Such a bizarre satire and one of the most controversial books of the 20th century. Feminists left and right have attacked it due to the character's, Patrick Bateman, misogynistic actions, even though Bret Easton Ellis has stated over and over that this book was meant to portray everything wrong with society through not only this character, but the people and events surrounding him. It's a satire on the yuppie culture, not an autobiography on the desires of the writer, but these feminists refuse to see that and only look at the surface. What do you guys think? Personally I think Bret Easton Ellis is a very good writer. His simplistic style in his previous novels, especially Less Than Zero, is so enticing because of its cold emptiness that is exactly what the characters feel. He is my main inspiration of the transgressive authors. At the end of his books, I feel different and distant, unlike any other author has made me feel.
