Transcript of American Psycho
-Tony Williams SO SHOULD THIS BOOK BE BANNED? YES And here's why... And is it reasonable for it to be challenged as much as it is? This book contains graphic violence and sexual content that may be disturbing to many readers. This book has numerous accounts of being "sexist," for many of the main victims are women. Detailed descriptions of sexual interactions Harsh, sexist, racist, and generally offensive language and subject matter "Australian OFLC decisions can be reviewed and reversed – as when Pasolini’s final film Salo (1975), which was banned in Australia from the time of its release in 1975 until it was un-banned in 1993, was then banned again in 1998 – however, American Psycho’s initial classification has remained unchanged. In July 2006, I purchased a new paperback copy in rural New South Wales. It was shrink-wrapped in plastic and labelled: ‘R. Category One. Not available to persons under 18 years. Restricted’. While exact sales figures are difficult to ascertain, by working with U.S.A., U.K. and Australian figures, this copy was, I estimate, one of some 1.5 to 1.6 million sold since publication. In the U.S.A., backlist sales remain very strong, with some 22,000 copies sold annually (Holt and Abbott), while lifetime sales in the U.K. are just under 720,000 over five paperback editions. Sales in Australia are currently estimated by Pan MacMillan to total some 100,000, with a new printing of 5,000 copies recently ordered in Australia on the strength of the book being featured on the inaugural Australian Broadcasting Commission’s First Tuesday Book Club national television program (2006)."

-Donna Lee Brien SO SHOULD YOU GO READ THIS BOOK? Please don't. It's not worth the time. The violent killing paired with the boring passages about vanity and hair products leads to a pointless story. There is not much to take from this book, unless you invent your own morals to believe. It's cruel, heartless, and a waste of time. Hey guys, please don't read this.
