Confusing, elitist, disappointing. The only reason that I believe this book ever received any positive reviews is that critics were too embarrassed to admit they had no clue as to what the book was about.
No one talks the way the characters in this book do, the story is disjointed, the characters are not likable in any way and the ending is totally unsatisfying.
Stay away from this book at all costs.

The book End Zone is a very interesting book. Don DeLillo writes End Zone. The book seems like it would be about football, but it focuses just as much on nuclear war. I really enjoyed the book because I love reading books that go into lots of detail. You know the kind of books that take 5 pages to describe a football game. The parallelism between football and nuclear war was a little new to me. I didn't really understand why nuclear war was a part of a football book but by the end of the book I had figured it out. This was a great book to read and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a little different to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The story starts out without the explicit definitions of who people are and their role on the team. You know exactly where they stand in society but as far as the leadership or dependability they carry. Not to mention the position most of them play or who else plays that position but is not starting. This could have helped to explain why some of the incidents that occurred, happened. on a more positive note the book had a much valuable lesson that many could use as far as the respectability and reliability amongst others, and how its important in life as well as sports.Was this review helpful?
