I am 50 pages in to this absolutely delightful book. White Noise is a post modern novel that details the life of a College on the Hill professor, Jack Gladney. Although Jack doesn't speak any German, he has staked his career as an expert in the field of Hitler studies. Jack has been married multiple times and lives with his current wife Babette and kids/step-kids Heinrich, Denise, Steffie and Wilder.
50 pages into the book we seem to be still within the character development stage of the book. Rumor has it that there is going to be some big Airborne Toxic Event.
