This is the first novel I've read that writes about 9/11/01 from a survivor's POV. (At least partially. It's also told from the POV of his wife and one of the hijackers.) The book drew me in, but I wouldn't necessarily say I enjoyed it. I've not read anything by DeLillo before, so I don't know whether the choppy, disjointed style is usual for him or dictated by the subject matter. Either way, it made it difficult for me to fully connect to the main characters. I felt like the book moved in a jerky way, no flow.
