White Noise by Don DeLillo
White Noise

Jake, September 12, 2006

My first time reading the work of Don Delillo... and let me tell you, it was an unforgettable experience. Generally, when you read a book, you are transferred to a world that is something you wouldn't have otherwise known if the author hadn't put it to paper. For Delillo, the world we are living in opens the more ovbious truths of common day maladies, structures, and symbolisms. From page to page, White Noise kept me thinking about my day-to-day life, post 9/11, and how we are kept in the age of both conscious consumerism and fear. For me, this book was a wave of vitality. I would whole-heartedly recommend White Noise to anyone that stops to think about the recent developments in their less-than-ordinary American life.
