This is the first DeLillo novel I had read, so I cannot compare it to any other of his works.
I feel that the movie itself, Cosmopolis, was very much misunderstood and poorly reviewed. Come on, forget that Robert Pattinson was in Twilight, and look at the movie for itself. Cronenberg is always a fascinating director, and all of the actors were superb. Pattinson and Giamatti towards the end of the movie are spellbinding in a ritual dance of cat and mouse (which is which, and when).
Overall, a little Hamlet, and a lot of 21st century zeitgeitz.
Delillo also has a wonderful sensitivity for words. He makes some fun observations here about the argot of the Internet and high tech culture. I had not before recognized what a quaint anachronism "Automated Teller Machine" is. Delillo treats his readers to a number of such observations about our language. I believe that Don Delillo's "Underworld" was without rival the best fictional work about America in the twentieth century. This is a much narrower work, but it displays the wit and penetration that shines in Delillo's best works.
