Michel Houellebecq ó 8 read free read ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ó Michel Houellebecq characters Plateforme Fair that strays into SM public sex and partner swapping even as they devise a scheme to save Valérie's ailing travel company by capitalizing on the only trade Michel has seen flourish in the Third World Before long he uits his job and their business model for 'sex tourism' is gradually implemented But when they return to Thailand where Michel's philosophy will be put into practice he discovers that sex is neither the most. Julian Barnes informs us that Mario Vargas Llosa once described Houellebec s Platform as insolent He meant it as a praise and I totally agree There s nothing optimistic here No silver lining in reality s dense smog but no degradation either Only raw misery and a steady pace through modern age s thick shit Platform is a good example of form following function We watch everything through the eyes of a 40 year old man who seems to be alienated from everything and everyone in a Meursault kind of way He lives in a world where the western people seem to live robotically work spend fuck die in their nests while the East is merely a punch bag for their neuroses A fuckland which serves as a medium to blow some steam off through sex with ever willing girls andor all kinds of fetishes and perversions West is the pillar of the world whereas in the East women have to sell their bodies in order to make a living Now rationalization commands us to adopt some ridiculous beliefs sometimes like we may very well be doing them a favor They need money we need sex They sell we buy One could say that we are their benefactors even We are the ones that put food to their tables and so on That s or less the reality Houellebec depicts in his novel Yes the sex scenes are purely pornographic but is it really any wonderThe protagonist experiences a certain enlightenment which is somewhat different than Meursault s A change that could be radical but is merely subtle enough however to offer him a fleeting glimpse of something that resembles happiness But can there really be such a thing when conseuences need to be paid It could be that Meursault has evolved and now turns his gun towards a different direction Afterall there are many ways of killing an ArabWhile the prose is mostly dry as a wasteland there is a number of really strong moments where our hero breaks if only momentarily his mental boundaries and makes important uestions which are directly transferred to the reader At the same time the immediacy of the writing style gives the novel an unpleasantly realistic aura that serves as a starting point for several uestionings The fact that what we read is in the mind of an unsympathetic individual but yet seems so true and real causes a certain discomfort that only honesty can exorcise Honesty and gutsHouellebec s Platform has been accused of being misogynic racist and pornographic But what if it s not Platform that s all that but our own society And what if it s simply time for us to reap what we ve sown That would be something of a start I guess4 stars
