I just finished reading this for the second time and I am curious if anyone else enjoyed this book and what your thoughts on it are. I personally really enjoyed the book after the kind of slow opening. What I am most curious about is the focus on clothing when describing people in the story. What do you think this is supposed to mean? Is it how he personally views others or is it basically social commentary pointing out that we as Americans are obsessed with material objects and status symbols? Do you think Pat Bateman represents something bigger, or is this just the story of a creepy murderous sexual deviant psychopath? Do you think he was caught after the story ends? What are your thoughts on this excellent book?
