Not a great read.
Somethings are never easy. Like reading a book because it got great reviews but then turn out to be mediocre. That is what happened with Don Delillo's Cosmopolis.
The entire book describes a day in the life or Eric, an 28-year-old billionaire, who is cynic and has his mind on two things; sex and money.
I can understand why it was a big deal when it was published and why it was adapted into a movie but I failed to see the point. We are materialistic and consumed by technology. Our lives evolve around our career and we fail to see anything that matters like love.
OK. Anyone could see these simple messages but I wanted something more. Then again that was the writers intention.to just get your gears spinning.
I will say though that even though it can become rather dull, towards the end I was intrigued. I did not know what was going to happen and I can say that the most interesting thing about the book is the cliffhanger at the end.
So for those that love cliffhangers, like me, and are left thinking what might happen, my advice is read this book. You will get past the tenacious and cynic writing just because you know you are going to be rewarded in the last chapter.
For me Cosmopolis is worth 6/10 stars.
Enjoy and Happy Reading!
