    As far as I m concerned, this book is quintessential Bret Easton Ellis, alongside Less Than Zero.Though dedicated and engrossing, the book takes several hard swerves, unflinchingly.It s easy to perceive this book as shallow, and somewhat lacking in substance for empathy, but I believe that this is generally the author s intention Victor is not likeable, though I do believe he is made personable as the book continues.I am extremely reluctant to reveal anything about the book I will advise, I did not particularly enjoy the book until I was somewhere around the 100 page mark, but I will emphatically suggest that it is worth the patience.

    Though there were times during the reading of this when I literally didn t have a scooby what was going on, I really enjoyed it I just read it as a thriller, well that and the tale of a man losing his marbles, rather than any great comment on the 90s, so I might have missed something but I don t think so.

    Have read all but one by Brett easton ellis American psycho by far my favourite In all honesty this book completely lost me I had no clue of what was going on, then all of a sudden, something mad happens which has a pleasant twist Is it a constant set or is there an element of real life odd.

    Glamorama expertly captures the vapidity of celebdom in Ellis trademark, frequently stomach churning, style Unfortunately the intoxicating fluidity of his prose was so overwhelmed by self indulgent affects and loose ends that it became difficult to separate the work from the style over substance attitude it satirises It left me feeling seduced and impressed, but ultimately dissatisfied Actually, maybe that s the point.

    As disturbing as it is engrossing, Glamorama read just as well on its second reading almost 15 years after its first Is still stands up as a testament to the vacuous decade which gave birth to the reality show horrors of today
