    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author spent too much time restating the storyline from the first book, presumably so you wouldn't need to read them in order but it was very tedious. This trend continued in the final book and really diminished my enjoyment. The first was definitely the best!

    Jack Gladney teaches Hitler studies at a liberal arts college in Middle America where his colleagues include New York expatriates who want to immerse themselves in "American magic and dread". Jack and his fourth wife, Babette, bound by love, fear of death, and four ultramodern offspring, navigate the usual rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. Then a lethal black cloud floats over their lives, an airborne "toxic event", an industrial accident.

    A User says: "HORRIBLE performance."
    "Very compelling!"

    What made the experience of listening to White Noise the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was spot on for the book. The characters were very well developed, believable and recognizable.


    What other book might you compare White Noise to and why?

    The angst of the father brings to mind some of John Irving's writing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were too many to pick one out. The father, our hero, had such a great voice every scene was well done.


    Who was the most memorable character of White Noise and why?

    Definitely, the father.


    Any additional comments?

    I plan to read more by Don DeLillo!!

    Winner of the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel and widely considered one of the most accomplished, powerful, and enduring classics of modern speculative fiction, Walter M. Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a true landmark of 20th-century literature—a chilling and still-provocative look at a postapocalyptic future.

    Joel says: "A Classic"
    "As good as it was 30 years ago!"
