    " Perhaps I need to go back and reread it and devote more time to it, but I don't think I entirely understood what was going on... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 3/18/2011

    " Ugh. The only reason I finished the book is because it was so short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 2/28/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett | 1/29/2011

    " 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. "
