This is probably a long shot, but has anyone here read this? I like to think I'm somewhat good at understanding "deep" books, but this one totally confused the hell out of me toward the end. It's supposedly a comedy about a professional model who is slowly drawn into a group of international terrorists/models. I guess it might have been funnier pre-9/11, there's a really graphic description (like, literally, about 20 pages long) that takes place inside a plane that explodes and crashes that I really had to try about four times before I could get through. The other thing that makes it not so funny is the same problem I have with all of Bret Easton Ellis' work. He seems to just barely touch on descriptions of important plot details or character motivations, then he'll devote page after page to very graphic descriptions of probably some of the most twisted and gross sex scenes and violent death scenes I've ever read, and it makes him come across as a total freak. But, like I said, if anyone else has read it, please help me understand what was going on in there in the last 50 pages or so.
