About This Item

Their time is certainly not spent in classrooms pursuing academic goals. They waste time getting wasted; they go from Thirsty Thursday Happy Hours to Dressed to Get Screwed parties; and they move from person to person propelled only by a fleeting sense of attraction. With no plans for the future - or even the present - three students become involved in a curious romantic triangle: Lauren, who changes boyfriends every time she changes majors; Paul, who is forthrightly bisexual and whose passion masks a shrewd pragmatism; and Sean, whose ambivalence and cynicism conceaal deep romanting yearnings. Through their voices, the author tells a poignant, often hilarious tal eo campus absurdities, crushing frustrations, and adolescent dreams fueled by a desperate - and unspoken - need for love.

Synopsis

The Rules of Attraction is a 1987 dark comedy and satirical novel by Bret Easton Ellis. The novel focuses on a handful of rowdy and often sexually promiscuous Bohemian college students at a liberal arts college in 1980s New England, primarily focusing on three of them who find themselves in a love triangle. The novel is written in first person narrative, and the story is told from the points of view of various characters. The book was adapted into a film of the same name in 2002.
