Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis

"I open the mini­bar. I don’t even look at what bot­tle I take out."

This sequel to Less than Zero  written some twenty five years later, really didn't too much for me. It does serve as the first book I've finished for 2014, so there is that to recommend it. Lots of paranoia, unpleasantly violent sex and general obnoxious behaviour. The good thing about it is - well it is short.

I absolutely loved American Psycho  so this was a complete disappointment to me. This vacillates between murky and just plain meh. The laxative laced treats that lead to a shitty sex scene was probably the low point for this reader.

1 out of 5 readers should run for the Hollywood Hills.
