The only aspect of American Psycho I didn't enjoy were the music review chapters. After a few pages I was like "Yeah, I get it." The movie distilled that element in a brilliant way. The violence in the book is 10 million times more vicious than in the movie.I don't even think American Psycho is worth a read unless you can tolerate lists of '80s designer brands (Oliver Peoples glasses) mixed with torture porn. I love the movie, though.
In the book, Bateman gouges out the guy's eyes, cuts off his dick and guts him. Then goes to Mcdonalds and drinks three milkshakes.
