Be prepared for this book

Undoubtedly this book is filled with violence and disturbing imagery. So if you are particularly sensitive to these things then perhaps be wary of listening to it. However, it provides a satirical account of our hyper-consumptive way of life; alienation and boredom. The protagonist is utterly deplorable - he is a psychopath after all - but seeing an extreme version of the wealthy late 80's/early 90's New York through his eyes is intriguing. In terms of the audio production the narration is excellent and I will look for other books read by Nick Landrum.

A good listen!

The narration was very good, both in terms of pronunciation and animation in the voice. The book was written in such a way, as to make a point, and in my opinion it is a social critique. There are a lot of details and they will sometimes be somewhat boring to a listener, but there are also scenes that are terribly violent and brutal, but both of these characteristics help to underline the author's point, so it works!

interested and funny but long

had me laughing out loud at times and its extremely well written and interesting but can get repetitive at times if you're not in the right mood. possibly the most gruesome thing I've ever read, for me this is neither a good thing nor a bad thing.

Believe me, u ain't ready for this...

Would you listen to American Psycho again? Why?

Absolutely. So addictive. Easton Ellis gave me something, and now it's over, and I'm sad.

What did you like best about this story?

Bateman's eye for detail.

Have you listened to any of Nick Landrum’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Who was the most memorable character of American Psycho and why?

Bateman obviously. I think aspects of his character will resonate with most people.

Any additional comments?

Also, a very interesting insight into 80's yuppie America. So much of the social commentary holds true today.

The worse book I have ever listen too

I gave up after listening to 75% of this book. Patrick is unlikable and is nothing more than evil. The details of his violence is horrific. The characters in the book both boring and rude. I don't care if this is some social commentary on the period, the book can not be classed as entertaining or informative. It is garbage and does not deserve its status. I will not listen to or read anything else Bret Easton Elllis has written as this book has turned me off both his style and thinking. Nick Landrum is fantastic in his narration. I wished I had read the other reviews before listening to this disgusting piece of literature. There are some things you don't need to know and wish you never experience, this book is one of them.

depraved

I find this review hard to write. The book itself may be (in my view) described as depraved, corrupt, lacking in any literary content, a selection of words looking for a plot and not finding it . There was no content here, one can but wonder how it was published at all, it contributed nothing to American literature. The characters (such as they were) were shallow in the extreme, nothing , nothing at all to recommend it.

Still a very funny book

Laughed so much, very cynical, on a certain level very true, very disturbing and read very well.
