Very obviously a first novel, even though it shows signs of Houellebecq’s later skill in analyzing what truly connects us to our fellow man.

Ampliacion del campo de batalla

To admirers he is a writer in the tradition of literary provocation that reaches back to the Marquis de Sade and Baudelaire; to detractors he is a peddler, who writes vulgar sleazy literature to shock.

I don’t understand him nor I find his life philosophy so intriguin French kissing? Not sure whether the translation was too poor or if it was just pointless.

Since most other favorable reviews were written in other languages, I’m giving Houllebecq the benefit of the doubt and blaming the translator for any problems the book may have. I mean, this book is like the quintessence of how French intellectualoids must think, or at least the words they use. All protagonists have similar problems loneliness, a sexuality, social awkwardness, money issues, psychological therapy and sedatives Inner thoughts and dubiousness.

I get it, Houellebecq’s tired of the niceties of existence and is looking for something more vibrant, something to wake him up out of his stupor. It’s really just a series of stuff that happens, with the simultaneously narcissistic yet self-loathing protagonist as the common denominator.

Whatever–that’s a good title.

Refresh and try again. A critique of society, that supposed to be his main forte, is flat and banal.

The partner in crime of our anti-hero is Raphael, the misfit IT-er who can never get a girl and even fails in stabbing one in houellebwcq misplaced jealousy crisis. En general se hace muy pesado todo el libro y mira que es corto.

The book does not have a cohesive plot, it is told entirely from the point of view of a 30 something year old man who happens to work with computers, who is a bit of a loner and who is obviously headed for a break down something the people appear to enjoy is first person break downs While there are some funny quotes in the book “the tale was usually told with a slight ironic smile; yet there was nothing to laugh about; these days the purchase of a houelldbecq does present enormous difficulties, enough to drive you to suicide” having just bought new TV I can appreciate this sentiment I found it to be largely distasteful particulary in the descriptions of women and sex.

It’s not that it’s unfailingly negative about the future and of society as it is today because that’s what I enjoyed most from his writings and is a key theme in all his work. Una brutta copia della Nausea. A lot of the other reviews say it’s funny, but it’s not written as comedy. The problem with first person narrators is that if you are spending time inside the head of a character you don’t like it makes the whole book rather unpleasant experience.

I was told this book is very funny, but I’m almost halfway through and still waiting for it to actually make me laugh.

Yup, that’s about it. Overall, not my cup of tea. When you close the book, you realise your life is empty, and that you should commit suicide right now. It’s as if Houellebecq has placed these nihilistic masterpieces to our time well, the nineties. He is dissatisfied with the world, finds most woman vile, and doesn’t seem to have any friends.


There’s houeolebecq science fiction, no art criticism, no social commentary, just chain-smoking, unpleasant bar-hopping, and being bad at your job. Lists with This Book. The book excels in the description of attending one’s own life, or what the hero perceives as the life of IT-ers: At least, I don’t think there are. Giving up on it.

The French title is Extension de domain de la luttewhich translates to something like ‘broadening the field of struggle’. The thin, somewhat bored sexual tension is perhaps the most animated part of the book. In the same time constantly whining how the only woman in his life that mattered was selfish and damag This is my first Houellebecq so I still give him the benefit of doubt.

I guess I am not young enough, disaffected enough or caustic enough to appreciate this, that said with no idea of the French literary scene I will have to accept that it deserves its place on the list for inspiring a whole new generation of writers heres hoping I never have to read them With at least 1 big difference: This is my first Houellebecq so I still give him the benefit of doubt.

To admirers he is a writer in the tradition of literary houellebrcq that reaches back to the Marquis de Sade and Baudelaire; to detractors he is a peddler, who writes vulgar sleazy literature to shock. Not my favorite Michel Houellebecq, but still dd interesting read.

Or maybe even Platform. If this is you – enjoy it in spades!
