The author is trying to make a statement about the consequences of our society's dependence on technology as an intermediary in human relations. I get it. The first chapter was bizarre, the second gory, but by the time he gets to chapter three, the book is not "horrific" as described by some critics. It's just plain horrible. The author's attempt to shock became boring. I stopped there. The torture in the book was quite enough. I saw no need to torture myself as well. In all fairness, I have just finished "American Psycho." The atrocities in "Crash" pale by comparison.
