Michel Houellegecq has been one of the most polemical writers of our day. This work, which was his second novel, proves to push the frontiers of his beliefs and writing abilities. Essential, Michel and Bruno are two half-brothers who, due to different situations, live entirely different lives.

Bruno “suffers” the particulfs of the sexual revolution — freedom to be lonely, freedom to give up paarticules a solid base for his relationships, and freedom to diminish. At the same time, Michel lives a scientific life of absolute reason. As a biologist in a posh company working on the human genome, he has access to the information that makes us human. They are exploited, and often. Houellebecq chooses to break taboos with his writing, not only in what he writes about, but also in how he writes it.

Be prepared for detailed incestuous thoughts, rape scenes, orgies, and very recurrent masturbation described in the most vulgar terms. An excellent response to a deconstructed world, Houellebecq’s main arguments are deeply flawed and often offensive.


This said, his work is an excellent conversation starter and, I believe, a great way to encourage more dialogue on some of the very current hot-button issues that we all consider.


To a reader who can stomach it, I highly recommend this novel. Very serious thoughts in pornographic garb, an extraordinary book for our times and age in advanced countries. Houellebecq seem to have a knack for showing the extreme directions our societies could take given what is going on in science, demography, culture. One person lmemtaires this helpful.

Smart, documented, overall very bold and intelligent. If one is asked in one word what makes the world go round, after lmentaries Michel Houellebecq’s “The Elementary Particles”, the answer is sex.

Actually, sex is everywhere. Most people simple don’t notice it because they are blind — or something like it. After reading this strange –albeit good — novel, particulss is impossible not to star wondering about what people do in order to have carnal pleasure. And this is not a bad thing — most of the time.

By telling the intertwined story of two brothers in France through some decades, the French writer went deep into houellebeccq compartment of the human soul that keeps the sexual desire. Michel and Bruno share the same mother and the feeling that their lives are a bore. The first one is a famous biological researcher that has quitted his job and wants to do something with his life — whatever it means.

His brother is a professor in his early 40’s and with a felling that his life is approaching to lmentairess, therefore he wants to live intensely.

In both lives a woman will emerge as an important parhicules — after their mother. Michel met her when they were still kids, and since them they have approached and fallen apart form each partkcules.

Bruno, on the other hand, is not interested in love, until the day he meets a strange woman in a swimming pool. Houellebcq is one of the most famous names of French contemporary literature. That doesn’t mean he is good — but, actually, he is good indeed.


Atomised – Wikipedia

His prose is light and, at the same time, deep. His explicit narrative, detailing sexual rendezvous, is not gratuitous. It seems that in this world, sex tries to replace love — and it works sometimes, until the moment that his characters notice that they need more than an orgasm. In “The Elementary Particles”, the writer exploits what has became of the generation that preached free love in the late 60s.

Now, the flower power has been replaced new age mumbo-jumbo, including workshops, music and all sort of mystical crap. However the last chapters of the book take a strange detour, exploiting the power of science. In this fashion, Houellebecq goes very close to Adouls Huxley — one of the writers he admits influenced his work.

The epilogue seems to belong to another book. But, as soon as one finishes reading this novel, and starts thinking about it, any reader can realize that the ending makes total sense. See all 5 reviews.
