Dieses Buch sollte von jedem gelesen werden, ohne dabei den Inhalt falsch zu verstehen.
This book should be read by everyone without misunderstanding the content.
Ich finde, das ist eines der missverstandensten Bücher der Welt. Ellis propagiert mit diesem Buch nicht etwa (sexuelle) Gewalt, sondern - wie ich finde - klagt er die Oberflächlichkeit einer durch Konsum und Medien erblindeten Gesellschaft an.
To my mind this is one of the most misunderstood books of the world. Ellis does not propagate (sexual) violence, but - as I think - he accuses and criticises the superficiality of a society gone blind by consumption and media.
Als Ring möchte ich es anbieten, damit sich jeder davon überzeugen kann, aber vielleicht gibt es auch Leute, die meine Meinung dazu widerlegen möchten. Willkommen ist jedenfalls jede Art von konstruktiver Kritik.
I want to offer this book as a ring, so that everybody may convince himself. But there are maybe some people who would like to disprove my opinion. Welcome is, in any case, every kind of constructive criticism.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I'm waiting on an address from bybee, I've PMed twice... I'll give it one more go.. then contact the next person on the list.
EDIT: Bybee has got aquired a their copy of the book.. on to Dozer!
so sorry is took so very long, my car was in the shop and i had no way of getting to a post office.
it's on it's way now though!
It was superbly written, capturing the shallow excessiveness of the 80s perfectly. At times very very funny and at other times almost cyber-punk graphically violent.
It was a relentless book, hitting you time and time again with more and more detail and information. I will certainly be searching out a copy for me recipe book collection.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Of it flies to the land of the Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Anderson and Peter Schmeichal.
Soleille has asked to be skipped and I have contacted alltimereader for an address and will send the book as soon as I get it.
UPDATE: I haven't been able to get in touch with alltimereader so I will try to contact the next person on the list.
So after getting a "remember to send it further"-PM I tried a last time - and failed again.
Perhaps I should have read just some more pages, but I don't want to keep it anymore. If I happen to meet this book again, I will perhaps give it another try, but this copy is now ready for further travel.
