To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The prose is excellent and the first two chapters got me invested. Unfortunately, the remainder of the book (which tries to pass itself as a novel rather than a novella! Ha!) is rather scant and uninteresting. 128 pages of relatively little content in a rather large font, mostly just recounting how the protagonist takes advantage of a seemingly-handicapped man. Maybe I'd have more to say if I'd read some if DeLillo's other work, but I have not and I can't say I'm particularly interested in doing so. The book tries to present this erudite and complex concept while also describing the protagonist taking (and I quote) "a raging crap" and I just can't take it that seriously.
