Review: Imperial Bedrooms by Bret Easton Ellis

Imperial Bedrooms


I enthusiastically selected this book from the Amazon Vine program solely because Bret Easton Ellis wrote it. Glamorama is one of my favorite books to reread but sadly Imperial Bedrooms doesn't live up to any of Bret's previous works. While I was reading the book I kept thinking to myself, "Maybe I just don't get it." but once I finished the book I read other reviews and realized that it wasn't just me. For a story that picks up 25 years later I was hoping for more closure from the characters. Instead the book is just a sad, predictable snooze fest. I wouldn't recommend this one even as a library read.
