Bret Easton Ellis advice wanted, 1001 Books to read before you die (elokuu 2008)

Assolutamente da leggere. Molte le assonanze con la Tartt (ambientazione, romanzo di formazione) e Stephen King (richiami a canzoni e automobili).

This is one of the most fascinating books I've read. It is also the most appalling thing I have ever read. As such, while I would readily recommend this book, I feel that under no good conscience could I actually do so.

If you've seen the 2000 film, that will give some idea of what to expect, but the film only touches the surface of what is in the book. Less a story than a continuing mental narrative of a rich Wall Street business man who approaches his exterior with exacting attention to detail while his interior barely passes for human. What starts with meticulous listings of what people are dressed in via style, material, and brand name is intruded upon by increasing graphic descriptions of violence as the narrative becomes more unhinged. "See me" he seems to plead, but no one does.

I am in no way surprised this book is so controversial, but I also believe that it's a powerful critique of what occupies our attention in society.
