Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this seductive and chillingly nihilistic novel, Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho, returns to Los Angeles, the city whose moral badlands he portrayed unforgettably in Less Than Zero. The time is the early eighties. The characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. Their voices enfold us as seamlessly as those of DJs heard over a car radio. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy from the same dealers. In short, they are connected in the only way people can be in that city.

Synopsis:

In this seductive and chillingly nihilistic novel, Bret Easton Ellis, bestselling author of American Psycho, returns to Los Angeles, the city whose moral badlands he first surveyed in Less Than Zero. His characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy their drugs from the same dealers. And their interactions delineate a chilling, fascinating, and outrageous descent into the abyss beneath the gorgeous surfaces of L.A.

This was an interesting read, but I hesitate to recommend it. One of Ellis' stylistic choices in this book is to give the reader no idea which character he is reading about, chapter to chapter, until a few pages into each one. I am sure some find this "hip" or "interesting" but seriously, its lame...It's actually frustrating--frustrating and lame. Also, the mutiple stories have little, if anything, to do with each other...its like Ellis became bored with the primary plot and decided to head into a completely new direction, with completely different characters...The more I write about this book, the less I like it...so I better stop.
