POINT OMEGA by Don DeLillo

My Thoughts:
I can't say I sought this book out, because I didn't. I had never even heard of Don DeLillo. I wanted a book that could give me a break, however small, from the classic I was reading. I decided to choose the book just by its cover, and chose this book without knowing what it was about, and without wanting to. I was going to read it regardless. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I was pleasantly surprised. DeLillo's writing style, at least in POINT OMEGA, made this book an easy read. I was completely sucked into the setting he created, and found myself more watching the book in my mind than reading the words. DeLillo has a way of bringing each action to life, no matter how mundane. The story is unique to me and I enjoyed it throughly. POINT OMEGA doesn't spell everything out for you; it leaves you with more questions than answers, but I liked that about it. It felt completed, yet completely unfinished. An interesting little read.
