Read in June, 2010

Weird. Ellis is at his best when describing vapid individuals who are frightened, violent, and have nothing to do. Follows the trend of Lunar Park and makes things vaguely autobiographical, referencing "The Informers" and the movie that followed. "Imperial Bedrooms" works as a critique of Hollywood, although "Hollywood uses and throws away young people" isn't exactly new. Some depictions of very disturbing violence. I don't know that I "like" this book, but it scared me. Ellis is an effective writer.
