My third Houellebec novel and it sits right smack bang in between the other two with it s dick hanging out The Elementary Particles or Atomised as I knew it then I really liked It was rude and crude yes but the story had me hooked and it very well written whereas Lanzarote I really didn t like It was cheap and tacky and lazy and featured a narrator I wanted to kick in the balls and push into a live volcano Regardless what people mostly women make of him and his themes there is no doubt he can write a decent novel or at least when it suits him I get the impression had I gobbled up all his novels it would be a case of only liking some of them It s widely been said he is the first French novelist since Camus to find a bigger following outside of France Maybe But I can certainly think of a few countries that he wouldn t get such a warm welcome namely the Muslim ones You know from page one with the words fat cock and cunt just what sort of book it s going to be He likes profanity so for those easily offended he isn t the writer for youWhile in Thailand Michel the narrator falls in love with Val rie an employee of the tour company which is in business difficulties Back in Paris they embark on a steamy love affair With the narrative sometimes in the doldrums the sex becomes soggy various and frantic Michel persuades Val rie and her boss to convert the company s hotels in Thailand and the Caribbean to sex tourism The new package holidays are a success with the Germans a stupid race apparently notoriously without culture The story somehow works albeit in a preposterous way as we are not really in the face of reality Houellebec is at pains to exclude any sentiment unless it is banal ignorant and touristic and unfortunately he becomes hopelessly distracted by his incontinent love of sexual descriptionMichel is prone to flashes of pointless rage but his biggest characteristic is a fear of MuslimsPlatform for some will seem nothing than a degrading lewd anti liberal anti semitic novel but there were other aspects to story like loneliness and frustration that just about kept me interested

This book is a fascinating mess Houellebec attacks modern day capitalism and the atomization of society dissects the tourism industry ponders Islamic terrorism oh yes and there s uite a lot of pornographic writing in this text Our protagonist is Michel yup like the author a guy in his early forties who works for the French Ministry of Culture where he mostly does calculations and sometimes gets confronted with ridiculous artistic projects that get monetized by the state as we all know Houellebec has always been a huge fan of the cultural establishment not Michel lives a very isolated life and has a hard time maintaining human relationships thus being somewhat exemplary for the much discussed loneliness epidemic In his spare time he hangs out in peep shows where he is looking for human contact and sexual relief When his father dies Michel takes a round trip in Thailand with a French travel agency It is there where he meets and falls in love with 27 year old Val rie who herself works in the higher ranks of the French tourism industry Together with a colleague of hers they develop a concept for organized sex tourism which becomes a big hit until Islamic terrorism ruins their plans The whole text has a confessional feel and a highly fragmentary character as Michel often uotes scientists and elaborates on his own ideas about the spiritual and sexual state of the Western world He also freuently recounts conversations he had with people and shares his impressions and judgements of people Then we have the narrative arc itself that drives the story and keeps his musings together plus a lot of very explicit sexual scenes This makes for a rather disparate result but I was glued to the text as it is apparent that this novel was written for effect as a statement to be discussedAnd this is probably the part of the review where I have to state and I can t believe that it has to be stated over and over and over again when it comes to this author that the protagonist and Houellebec are not the same person Don t fall for simple provocations like naming the protagonist Michel Rather one should look for the meaning of this character and face some uneasy facts The loneliness epidemic exists People stuck in the hamster wheel of capitalism battling burn out or bore out exist Countries like Japan struggle with the fact that rising numbers of young people don t have a sex life The incel movement exists Sex tourism exists Islamic terrorism exists Does that mean that one has to draw the same conclusions as Michel the protagonist Absolutely not But does anyone really doubt that commercially organized sex tourism would be a successful concept if it was allowed That there is a connection between the commodification of sex and neo liberal global capitalism And that all of this is alarming mortifying terribleHouellebec is talking about these issues in a provocative no holds barred way There is no moral judgement little empathy there s a lot of rhetoric aiming to cover the fact that this industry is about exploitation although it is obvious that it is The reader should look at the characters talking and what they stand for the meanings this story might convey Houellebec always holds my attention and makes me think and that s why I appreciate this author

