The Twilight Saga

Patrick

Bateman is the ultimate stereotype of yuppie greed: rich, shallow, and addicted to sex, drugs, and conspicuous consumption. His life revolves around dining at trendy restaurants while keeping up appearances for his circle of equally wealthy, shallow friends, most of whom he dislikes. However, he also leads a secret life as a serial killer, murdering a variety of people, from colleagues, to the homeless, to prostitutes. Many of his victims, he murders make him feel inadequate, usually by having better taste than he does. His crimes, including rape, torture, murder, necrophilia and cannibalism. He often expresses doubts regarding his own sanity and has periodic attacks of psychosis, during which he hallucinates. He also often experiences feelings of depersonalization.

Patrick

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable......I simply, am not...there
