#24 American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

On the outside, Patrick Bateman seems to have it all.  He’s vice president of an upscale firm, he lives in an swanky apartment and he wears only the finest clothes.  On the inside, Patrick embodies all that is sick within the human soul.  He spends his days  in a world where materialism reigns and individuality is not an option. His nights are spent  torturing and killing people in horrific acts of violence. But are the murders just figments of Patrick’s imagination or is he indeed a psychopath?  It’s hard to know.   One thing is certain: this is not someone you want to encounter in a dark alley, Armani suit or no.
