Incisive, controversial and startlingly funny, The Rules of Attraction examines a group of affluent students at a small, self-consciously bohemian liberal-arts college on America’s East Coast.
Lauren, who changes the man in her bed even more often than she changes course, is dating Victor but sleeping with Sean.
Sean - cool, ambivalent and deeply cynical - might be in love with Lauren, but he’s not going to let that stop him from bedding Paul.
Paul, as shrewd as he is passionate, is Lauren’s ex-lover and the final point in this curious triangle.
From the author of American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction is a breathtaking tale of sex, expectation, desire and frustration.
"Inspired. A wonderfully comic novel." (Gore Vidal)

Heard this book was blacklisted somewhere sometime. Expected more after having read American Psycho many years ago.
Story is absent and is jumping in between I don't know how many characters - all of them as uninteresting as the others.
I can't find any reason to recommend this one.
Bret Easton Ellis par excellance
Listening to Rules of Attraction over and over again, never gets boring and I find new story-connections again and again.
I love the cross-references between the different Ellis books: Sean Bateman from Rules of Attraction is the brother of Patrick Bateman aka. American Psycho who debuts in this book.
Victor is one of main characters in Glamourama and even Clay whom you might know from Sub Zero has a chapter in this book before he becomes the Hollywood anti-hero of Imperial Bedrooms.
I only miss Paul and Lauren in the other books, I liked both characters in the movie. I hope Ellis decides to write a novel about what happened to them after their time in 'Camden'. Overall the book is a well told exaggerated story emphasizing the carelessness of a student life.
