National Libraries Week: day #2

Name: Jo

Library: Canada Water

Book: Whatever by Michel Houellebecq

If you like plots that are interrupted by Houellebecq's rants about sex, love and social liberalism – that are actually disguised as the weird animal stories the protagonist writes – then you'll love this.

Here's a visual: You're swimming in a still lake. It's quiet, apart from the occassional dragonfly. All of a sudden you're dragged under by clunky paragraphs you need a dictionary for, and are suffering from whiplash from the jolt in theme. I'll get the lifeguard.