An 18 rated review of an 18 rated book If you don t want to read about the gory details of fleshy entangulations and of bodily fluid by the bucketful then you need to steer well clear of M Houellebec He s all about that The sex is like the worst kind of bad cartoon porn and we can t possibly be meant to take it seriously I don t really know what it s doing in here He s trying to make a serious or black comedy ironic point about the state of first worldthird world relationships and how everyone could be made happier if we only just lightened up about sex tourism And he scuppers his own novel because he includes this stuff Michel that s the protagonist yes same name as the novelist and his brilliant girlfriend Valerie are out on the town in Paris Now read on It was a Saturday night the place was uite full We met a really nice black couple she was a nurse and he was a jazz drummer three sentences later We finished our drinks and headed up to the rooms He suggested a double penetration to Valerie She agreed as long as I was the one to sodomise herSo the two guys do the two girls and I must admit I lolled at this Everything went smoothly I was agreeably surprised by my own staminaWell bien sur mon ami that s what happens in porn The sex is always stratospheric the orgasms always geyser forth like an Icelandic hot spring and everyone is able to have about five or six per hour the gentlemen s members are always like several iron bars welded together they never ever suffer from erectile dysfunction and the girls always regard what comes out of the end of them like normal people regard a glass of Vosne Romanee burgundy the girls are always gagging to have everything shoved everywhere and they always want to do it again ten minutes later and no one has any diseasesSo Michel and Valerie s evening struck me as a little unlikely but maybe I should get out Or not of courseA few pages before that they were in Cuba on holiday having sex in their hotel room and they ve left the curtains open A maid sees them Valerie got up walked towards her and held out her hands And that s all it takes the maid is young gorgeous and completely into the idea of a threesome at the drop of a broom Mais bien sur again She s not 52 varicose veined and asthmatic Well this is all ridiculous French Swingers A Go Go and it makes it Platform a very silly novel indeedThis novel is about sex tourism and never mentions drugs or the miserable lives of the sex workers In fact all the sex workers are happy hookers who are glad to be able to work that thing to bring joy to the face of whatever potbellied manbreasted Western male they are lucky enough to have copped off with I should say that this did not make Platform resound with believability for meAnyway in Platform we get the narrative of a disenchanted loner who goes on a sex holiday to Thailand and hooks up with one of his fellow tourists Valerie and falls in love And they have great and plentiful sex see above He s in his 40s she s 28 with a cleavage to drown in and she likes girls too Naturellement So this is standard male fantasy territory in porn and in Hollywood all males over the age of 40 are able to captivate a knockout girl in her 20s Also in arty movies same thing Look at all Woody Allen movies I saw Manhattan recently in that a late 30s Woody is sleeping with Marielle Hemingway who is 17 Sorry I digress Added to that and given eual prominence is a steady stream of piuant miserablist ruminations on the state of life in the West I cannot deny these are hysterical Men live alongside one another like cattle it is a miracle if once in a while they manage to share a bottle of boozeIt is in our relations with other people that we gain a sense of ourselves it s that pretty much that makes relations with other people unbearableIn most circumstances of my life I have had about as much freedom as a vacuum cleanerGradually everything becomes too difficult that s what life comes down toWhen all s said and done the idea of the uniueness of the individual is nothing than pompous absurdityAnything can happen in life especially nothing And the aphorism which seems to sum up MH s jeremiad pretty well We have created a system in which it has simply become impossible to live and what s we continue to export it Anyway MH the protagonist goes on at length about how in the West we all run around working like mad and making money and in the process becoming so exhausted that sex never mind love becomes far too much trouble We ve become so picky and self centred we wouldn t dream of devoting ourselves to the pleasure of others even for 15 minutes So we have money but we re miserable because we still want the sex and the affection Therefore we should all men and women go to Thailand for 2 weeks every year There the natives have nothing except their extremely attractive bodies They love nothing than to devote their entire working lives to making you yes you come on no false modesty please achieve the kind of orgasms you never knew were possible You know you want toTo sum up the rest of the novel and we d have gotten away with it too ifn it weren t for them pesky Muslim terrorists This was a fun novel to read it was so odd so ridiculous so pompous so off the scale unrealistic so almost racist so insulting to all and sundry including specific Frederick Forsyth and John Grisham novels he takes a page or so to slag off these books uoting from them without any acknowledgement anywhere so downbeat and so raving mad that I should give it 3 stars except that it really is almost complete rubbish
