Publisher's Summary

In Glamorama, Bret Easton Ellis shows us a shadowy looking-glass world, the juncture where fame and fashion, terror and mayhem meet and then begin to resemble the familiar surface of our lives. 

The centre of the world: 1990s Manhattan. Victor Ward, a model with perfect abs and all the right friends, is seen and photographed everywhere, even in places he hasn’t been and with people he doesn’t know. On the eve of opening the trendiest nightclub in New York history, he’s living with one beautiful model and having an affair with another. Now it’s time to move to the next stage. But the future he gets is not the one he had in mind.

Critic Reviews

“Does for the cold, minimal ’90s what American Psycho did for the Wall Street greed of the ’80s. You name it, he manages to get it all in.” (Vogue)

Sublime

Not Ellis’s best book, but the narrator makes it awesome. J Davis is at his best here and makes this an epic listen

Not what I expected

this book is written from the perspective of a f**cking moron. this is what makes it funny and is probably its brightest shining point. For the same reason, however, the plot is unraveled in a vague, uninformative way, as you're never sure whether what Victor experiences is the truth or something he misunderstands. Because of this, the plot feels a lot more complicated than it actually is, it isn't hard to predict the ending from 1/3 of the way through. What disappointed me the most was the lack of a big pay off, or 'money shot' or a turning point in the story where something was revealed and everything else made more sense. If you like Ellis' dry, witty and punchy writing, then there's plenty of that in this book. If you're here for an interesting plot hitned at by the all-too-short blurb, then go elsewhere.

I did not have an enjoyable experience

If you like cheap childish plots as an excuse to do porn and gore you will love this book.
The characters have no substance the writing is in existent/does not have any specific/personal style, the book is way too long especially considering what it is.
The claim that this is a denunciation of models and celebrities is pathetic but so typical. Makes me think about how exposing your breasts and ass is the way to go if you’re a feminist.
While I did not like the book at all, I think the most unbearable is the narrator’s voice constantly screaming and whining in your ears, forcing you to turn the volume up and down constantly.
