Unpopular opinion! in General Book Discussions Posted October 27, 2010 · Report reply I absolutely hated American Psycho; just too much pointless violence much too in your face. Whatever point was being made was lost; just too nihilistic for me. I don't mind the nihilism. What I hated about this book was the absolutely horrible violence. Don't get me wrong, I like violence in books and films, but Bateman was just.. thw way he treated the first guy he killed, the homeless man, he abused him mentally too. Disgusting. Oh and the thign I hated most about this book, the violence against animals. The things he did to that homeless mans dog.. had me feeling icky for days. Though the book isn't really overrated in my eyes, it's good but not my cup of tea. I agree on, what was it? Eragon. Boooooooooooring. Am actually about 150-200 pages into Fellowship of the Ring now and I love it. Think it's funny to see how people's opinions are different, some books I love you guys hate, and the other way around.
