"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
