Point Omega: A Novel | Don DeLillo
post image
Pickpick

“Why is it so hard to be serious,so easy to be too serious?”The title comes from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Omega point:the maximum level of complexity & conscious towards which the universe appears to be evolving. A short bk w/ a retired war advisor & a young film maker ,who wants to make a film about him.In conversation in a remote retreat in the desert,their talks made me ponder if we are missing life in the endless static of our modern world.

I was swamped with guests and did not finish in time for #NYRBbookclub discussion,I just finished last night.Gothic & Atmospheric,I kept trying to figure out is it good twin /evil twin or something else all together?I also wanted the adults to pay attention to the children,maybe they wouldn‘t be so weird!

vivastory I actually raised my rating after rereading it. I thought it was a great Halloween read. I don't know if you saw my message, but I need to touch base with you about the Nov discussion. Are you on Goodreads? 5d

From a library sale today.Most were a buck , one was 50 cents.Shout out to @emilyhaldi the Stephen King is a first edition, sadly no dust jacket , plucked from in front of a scanner person.No barcode on this one , even if it was dust jacketed.😃👍

writerlibrarian Tana French's The Likeness is quite good. Slow paced, dark good. 5d
emilyhaldi Ha!! Way to outsmart the scanners!!! 🙌🏻 First edition is a great find 🤩 5d
Leftcoastzen @writerlibrarian I need to read her first one , she gets so much Litsy love I‘m pretty sure I will love her books. 5d
writerlibrarian @Leftcoastzen they are only loosely connected. I found the first book good but terribly depressing and so so dark. But i understand how one needs to read in order because I do that too. (edited) 5d
