Once again, DeLillo comes through with his uncanny ability to describe. Painting pictures with equal emphasis, be it a sandwich or a terrorist plot, I am really beginning to enjoy his even-handedness in storytelling; it feels to me like he respects me enough as a reader that he will present everything on the same plane and trust me to sort out what is important, rather than cramming it down my throat. Players sits somewhere between a mystery and a maudlin character study, as though Yates or Oates were writing a Martin Ames story. I wouldn't exactly call it a page turner, but it was a really easy book to sink into and enjoy.
