Reviews of Rules of Attraction, the (1987)
Review by drache_gnar (2006-05-05)
The Rules of Attraction, the second offering from Bret Easton Ellis, is a sickly funny melencholic tale of weaving lives, the tribulations of relations formed upon the grounds of sexual gratification, the moral bankrupcy of humanity, and, most importantly I think, how different people percieve different events.
While not Ellis' best novel, The Rules of Attraction is brilliant in it's own right. You'll hate characters while still caring what they have to say.
While not as good as Glamorama, Lunar Park, or American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction is much better than his frist novel, Less Than Zero, which as an amazing novel in it's own right.
