Michel Houellebecq: Atomised Michel Houellebecq: Atomised

Half-brothers Michel and Bruno have a mother in common but little else. Michel is a molecular biologist, a thinker and idealist, a man with no erotic life to speak of and little in the way of human society. Bruno, by contrast, is a libertine, though more in theory than in practice, his endless lust is all too rarely reciprocated. Both are symptomatic members of our atomised society, where religion has given way to shallow 'new age' philosophies and love to meaningless sexual connections.

Atomised (Les Particules elementaires) tells the stories of the two brothers, but the real subject of the novel is in its dismantling of contemporary society and its assumptions, in its political incorrectness, and its caustic and penetrating asides on everything from anthropology to the problem pages of girls' magazines. A dissection of modern lives and loves. By turns funny, acid, infuriating, didactic, touching and visceral.

The Elementary Particles címmel is megjelent.

Michel Houellebecq: Atomised

Nem volt könnyű olvasmány és biztos, hogy újraolvasom majd később, mert annyi gondolat van benne, hogy elsőre nem tudtam igazán a mélyére ásni. Sejtem, hogy jó könyv és megér legalább még egy olvasást.
