Intense

I finished reading American Psycho and am getting ready for today's book club. All I can say is don't eat when reading this book.
I posted my thoughts on this actually on the movie blog last night
I honestly don't know if I could sit through that book again or not?  I liked it, but it's extreme.  Thinking about it this morning, going over things I want to discuss in book club later, I keep coming back to the fact that if I had read this when I was in high school  or college, it would have taken a different tone for me.  I think I would have been able to stomach more of the extreme elements easier.  I've admitted this before not too long ago, I've lost my taste for horror in the the last few years.
I still love a good Nightmare on Elm Street movie or a good Hellraiser film, but I really don't much care for  the type of stuff that's come out in the last few years.  And this book is intense.
I do realize this book is twenty years old, and for some people it's just toast. 

Anyways, coffee then off to book club.
