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 tells the stories of the two brothers, but the real subject of the novel is the dismantling of contemporary society and its assumptions, 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.… (lisätietoja)

How could anyone in their right mind even draw parallels between Houllebecq and Céline or well, Bukowski? It's almost like comparing a golden ingot to a lauded clod of cow dung. Its abysmal rottenness will force its way through your eyes and mind as much as the unbearable reek of putrid dump, and the sheer lack of remarkable content this book has to offer will wring out disgust out of you as the vacuous ramblings of this untalented mess of an author unveil themselves to give you the full picture of this masterpiece of tediousness. This book feels more like a 300 pages long wanking session rather than a 3rd person novel, now you can imagine yourself the atrocity of waiting so long to reach a climax leaving you with the same emptiness of the first pages. The one thing I might salvage? The cover, I've never seen a cover being so honest with its reader, but I can safely say it depicts extremely well what this book goes on about: absolutely nothing. ( )

This is the kind of book that you almost couldn't imagine an American writing, not so much for its subject matter as its unflinching attitude towards it. It's about two half-brothers and their relationship with the world around them: one, abused and mistreated as a youth who grows up with an insatiable sex addiction, and the other nerdier one whose work in molecular biology finally makes sex unnecessary for reproduction. The book's title was also translated as Atomised, and Houellebecq's fatalistic view of the modern world's splintering and separating effects on people will stick with you in this alternately bleak and hilarious novel.

There are rarely books I am unable to finish but Michel's Atomised is one. I have enjoyed many French authors in the past, and have noted (not only relating to French authors) that when authors attempt to preamble genealogical references or annotations for the benefit of establishing the characters, I am more likely to find myself confused by the names, places and periods of time I am required to connect in order to grasp the premise behind certain character's motivations. Atomised indeed had this and I struggled to map my way through the beginning of the book. Meanwhile, the Latin naming convention, a convention more, I feel delighted by the author's intrigue on the typographical effect then any benefit or pleasure for the reader - from my perspective, of course. I did enjoy the moments of reflective analysis inserted along the linear narrative, something I do particularly enjoy in writing.

Finally, being that I have an intrigue and love of more explicit material (Having delved into many a bawdy and smutty work), Michel tends to "gag" the explicit moments always with a "punchline" of sorts, these punchlines lost the effect of the initial explicitness by disturbing the moment with an unnecessary afterthought, once again appearing more like a conscious effort of the author to please himself rather then please the reader. In contrast Kosinski mixes the same explicit anomaly but leaves the outcome for the reader to surmise.

These are my thoughts at the juncture upon which I halted my following of the narrative. Others will have obviously enjoyed the read because they chose to read the book for various reasons, I however was given this novel by my best friend and put in the difficult situation of wanting to finish reading it and feeling that I should put it down and continue my regular reading 'train of thought'. It is a very difficult thing, giving and receiving a book, or a film, or an album. We can be quite selective with our choices of reading materials. ( )

This book was a strange mixture of philosophy and science - "big ideas" with a tenuous plot that stretched over the characters lifetime and out and out porn.

The story often seemed an inconsequential way to move between ideas or long detailed descriptions of solo/group sex. Yet somehow the story of these people was still interesting enough and the ideas were so grand that I kept wanting to read, and see where it was all going.

Not sure the book jacket adequately described the book at all, but on further consideration, not sure this book CAN be sufficiently explained.

Definitely do not regret reading it. ( )

Trash. Provocation masquerading as courage. Apparently one way to be considered a "serious" novelist is to use your god-given gift with the pen to compare gays to pedophiles. Not winning enough prestigious literary awards? Ramp it up by comparing black people to baboons. When all else fails, make every woman in your book either a whore or hag who doesn't really speak much. Though you shouldn't waste time thinking about women when you could be writing a masturbation scene, or a pages-long, equally masturbatory monologue about philosophy, always, ALWAYS, describe the exact shape and size of their breasts. This is called characterization. As soon as possible after describing their breasts, kill them off. And make sure that it is absolutely clear that the point of their death is to be a turning point in the development of the male POV characters.

Besides being offensive as hell, this book also shows why we don't like the "novel of ideas." They are always tedious and condescending, as this book is. Also the ideas are dogshit and have aged terribly. Houellebecq is a reactionary. His big thing is the decline of the west. If he had his way the sexual revolution would have never happened and there would be no muslims in Europe. Love it. Loooooveeee it. ( )
