it was ok
bookshelves: dcpl_elibrary, fiction

This is a very conceptual novella, moreso than I expected. The plot slowly disintegrates, and you spend the back half with three people who are together but talking past one another.

I read a couple of reviews that spend more time explaining the plot and making asides about modernity than they do providing any criticism, which makes me think we’re all supposed to like this just because it’s Delillo. Can’t say I recommend it.
