Una visión feroz y sarcástica del presente a través de dos hermanastros cuarentones Michel un investigador en biología ue vive como un. 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 interesting ways of reading Les Particules which show that it s not as pointless as it first appearsSo after considering it a while I d say that this is basically a book about sexual frustration Bruno the main character has an extremely active libido but is unfortunately not at all attractive he s fat ugly and lacks charm He spends his days in a constant agony of unfulfilled desire I recently read Hamsun s Hunger the poor guy in Hamsun is broke and hungry and no matter what he tries to think about he always comes back to money and food within a few minutes Hamsun s very brave about showing how degrading this is for him Bruno s plight is similar He s not getting any sex and that s all HE can think about And in fact it s not unreasonable to argue that Houellebec is being brave too in describing just how humiliating that is for him The author could put it in general terms or he could indirectly suggest it but a detailed description of how Bruno masturbates over his algebra notes while watching girls on the train drives it home far effectively Il prenait l autorail de Cr cy la Chapelle Chaue fois ue c tait possible et c tait presue toujours possible il s installait en face d une jeune fille seule La plupart avaient les jambes crois es une chemisier transparent ou autre chose Il ne s installait vraiment en face pl tot en diagonale mais souvent sur la m me banuette moins de deux m tres Il bandait d j en apercevant les longs cheveux blonds ou bruns en choisissant une place en circulant entre les rang es la douleur s avivait dans son slip Au moment de s asseoir il avait d j sortit un mouchoir de sa poche Il suffisait d ouvrir un classeur de le poser sur ses cuisses en uelues coups c tait fait Parfois uand la fille d croissait les jambes au moment o il sortait sa bite il n avait m me pas besoin de se toucher il se lib rait d un jet en apercevant la petite culotte La mouchoir tait une s curit en g n ral il jaculait sur les pages du classeur sur les uations de second degr sur les sch mas d insectes sur la production de charbon de l URSS La fille poursuivait la lecture de son magazine But why does Bruno feel this terrible and what does it say about our society Houellebec has some interesting observations about how free market economics have entered into people s personal lives having also read Naomi Klein s The Shock Doctrine in the near past this resonated rather well In the economic sphere Klein argues persuasively that the logical long term result is a world where Dick Cheney and his immediate circle of friends own almost everything and a good 40% of the world owns nothing In the sexual sphere the corresponding long term result is a world where no one really wants to fuck anybody except Scarlett Johansson or Megan Fox depending on whether they prefer blondes or brunettes and will not even consider fucking anyone who isn t young and thin Bruno exemplifies this horrible state of being thwarted sexual desire has turned his life into a living hell and Houellebec is psychologically credible in showing how it progressively destroys him making him hate everyone and everything One interesting angle is that the book contrasts the materialistic world view that has him in its jaws against the traditional Christian world view It s probably not an accident that when Bruno does in the end meet a woman who truly loves him she s called Christiane Here s another example of how the graphic descriptions of sex are not as gratuitous as they first appear Bruno has just spent a very happy week with Christiane but must leave Bruno avait d j pli sa tente et rang ses affaires dans la voiture il passa sa derni re nuit dans la caravane Au matin il essaya de p n trer Christiane mais cette fois il echoua il se sentit mu et nerveux Joue sur moi dit elle Elle tala le sperme sur son visage et sur ses seins Viens me voir dit elle encore une fois au moment o il passait la porte Il promit de venir In a Brigade Mondaine novel this would just be pornographic Here it comes across as a rather moving scene I felt very sorry for poor Christiane it was already clear that things couldn t possibly work out wellThe part of the novel I found least engaging was the thread that followed Michel Bruno s half brother Instead of experiencing life as one long torment of desire Michel hardly feels desire at all He becomes a biophysicist and eventually finds a way to create an immortal race of asexual beings which duly replace humanity I wasn t very convinced by any of this partly because Houellebec seems to be unaware that biologists have spent a lot of time wondering about why it is that sexual reproduction is a good idea It s an interesting story and deserves to be treated with respect I don t think however that we need to discuss whether Michel s idea makes scientific sense I don t believe Houellbec is seriously saying that we should find a way to evolve away from sex any than Brecht in The Tutor is seriously suggesting autocastration as a solution He s just saying that the pain that sex and love cause people is such that you re willing to consider an extreme solution in order to escape from it Unfortunately Houellebec has loaded up with scientific buzzwords but doesn t seem to have any deep understanding and I found the uantum mechanics much irritating than the pornography For example I suppose that all the references to the Einstein Podolsky Rosen gedankenexperiment are intended to suggest that Bruno and Michel are inextricably bound together uantum entangled in fact their mother is the source Bruno and Michel are the two electrons But if you insist on a uantum mechanical metaphor a particleanti particle pair seems both obvious and easier to understand invoking EPR is basically just too fucking clever Which is a reasonable criticism of the whole book in factI discovered yesterday evening that Les Particules is listed in 1001 Books To Read Before You Die Well I suppose I agree Though I m also warning you that it could significantly advance the date of your demise
