Read from January 03 to 16, 2012

I liked this book it made me laugh. Although the ending did leave me flat.

DeLillo has a good time making fun of American Society. I love that fact that he makes fun of academic society. The whole Hitler Studies program is so perfect. I mocks a lot of areas of study that the university comes up with. Jack's sunglasses, his earnest desire to learn German and all the professors wearing robes is very funny.

I also like the way Delilo takes on our society of divorces, remarriages, and step-siblings. He also makes fun of our need to find drugs to make our every little pain real or psyche go away.

A good read if you are feeling like something fun. I have to go take my Dylar now.
