in before a BEE fan reading this could I agree that you may well feel that s the case but I don t Seems like uite a convenient get out clause If the writer doesn t care about the answer to a uestion his text raises why the hell should you I suppose you also feel that when people compare your writing to BEE s it s inaccurate Dude my review of his book is a dialogue conducted with myself I wish it was inaccurate At least with this book he s proven he can write passable female characters and for that it gets one star than American Psycho Return to Yesterday you seriously gonna do this Yeah I ve got a friend who will likely read this whom I m hoping will find it funny that I ve done this ahahahah What have Ill Remember You you been reading Leo Stop saying my name It s creepy I actually tried another Bret

Opening the trendiest nightclub in New York's history Now it's time to move to the next stage But the future he gets is not the one he had in min. I read this book like eleven years ago or maybe it was twelve or inevitably even longer in the future I don t remember much about it I remember taking it out of the library it was in the new release section so I only had ten days to read the book I then remember reading part of it sitting at the counter of a coffee shop that would be soon banning me from being their customer but that has nothing to do with the book I do remember that the part of the book which I remember reading at the above mentioned counter took place in a boat I liked this book I remember that I remember thinking that it was a let down after the amazing American Psycho which I do not care if you agree or disagree with my opinion about AP even mentioning this book causes extreme reactions from people I liked it if you didn t that s ok If you feel the need to froth at the mouth about liking or disliking the book take it too another review I don t feel like being a part of a discussion about the book and that the book was disjointed with the first half and the second half being night and day and that the links between high fashion celebrity culture and international terrorism were a little eh But I also remember that silly Bret Easton Ellis was still an enjoyable read And that I feel like I ve been a major douche bag by being a Bret Easton Ellis hater of sorts just because every hipster that can read or at least wants to make it look like he or she can read has asked for his books doesn t mean that I can t still like him becasue he was good and maybe the books that came after this one are still good or book does he have anything than Lunar Park as of this writing I know he has one this summer and once again he will be reading at our store and I will try not to think bad thoughts of him this time even if the store fills to capacity with the turdiest of the turds from Williamsburg I kind of miss reading him now that I think of it I think I m going to go find a copy of Less than Zero read the fuck out of it in preparation for the seuel coming out this summer to his debut novel And maybe I ll enjoy it that s right hipsters I ll enjoy it in spite of you

The centre of the world 1990s Manhattan Victor Ward a model with perfect abs and all the right friends is seen and photographed everywhere even i. Bret Easton Ellis is my literary hero but I don t really recommend him to anyone This is the only Bret Easton Ellis book with a plot his longest work so far and definitely the hardest book in terms of difficulty to read It s downright disgusting creepy and ugly I m not even denying it but that s what I normally dig so it works Don t judge me I ve Oscar Wilde backing me up At first I was confused by what passed for love in this world people were discarded because they were too old or too fat or too poor or they had too much hair or not enough they were wrinkled they had no muscles no definition no tone they weren t hip they weren t remotely famous This was how you chose lovers This was what decided friends And I had to accept this if I wanted to get anywhere Does BEE somehow end up being clairvoyant Like he mentions something a lot and those things end up being relevant later Donald Trump becomes president some decades after the release of American Psycho 911 takes place only two years after the publication of Glamorama The first two three hundred pages of the book almost reads like American psycho Replace all the descriptions of brands and bands in American psycho with Models and Hollywood and a lot of namedropping replace pornographic descriptions of sex with pornographic descriptions of sex music in background with music in background violence with terrorism Yuppies with models late eighties with late nineties All that remains is consumerism people shallow as fuck and a sick immoral world Typical Bret Easton Ellis did i end up wearing khakis because of that fucking ad This just became my second favourite uote of all time I loved Glamorama than American Psycho in a way but this one was overdone Even though I enjoyed the satire initially it took forever to finish first two parts of the book But then it becomes a clusterfuck of spooky events add celebrities and terrorists and bombs I can just write down Victor is everyone of us we re products of consumerism and all that but you d just be rolling your eyes all over and I m way too biased to rate this book a full five
