White Noise – Don DeLillo

This was my first book by Don Delillo. White Noise starts off strong: a quirky, satirical family + an airborne toxic event + an evacuation + impending death and destruction. The first half of the book was brilliant but it took a very drastic turn down from there. The last 150 pages contained a few interesting lines on mortality and death but not much more than that. It became somewhat painful to finish.
While I will certainly read more of DeLillo’s works, I wouldn’t recommend White Noise.
Are there any books that come to mind with a strong start but you had to trudge through to finish?
Any of DeLillo’s other books that I should check out?

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
