by Bret Easton Ellis. One night I was sitting on the bed in my hotel room on Bunker Hill, down in the very middle of Los Angeles.

Set in Los Angeles, in the recent past. Bret Easton Ellis is of my biggest influences as an author and while this book isn’t quite on a level with the exceptional American Psycho, which is probably his masterpiece, it is still excellent and well worth reading. The way Bret Easton Ellis captures the mindset of a certain element of society in the 1980s and pushes it to it’s logical conclusion is very much something I was trying to emulate in Drug Gang, with my chosen time period being the early 2000s.

On Tuesday evening, news broke on Twitter that Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho and Less Than Zero, was publishing a new book, his first in nearly a decade. A collection of essays that look at how free speech is threatened in today’s society, the book, provocatively titled White, is sure to infuriate many. In fact, it already has. The working title (since changed) was White Privileged Male, and that, combined with a one-sentence description of its contents and Ellis’s controversial persona, was enough to spark the fires of Twitter outrage

The basis of the major motion picture starring Billy Bob Thornton, KimBasinger and Mickey Rourke, The Informers is a seductive and chillingly nihilistic novel, in which Bret Easton Ellis, returns to Los Angeles, the city whose moral badlands he portrayed so unforgettably in Less Than Zero. This time is the early eighties. The characters go to the same schools and eat at the same restaurants. Their voices enfold us as seamlessly as those of DJs heard over a car radio. They have sex with the same boys and girls and buy from the same dealers. In short, they are connected in the only way people can be in that city.

Dirk sees his best friend killed in a desert car wreck, then rifles through his pockets for a last joint before the ambulance comes. Cheryl, a wannabe newscaster, chides her future stepdaughter, “You're tan but you don't look happy.” Jamie is a clubland carnivore with a taste for human blood. As rendered by Ellis, their interactions compose a chilling, fascinating, and outrageous descent into the abyss beneath L.A.'s gorgeous surfaces.

  • Chuynopana
This complilation has some good and some bad stories but unfortunately I can't really recommend this book and myabe it's because I am not a huge fan of short story complations. There are some characters that appear througout and some continuity but most of these stories are the same versions of each other in one form or another. Ellis' has that ability to replicate that sunshine maliase of Los Angeles known only to its inhabitants and this makes it interesting for So Cal readers like myself as is also the case with Less Than Zero. Ellis needs more than a few pages to set up his characters and that is part of the problem of Informers.
Bottom Line: fans of Ellis should check it out, curious readers should start at the beginnin with Less Than Zero. Reading Ellis' books in order is actually really important for two reasons. First, Less Than Zero is the easiest read of them all and it introduces you to his style in a gradual manner. Second, Ellis uses the amusing literary trick of characters popping up here and there in other novels and you will recognize the most of these by reading his books in chronilogical order.

Quick read. Took me a while to tell the difference between the characters because the voice wasn't too distinct, but after about thirty pages it got easier to follow.

The bits of story going on throughout is very interesting.

One of the last little "Stories" in this book blew my mind. Very Bret Easton Ellis. Which I was glad about.
I'd recommend this book for someone who is a fan of Ellis, and or dark '80s humor.
  • Zicelik
which captured only the most superficial moral of what Ellis was trying to convey. There are a lot of tiny flashbacks which would have been difficult to film. However, the older roles should not have been expanded in the film because Ellis carefully tears them down or makes them smaller here. It's the details of the rich young druggies which add up to uncompromisingly empty and pointless lives in a daring truthful way.
  • Aloo
This book's ensemble of stories are interesting and parts of it may be a little disturbing. Of course, I enjoy that about the book, but some of you may find it uncomfortable.

Bret Easton Ellis books have a tendency to make a reader feel like a piece of crap, so be sure to detach yourself from the characters on this one.
  • Nten
I kind of had more expectations for this book after seeing the movie, which was a flop. As you know the book is almost always better than the movie. It's well written and definitely interesting, but the story line is, well, absent, I think it's just different groups of people that happen to have linked lives. I wouldn't read it a second time.
  • Snowseeker
I get so depressed reading BEE's books, but i always come back for more. There is a little bit of each character in all of us.
  • Venemarr
Not a "classic," but well written, entertaining, and captivating. I would recommend it to any of Ellis's fans or fans of short stories.
A great story with creepy imagery but with a social message we are not accustomed to hearing. You should read it!
