User reviews about this book
By Exiled Texan
Brilliant writing. But dead. DeLillo writes characters as though he hoped never to have to meet or know any of them. Useful puppets. They make the arguments he wants to make about the artificiality of modern consumer society. They—and the events DeLillo drags us through—are otherwise without either depth or interest.

I alternate between thinking he is so brilliantly funny or on some sort of drug. Weird and wonderful , but surely not everyone’s cup of tea. You have to “get it”.
By Am book reader
wow! what an amazing book. a true classic. love the character development. plot is strange, but the writing superb.
Possibly DeLillo Best
Thoroughly hilarious, clever and exceptionally creative/imaginative. Profoundly affecting.
My favorite book
Constantly mesmerizing. The whole book is a highlight. Highlights within highlights. Godlike prose. Narration and dialogue. All characters. Hysterical arid-sarcasm. So much so, I wonder how many pick up on it. Not one to wolf down. Chew slowly, let it stick to the palette, marinate the mind. I've read it 5 times. Not nearly enough.
It's not written to excite you.
It's written to make you think about the direction of our culture. Do we even notice catastrophic events any more? What would DeLillo say about today's social media craze?
A must read
I loved this book the first time I read it, it's by far DeLillo's best work. If you like clever, witty books this will surely become your favorite. I wish they'd make a movie out of this book -- get the Coen brothers to adapt and direct it. Instant best picture of the decade. Yet as great as that would be to see, just reading the book, with DeLillo's brilliant prose, is the best entertainment to be found. I assure you that your iPad is woefully incomplete without "White Noise" in you iBook-shelf.
