Don DeLillo's Underworld: A Reader's Guide Reviews

    A very helpful guide to Delillo's massive doorstop of a book. Unlike the Continuum guide to "White Noise," I felt like I actually got a bit more out of the source text for reading this. The author connected several elements that actually helped sharpen my thinking while I work on the review for "Underworld." At the same time, it's still a study guide written to a template, and so it's hard to give it anything more than a "liked it" rating. If you've recently read "Underworld" and want a coherent (if not terribly daring) opinion about it, give this a shot.

    UnderwordedAre all the monographies in this series so good? I wish all monographies were.Concise, clear, sharp, well-written. Makes me yearn for more, and it would get 4 stars if only it were longer. Although, even short as it is, the author at times gives the impression of having done all the thinking for the reader.A few typos.

    This guide helped me somewhat understand Underworld. Mostly it just reminded me of a bunch of things I had forgotten by the time I finally made my way through it.

    One of the most depressing books I have ever read ... only part I liked was a recap of the Brooklyn Dodger NY Giants game in 1951 when Bobby Thomson hit his homerun ... rest of it was rather morbid

    Brian recommended this book to me as a 'gateway' to DeLillo.
