    1. (Η κριτική περιέχει ενύπνια ψιχία αποκαλύψεων πλοκής). Ο κλονισμός των κλωνοποιημένων •Θα μπορούσαμε να πούμε ότι συνολικά 12 σωματίδια αποτελούν τους βασικούς δομικούς λίθους του σύμπαντος, από τη γέννησή του μέχρι σήμερα. Όχι ακριβώς! Η σύγχρονη θεωρία που περιγράφει τον [...]

    2. You can interpret this book in several different ways. A lot of people view it as a depressing, hate-filled rant, filled with a really startling amount of unpleasant sex. I'm not saying that that's necessarily incorrect. In fact, my immediate association was with the fictitious books that Moreland invents in one of the Anthony Powell novels: "Seated One Day at my Organ", by the author of "One Hundred Disagreeable Sexual Experiences". But I think there are more interesting ways of reading Les Par [...]

    3. "It's a curious idea to reproduce when you don't even like life." It's rare to come across a book filled with so pure of hate. At first I thought maybe it's was just some good old fashioned misogyny, with maybe a little bit of nationalism and Arab hating thrown in, but then something curious happened, the whole of society got thrown into the hate-fest that is this book. Hippies? Hate them a lot. Italians? Yep, really hate them, we don't say why we just do. Nature? Fuck it!! Sex? Love it but hate [...]

    4. Wow. What an incredible book. The Epilogue makes a huge difference in how one might view it on the whole. It certainly did for me. I was getting so depressed by the end that I almost chucked it aside around the 90% mark because I felt a panic attack coming on. But I took a deep breath and I switched up my reading soundtrack and I pushed on and am very glad that I did. The Epilogue really clarifies so much that precedes it. Leading up to that point it is basically 100% bleak, and I mean truly, tr [...]

    5. Okay, I decided I would take a go at actually justifying my rating for this book, rather than just make half-hearted apologies at my preference for a so-absurdly misogynistic and, let's be frank, pornographic novel. First of all, I like Houellebecq's unrelenting pessimism. It's far beyond nihlism - so more destructive and negative, so more emphatic in its rejection of bougeoise norms, of religion, culture, capitalism. This book (as well as the other Houellebecq I read, Platform) captures the ble [...]

    6. Extraordinary, outstanding, absolutely not-to-be-missed*!* "The Elementary Particles" holds you captive like only the best of 'em can. Think-- a long, cold autumn afternoon sipping coffee and reading "Never Let Me Go." Think-- Dan Brown# poolside. All of these experiences that could conceivably last one blissful, insatiable sitting (the novels that are not considered novellas, that is)-- this is one of 'em. The artistry is like a painting, the reading is like some immersive exercise that blends [...]

    7. Years ago, I went out on a few dates with a French guy. He was rich and good looking (though, of course, way too short), and he seemed pretty smart but I never could bring myself to kiss him. He had this typically Gallic extreme snottiness that I found amusing, even endearing, but even as I enjoyed this I suspected that his disdain for everything non-French might indicate something a bit too dark for me. At a certain point I decided that he wasn't a regular charming misanthrope: I discerned that [...]

    8. This book brought me to laughter. And this is not a compliment, but actually quite the opposite.Every character here is monodimensional and unrealistic, while the story itself is ridicolous. Blame me if you like, but after the tenth masturbation scene filled up with philosophical rubbish and Andre Gide quotes I've felt a big nausea coming up. And this malaise stayed with me till the end of the novel. There are many novelists who have their own obsession for sex and some of them are consistently [...]

    9. I wish I was able to write a more detailed reaction to this novel, but I feel nothing. Not in the sense of 'poetic existential despair' nothing, but total non-commitment.These cynical rants against humanity are really all the same, aren't they? Occasionally you find one with at least some stylistic flair and originality, like Céline's, but here I see failed edgy attempts to shock with bad sex, loneliness, and a touch of misogyny. So fucking what? I'd go read Reddit comments if I wanted to read [...]

