A rich parody of the parallels between the jargon of football and the jargon of battle - and a touch of cold war existentialism - makes this powerful novel as hilarious as it is relevant. Ostensibly, DeLillo's blackly comic second novel is about Gary Harkness, a football player and student at Logos College, West Texas. During a season of unprecedented success, Gary becomes increasingly obsessed with the threat of nuclear war. Both frightened and fascinated by the prospect, he listens to his team-mates discussing match tactics in much the same terms as generals might contemplate global conflict. But as the terminologies of football and nuclear war - the language of end zones - become interchanged, the polysemous nature of words emerges, and DeLillo forces us to see beyond the sterile reality of substitution. This clever and playful novel is a timeless and topical study of human beings' obsession with conflict and confrontation.… (més)

(not sure I understand how this book works)
I wish I could rate books w/decimals or 1/10 scores, because I've got a really bittersweet feeling over this one, albeit recognizing it as a good book. I just... think there are better options to explain these themes.
I loved the snow moment and everything Myna-related though. ( )

This is my first DeLillo. I loved it. I'll probably read Underworld next, or White Noise. Can't wait. ( )

You don't have to like football to like this book...trust me. ( )

Oddly enough, this slight existential sports novel is the Delillo book I think about most. Maybe it's the earnest young people splitting their time between playing football and pontificating out of their depth that does it for me. ( )

Distinctive and darkly humorous look at the intersection of football and thermonuclear war and the rituals and neuroses of both. DeLillo's distinctive and lovely prose style also benefits the book - this early work shows some of the techniques he would develop much later. ( )
