The balance between philosophy and narrative detail is perfectly judged; the book slips down easily like a bad oyster. As is the nature of such things, it is grimly comic -- Nicholas Lezard * Guardian *
Le grand fromage du jour * The Face *
It could well turn out to be a cult here too ... astonishing * Time Out *
Snappy, bite-sized, and often very funny. Is it European exhaustion? Is it the soul of man under late capitalism? Millenial gloom? Post-Christian despair? Is it the death of love? Whatever. But Houellebecq describes it perfectly * Literary Review *
This boy needs serious therapy. He may be beyond help * Washington Post *
The mischief-making enfant terrible of new-wave French fiction * Independent *
Houellebecq captures precisely the cynical disillusionment of disaffected youth * Booklist *