    10. Imagine a stylish French man, grumpily smoking a lung-shreddingly strong cigarette and repeating in his thick accent variations on the phrase ‘Life, she is shit’.That is this novel, and author Michel Houellebecq is a dishevelled version of that Frenchman.If you’ve read Whatever, or The possibility of an Island, or indeed any of Houellebecq’s work you know what a cheerless sourpuss he can be. His characters, inevitably middle aged Frenchmen, usually live lives of despair and ennui, (often [...]

    11. Gratuitous sex. For those who have read this book, it’s not a surprising initial comment. The sex in The Elementary Particles is graphic, drawn-out, and explicit. Yet the novel has such an intellectual draw that even at its most seemingly uncalled for, I believe Houellebecq had a purpose for it. Through the suffering of two brothers—Bruno whose libido is painfully (and often shamefully) intense, and Michel who has virtually no interest in sex—Houellebecq depicts mankind’s struggle with m [...]

    12. Daringly original and yes, ludicrously filthy!, but for anyone that thinks this is just three hundred and eighty pages of Masturbating, blow-jobs and debauchery your missing the point, as there are far more serious things going on here than spanking the monkey! and alike. Michel Houellebecq has written a work of great intelligence and maturity that is nihilistic in nature and immensely sad but was always compulsive reading. Concerning French half-brothers Michel and Bruno where the only thing th [...]

    13. The way Houellebecq combines science and sociology is amazingly intelligent and deliciously dizzying. Asexuality and sex addiction, the two offsprings of the sexual liberation of the 60s, are envisioned by the French author in a marriage whose fruit seems to be extremely Nietzschean. I must admit I got completely carried away, while the trick he pullled in the epilogue had me looking for my mind cause yeah, I suddenly felt it missing.Amazing stuff.

    14. This is the second Houellebecq novel that I have read. Usually when I talk about why I like novels it usually has to do with the great characters that I identified with or the amazing plot or the entertaining action. Houellebecq provides none of these things. In fact, while I was reading this book, my daughter asked me what the book was about and I went uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. His characters are unhappy and disfunctional. Houellebecq's books create controversy to the point that he has ended up in cou [...]

    15. The longueur of French academic life. The pain of being 40 and unfuckable. Something about quantum physics. It's all here in this eggheady gloom festival.

    16. This book is a stunning surprise to me as I was properly prepared to dislike it before I picked it up. Although I was determined to finish the book, I was not prepared for what a wonderful book this is. This book is a consummate sociological description and commentary of the second half of the twentieth century's social revolution in western culture. The psychology isn't too bad either.Because it is a work of fiction, I interpret it as a grand sociological critique, with some fictional leeway, o [...]

    17. Oh God. I'm about half way through this book, which I picked up on a whim after finishing the excellent Blindness by Jose Saramago. I needed something else to read until I got a copy of Dave Eggers' What is the What, and this had got a lot of raves.So far, I'm as close to tossing this book away unfinished as I have ever been. I almost always finish books, but this is just a chore.As offensive as parts of it are (yes, yes, I'm supposed to be offended, and I can see the ambiguity about whether the [...]

    18. When the Middle Class Aspires to Cold NihilismWell, it seems there is hardly any point in contributing an other review, when so many people think "The Elementary Particles" ("Atomised" in the UK) is a "powerful," "unflinching" book. But it brought Houellebecq into the public eye and set the stage for his later books, so it's worth reconsidering.I think it's weak: weaker than all of the models he attempts to emulate.If you want genuine existential disorientation, read Sartre. If you want intransi [...]

    19. Em 2015 li dois romances do escritor francês Michel Houellebecq (n. 1956): a ”Extensão do Domínio da Luta” (1994) (4*) o seu primeiro romance e ”Submissão” (2015) (4*) o seu último romance. Em ambas as obras – apesar de temáticas díspares – a narrativa e a escrita criativa, suscitaram múltiplas leituras e variadas interpretações, revelando Michel Houellebecq como um dos mais originais e controversos escritores da actualidade. Em ”As Partículas Elementares” (1998), o se [...]

