Falling Man: A Novel

Falling Man - Don DeLillo Very disappointing, with two-dimensional characters who might be going through any traumatic event—as such, it felt almost as if 9/11 was being exploited by DeLillo here, especially as the depth is more superficial than incisive. The only saving grace of the book is the last section which is masterfully done and shows a sincere sense of humanity, compassion, and how interlocked all our lives truly are that the rest of the book lacks.
