DeLillo's super-goofy book concerns the problem of heightened consciousness --in the medium of the junk mass communication, junk consumerism, and junk academics that we're all living in now --leading to existential problems, and at the end, a pretty goofy attempt to reconcile those problems with decisive experience.
But don't let the super-silly characters' absurd story deter you in the beginning. DeLillo's prose is, as always, extremely beautiful, full of information-packed APPOSITIVES, as an English-teacher friend has informed me it's called, that writers like me love to copy off him. Read the book for the prose, stay for the philosophy. I think Babette's dad is the best character, so stick around for him.
The book builds pretty slow so lazy, "post-literate" or admittedly illiterate people need not apply. The last third's payoff is brilliant. ( )

Surely the best book about supermarkets ever written

This is a great book, but it took me three tries over five years to finally read it all the way through. It's immensely quotable, fascinatingly post-modern and bordering on surreal because it is so heightened and odd. I would highly recommend it, and I'd love to see it as a movie some day. I imagine that most other people who pick it up for fun are more likely to actually read it all the way through on the first go... ( )

White Noise is a novel I can appreciate intellectually, but it is not one that I enjoyed reading. It is filled with incredibly beautiful sentences and sharp satire, both of which I enjoyed. But it was flat, intentionally flat, but flat nonetheless. I know this is the point. There is no difference in the cadence and emotional resonance of the different voices -- as if the world exists on a flattened plain. I cannot say it is a collection of beautiful sentences without a plot, because there is a plot, even though it is not a plot-driven story. In fact, I am not convinced it is a story at all.

I think White Noise is an excellent representation of a particular moment in the post-modern absurdist mindset. A part of me remembers being a student of literature, remembers studying twentieth century literature. I think of DeLillo as an heir to Barth but I may have appreciated Barth's humor more. While I was reading, I could not help being struck by the cruelty of its intellectual conceit -- the cold sardonicism, the deliberate mocking tone. DeLillo was writing about how modern invention had created a simulacrum of life, hence the flatness. Reading this novel brought to mind the philosophy of Baudrillard, which I had been quite happy not to think about for some 40 years. In the end I think DeLillo wrote a simulacrum of a novel, although it did prove good fodder for discussion in my book group. ( )

Tonight I had the worst beer I've ever tasted. I finished it because I bought it. I drank it quickly to be done with it. At least it gave me a buzz.

I'll finish this book slowly...

Done. Not a book I enjoyed at all. This is one of those "good" books I should have left on the shelf for a Lit major to enjoy. ( )

The book is so funny, so mysterious, so right, so disturbing … and yet so enjoyable it has somehow survived being cut open for twenty-five years by critics and post-grads. All of that theoretical poking and prodding, all of that po-mo-simulacra-ambiguity vivisection can’t touch the thrill of reading it
 
''White Noise,'' his eighth novel, is the story of a college professor and his family whose small Midwestern town is evacuated after an industrial accident. In light of the recent Union Carbide disaster in India that killed over 2,000 and injured thousands more, ''White Noise'' seems all the more timely and frightening - precisely because of its totally American concerns, its rendering of a particularly American numbness.
