    Love this review – why did you persevere? I’m intrigued.

      I had had two books I decided not to finish in the same week and didn’t want to wimp out. And since the DeLillo, I’ve had another one that I have decided not to finish.

    Not my cup of tea either but I didn’t invest as much time as you did in coming to that conclusion.

    [J] F’d because it is tagged a NYT Bestseller? It’s difficult to completely dismiss such things! Well, sugar and salt are best sellers, and they too have their limitations!

      I think for people who like DeLillo’s style, it is probably a pretty amazing book.

    Never fancied this, and the reviews haven’t changed my mind! That’s the usefulness of book blogs, saving one from oneself!

    I think I gave up on this one around page 50. So boring. And I liked White Noise!

    It had a very cold, sterile quality to it and I had trouble with the flashbacks. I rushed through it to be done with it. I guess I kept hoping it would get better.

      Cold and sterile is exactly right.

    I can understand completely. Too cool for its own good – I didn’t like it but did find it fascinating which was why I persevered I think.
