So I just finished reading the book by Brett Easton Ellis and enjoyed it although some parts made me feel sick. I actually had to stop reading it at one point while I was eating breakfast at a cafe. Have you read it? What do you think? Is Patrick Bateman just imagining all the violence or is it real? I have seen the movie a couple of times and, in my view, the movie doesn't do it justice. You really don't get a feel for the character in the movie or for the level of violence in the book. Thoughts? Should it have been banned?
