I first read this probably about 20 years ago. I remembered very little about it, other than a couple of details about the speaker and the basic facts about one of the big events in the story. More than anything, it's the prose that wins the day in this book. The characters are caricatures, the plot I could care less about. But the sentences are really great, which I guess is a weird thing to say. This is the best shorter DeLillo I've read. ( )

Pairs well with Tim Hecker. ( )

Pretty good, but also kind of weird. The prose and dialogue seemed out of place sometimes, occasionally the novel didn't flow as smoothly as it could have, and the frequent sexual references were unnecessary. Nonetheless, the view of death in this novel is an interesting concept, albeit one with which I don't particularly agree. ( )

I loved this and I understand how some - many - of the reviewers did not. I have to think for a bit about the ending, not sure what to make of it but I'm OK with that. Everything does not need to be wrapped up with a bow. Well-written and very funny. I know some of these characters in real life, I think. ( )

I really loved DeLillo's writing-- so witty, dark, but funny as hell. Jack's and Babette's family dynamics were captured perfectly and seemed so universal and familiar even though their specific story and family structure was fairly unusual. So I would like to read more DeLillo just to get some more of his writing.

However, I found the plot(s) to be disjointed and although the primary theme of fear and death swirled around the plot(s) nothing really ever stuck for me. Enjoyable while reading, but I felt cheated that the story didn't really end and there were so many loose ends. Intentional? Remininscent of life and death? I don't know. ( )

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.
