New Customer Review - Cosmopolis

by Don DeLillo [DeLillo]

I picked up this book, not unlike many others, because I heard about the movie. I found this book to be vastly more interesting than the summary lead on, and the pacing made it a quick, and exciting read. I think some people didn't like this book because it was a little abstract, but that's what I loved about it. It had a way of making you think about modern society. The book's weaknesses were probably the setting, being in a limo, because most people assumed that would be boring. The book's strength would come from the tone and pacing. -- review submitted by Erin H. - a volunteer at the Bennett Martin Public Library
