    " This is a very small book that I hardly recall reading. I gave this rating three stars, but I may have enjoyed it a little more than that. "

    " Oh, DeLillo, your seem to break my heart every other book, and piss me off with the ones in between. For me, it's he and Nabokov for beautiful prose. Man, Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is just an awful book. "
