Reviews - What do customers think about Extension Du Domaine de La Lutte?
To begin with, an interesting book Aug 8, 2006
Michel Houellebecq's debut "Whatever" (EXTENSION DU DOMAINE DE LA LUTTE) may not be as great as his latest works, as "Plataform" and "The Elementary Particles", but it already displays the budding talent of a major writer. This novel is sort of a rehearsal for his next books, since here he starts dealing with themes that are dear to him, like the solitude of the contemporary man and the role that sex plays in one's life.
However short "Whatever" is, this book deals with heavy themes. Houellebecq makes everything matter, in his existential journey. In the novel's main idea, the sexual success of a person is related to other factors, such as gender, class and race. Dealing with these material, the writer is not concerned with political-correctness. He wants to tackle the subversive side of the human soul.
"Whatever" is an interesting introduction to Houellebecq's universe. However worth reading this book is, his later novels "Elementary Particles" and the superb "Platform" is where one can find a writer fully developed.
