it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction
Read in March, 2009

This is the best book I've read all year and I hope it stays that way for awhile. It's about sept 11th, but it's DeLillo so it doesn't seem like he's taking advantage of the past to further his literary career. He's an amazing story teller and Falling Man was unbelievable. I read a lot of crap and I sometimes forget how good literature can be. The writing is flawless and at times poetic and the story is not compelled by a plot, it's driven by its characters and their development. It's amazing. And the audio version is ridiculously good.

Ren the Unclean This comment is not directly related to the book:

It sort of disgusts me that it is even possible to take advantage of Sept. 11th almost 8 years after the fact. Thanks, Bush Administration, for not letting our country move on.

Never Forget indeed.

Kristiana Another cool thing about the book is there's a group of seniors who are in a writing group, but they all have dimentia. The whole time you realize that they are forgetting things they would never want to to forget and it's a nice parallel to the crap of never forgetting.
