White Noise is an awesome, scathing commentary on contemporary American mass culture. There's plenty of critical analysis on this topic with respect to the novel and Delillo, so I won't go into it for this review.
For the younger generation, Fight Club is a good comparison considering theme and subject matters.
Prichard has a decent voice, but he has a particular lack of style. He reads too slowly, unnaturally so. That, and he pauses way too long between sentences. Whatever tension might have been built into the narrative looses it's energy and impact as a result. Personally, I'm actually a pretty slow reader myself, reading at about the same pace that I can read aloud, so anything slower than that is difficult to manage, which if I had a hard time with it, I can see anyone else having a harder time with it.
