** spoiler alert ** This is the first DeLillo book i've read and while I can say I liked it, I must confess that I really have no idea what it's all about. Bookended by the tale of a man obsessively watching a art installation comprising of Hitchcock's Psycho slowed down to last 24 hours. In between this there is the story of a wanna-be documentarian who spends time at a war theologian's house trying to get him to commit to a film he wishes to make.

I know theres a point here, a theme i'm not getting. For the life of me however i cannot imagine what it is! Maybe a little research is in order. Anyway the prose is quite excellent, the story is intriguing at the least and as such I would definately recommend it, especially considering it's brief 117 page count.
