>>7622057 ^^^^^^^^ The book is extremely dark and morose compared the film. Exceedingly, the narration becomes murkier and murkier as the sanity from the narrator slips. It's definitely worth the read and could almost be considered two different sides to the same coin.
>>7622043 Book is shit and only appeals to edgy faggots with no taste who watch Isis beheadings for the feels, and who feel superior for picking up on the obvious commentary on a lifestyle that they won't experience In a million years because they are beta nerds with an English degree.
movie has some redeeming kitsch value, mostly in bales over the top performance.

Bitch, I've read most well known Russian French, Spanish, and Italian literature yet I think American Psycho is pretty rad book out there. Stop spreading false rumors if you don't like what you read off of your miserable life.
>>7622181 Your post came as a glimmer of hope my friend. I came to the thread and was prepared to abandon this board at seeing that American Psycho was actually praised and with sincerity! You have made it evident that all hope is not lost for this board and I thank you for that.
>>7622043 the movie gained a cult following of psuedo-intellectual under 30 year olds who misinterpreted the movie that misinterpreted the book aka Ellis' criticisms of misogyny and racism infused with capitalism
>>7622176 arguably the book itself for about 300+ pages is edgey fag lord tier. However, the book does have an extremely good introduction for the first 70-100 pages. I will agree it is not by definition literature and suffers from being a time-piece, but it is a damn good timely book for those 70-100 pages.
holy shit, im willing to bet the BEE bashers havent read a single book of his and are ignorantly flaming OP because of the anti BEE memery that goes into every image regarding conduct around here.
and so yet those images are designed to keep this kind of commentary down and out, where they fucking belong, because irrational ignorance is what we're trying to combat by reading literature right?
movie is a reinterpretation of the book, they take the story and respin it for film. the only way youd ask this question is if you watched the movie and arent sure if the book is worth your precious time, in which case please kill yourself for thinking you dont have time to read through a 300 page novel to sate your intellectual curiosity.
a glimmer of hope that this disgusting board operating on several levels of what can only be termed as some fucking whackd kafkaesque bureaucratic group think, can still be successfully socially engineered by those capable of trolling the trolls etc
