this book absolutely sucks

Pros:none whatsover

Cons:Besides being a terrible book?

I was intrigued by "American Psycho" after hearing so much of it from the anticipated movie release. i bought the book a few weeks ago, hoping it would be an interesting foray into the mind of a modern day pshyco. It was, but Pat Batemans mind is a terrible place to visit. He does not have the genius appeal of a Hannibal Lecter. Constantly telling what his 'friends' ad nauseum became quite annoying. And there were whole chapters devoted to the virtues of Whitney Houston, why Genesis is the best English band of the 80's and his pioneer sound system. Does this give me any glimpse to why Pat Bateman is a psycho? No, it just tells me he has horrible, horrible taste.
To sum this book up is easy: the beginning sucked, the middle sucked, and the ending really, really sucked. Don't buy or read this book. I threw it in the trash when i was done with my copy.
