My problem with this book is that it is about 400 pages of disjointed scenes, unnecessary perversion and gore. I actually think the film adaptation, released in 2000 and starring Christian Bale as Bateman, is a better representation of the story mainly because it lacked the horrific torture scenes that filled the novel. And I do mean the most vile and graphic scenes I have ever experienced, in any medium.
Not one for the squeamish or faint-hearted.