    20. Damn! I've had this for years, only read it recently, wished I'd read it long ago. Totally brilliant. Purposefully vicious and perverted to make philosophical points about the unhappy state of humanity. Juxtaposition of many sagging labias and licked cocks (which sadly might turn idiots off) with mucho genetics-related philosophizing (which sadly might turn idiots off). A book about the achievement of utopia, sort of like Huxley's BNW and Island, which the book deals with. Another uber-pessimist [...]

    21. The universe is merely a chance arrangement of elementary particles. A transitory image in the midst of chaos. Which will end with the inevitable: the human race will disappear. Other races will appear, and disappear in turn. The heavens are cold and empty, traversed by the faint light of half-dead stars. Which, also, will disappear. Everything disappears. And human actions are just as random and senseless as the movements of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, fine sentiments? Pure “V [...]

    22. Suelo leer solo libros clásicos, pero en esta ocasión he apostado por este autor contemporáneo del que llevaba bastante tiempo escuchando hablar.Para mí ha sido una sorpresa descubrir a Michel HouellebecqDicen que es el "enfant terrible" de la actual literatura francesa. Dicen que es la única estrella literaria desde Sartre. No sé si es para tanto (no creo), pero el libro es muy original. Algo desestructurado, pero me gusta que sea así. Narra la historia de dos hermanos, un científico ra [...]

    23. Ммм, да почти 400 страници за почти два дни. Не можах да я оставя!Първо да кажа, че тук има толкова много секс, извращения, страст, задоволяване на плътски щения и нагони, толкова подробно и прецизно описани сцени, че по едно време стигам до един цитат от Пруст и вместо "простота [...]

    24. The Elementary Particles wasn’t an easy read – it required long breaks in between and an even longer walk after I finished it. The book put me in all possible moods – I cried and laughed and felt sad, then was ignorant and rude and then bearable again.It tells the story about the last people on the planet who were so disconnected and dysfunctional that they saliently agreed to disappear or at least didn't bother to live as individuals any longer. Those people accumulated so much grief and [...]

    25. Another author in that very French intellectual tradition which seems to confuse being cynical with being profound. The basic thesis is that humans are risible and worthy of our hatred, and that interpersonal relationships are a despicable delusion. Some of this is illustrated with neatly-done set pieces, other parts are more didactic. The novel shows a consistent disgust for human bodies and sexuality which I thought rather juvenile.There are some moments of wit, but in general the prose style [...]

    26. A lot of this book consists of a tirade of hatred against the author's dear mama. Now finally, the 83 year old hippy herself has emerged from her retreat with all guns blazing. Hilarious article about the whole rancid argument herebooksardian/departmenSample quote"If it hadn't been my son, I wouldn't read that kind of crap, I would put it down straight away, because if there's one thing I detest in the world it's pornography. That book is pure pornography, it's repugnant, it's crap. I don't unde [...]

    27. تاريخ القراءة الأصلي : ٢٠٠٥ماذا يحدث داخل عقول ونفسيات مجتمع ودع المسيحية والعائلة التقليدية والجنس المكبوت ويعيش حرية تامة مع مشكلة التعامل مع ملايين المهاجرين من المسلمين؟

    28. Ceci est le deuxième roman de Michel Houellebecq, paru en 1998, quatre ans après Extension du domaine de la lutte. Il causa alors un vif émoi dans les cercles littéraires français et valu à son auteur une célébrité qu’il a conservée jusqu’à ce jour. Le scandale provoqué à l’époque est sans doute attribuable aux nombreuses scènes pornographiques très détaillées qui parsèment le récit.Mais, si ces descriptions rendent la lecture assez piquante, elles prennent leur place d [...]
