A most interesting read – this book is SOOO not for people, though. To call the primary freak, Eric Packer, “morally bankrupt” is a really bad pun (as well as trite and incomplete). He is deliciously depraved, arrogant, envy, precise, powerful, searching and bored. Watching him almost totally alter over the course of the 24-the hunts described by the book is a fascinating journey. After study others’ reviews of this work, I’m beginning to believe that the achievement of approval / acceptance / insusceptibility for this book shown by the other reporters is directly connected to whether or not they identify with Eric. The fact that he does come to examine his career in a meaningful elbowroom offers hope in a pretty overcast work. In my opinion, DeLillo is a miniaturist. His elegance is deliberate – almost intentionally off-putting, and for me, captivating. I took my time study this (what – eight occasions?!? WTH!) because I didn’t want it to end, and I wanted to savor and understand each scenario.
This book bids very interesting text to what is known of Mary Magdalene and her relationship with Jesus. Historical dopes about Jewish life & customs during the time in which Jesus lived adds a level of sympathetic that goes beyond anything that many modern-day Christian faiths offer. It speaks to the empathy of the individuals in this story.
