Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reads like a dream" Time Out "Houellebecq captures the spirit of the age better than any other novelist, or any social historian, writing today" Literary Review "There is no other writer like him, at the moment, for wit, acuity or the transparent beauty of his prose. His themes are always big and bravely expounded" Spectator "What Houellebecq has in abundance is an ability to turn commonplace events into high comedy-I enjoyed [Lanzarote] enormously" Sunday Telegraph "Reading Houellebecq is like being caught up in a tropical storm: you are blown away by the ferocity of his imagination" Observer

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As with other Houellebecq novels, this one has moments of cynical wisdom and hilarious black humor. However, the scope of the book is a bit limited, and seems to be a supplement (or extra chapter) for 'The Possibility of an Island.'

If you want to read a great Houellebecq novella, go with 'Whatever.' It's plot is self-contained. Regardless, 'Lanzarote' is a great snack, and can be read in 2 - 4 hours.

This novel of Houellebecq has many of the same qualities of his other writing, although it is less sordid is is also very short. Worth reading for the die hard Houellebecq fan.

he's a dispassionately passionate writer. searing while remaining kind of cold and reptilian. writes about sex like it's the end of the world. great book by a prototypically funny, french nihilist.
