Our emotional to-and-fro-ing, dazzling highs and terrifying lows and so on fascinate them. They can't quite understand it all. This is not to say that the book holds our present way of life up as an ideal in any way. Generally it's even worse than the neo-humans' life. Maybe there isn't really a good way of life left. But pointing out the stupidities of the ways we think about and lead our way of life is a good start toward a better one. As a side note, this is also a pretty funny rip on fame, and obviously takes a lot from Houllebecq's own experiences.

Much better than, for instance, Roth's Zuckerman Unbound. Erst Daniel25 wird seine sinnlose Existenz jedoch hinterfragen und aus seinem Inselleben ausbrechen.

Let's face it, though often tender and playful, sometimes this brilliant, but oh-so-bad boy makes it too easy for us to forget he's being satirical.

Houellebecq just doesn't credibly etch even a whiff of a sense of humour on the pages. Daniel1 just seems, as usual, like a mouthpiece for Houellebecq's despair at and disgust with humanity. I enjoyed the post-apocalyptic sections more, where genetically modified "neohumans" are living in calm isolation from both one-another and the remaining savage humans with shades of such things as Brave New World and The Machine Stops.

I also enjoyed how the contemporary sections, and the musings of Daniel1 and the Elohimite religious cult he gets involved with, lay the groundwork for the neohuman society. Other sections of the book, however, almost had me skim-reading as they just got tedious. Maybe this was Houellebecq's intention. Who knows, but pages and pages of Daniel1's lust and analysis of how male lust is just biology, and humanity's bane , as well as his relationship with the absurdly characterised Esther - who isn't credible as a real woman, but is like a sketch of crudely sexualised womanhood in a porn movie - were dull and obnoxious.

Considering it's a fairly philosophical book, the porno really did get sordid and tiresome. Especially in combination with the pervading bitterness. Nov 27, Amanda rated it liked it. Well, I did enjoy the end of the book, and I guess it's well written, but the majority of the book is just And with none of the charm of a Scarlett O'Hara to even make it fun!

It's just about this man who is a crass jerk who thinks all of hu Ugh. It's just about this man who is a crass jerk who thinks all of humanity is like what he is like, and who is preoccupied with sex and young girls, and who is good at feeling like others are idiots, even as he's missing the point of humanity and existence. Also-- well, I'm American, not French or Spanish, but I can't help but think that he's exaggerating some of the sexual aspects of the cultures to try and make a point, but I'm not even sure if it is intentional.

The whole thing is unrealistic, but a lot of the sex parts break the suspension of disbelief. I did find the sci-fi dystopian elements interesting, though not handled as well as they could have been. But then, I do read sci-fi and do tend to expect a little more in the way of world-building. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It isn't a pleasant reading experience, and there are plenty of better books that are thought provoking.

I could probably spend several pages reviewing this one, but I'll try to keep it short. It's an interesting book, and I'm tempted to give it 4 stars instead of 3, but I can't quite do it. The story is primarily autobiography serving as social critique and vague philosophizing, using the science fictional I could probably spend several pages reviewing this one, but I'll try to keep it short.

The story is primarily autobiography serving as social critique and vague philosophizing, using the science fictional elements to project into the future. Much of this is interesting, though the reader will need a certain patience for long asides and ramblings. The main theme is nominally that of love, and whether or not it's the root of human happiness, though our protagonist is unfortunately much more obsessed with sex and the physical acts of love, which gets pretty tedious.

There's only so much whining about growing old and no longer being sexually functional that one wants to read. Philosophically I had to shake my head much of the time but at least it was fairly interesting. Ultimately the rating of three stars is because it's an intriguing book with a good amount of enjoyable content, but only three stars because it's philosophically rudimentary and often annoying.

Still worth a read if you're curious. May 24, Alan rated it liked it. The first half of the book was difficult to read. Houellebecq's main character is misanthropic and a misogynist whose world view is really depressing. There is a lot of sex verging on pornography, with an absolute absence of joy in anything.

Then he gets to the part of the book about the cult and things get interesting. This is basically a book about the end of humanity and the rise of the neohumans, who are clones of the original humans, but with the sex, eating, and vision edited out.

They are The first half of the book was difficult to read. They are free in a Buddhist sense, with all of the attachments to life, the body, and other people edited out.

I'm not sure why Houellebecq is one of the foremost French authors alive today. I guess he fits in with Sartre, Celine, Baudelaire etc. I like the Italian world view much better. Jul 09, Yoav Bergner rated it liked it. I can't completely recommend this book, which I found difficult to get through. It's uneven and the protagonist is almost intolerable.

The book paints an incredibly despairing, bleak portrait of humanity, at least male humanity. It's probably a misogynistic book, although that may be open to interpretation. The middle portion of this book drags on more than necessary, and it all really comes together only in the last sections. But, formal quibbles aside, it was thought provoking. The main character called himself "a sort of Zarathustra for middle classes". The old man step by step loses all illusions except last, surprising one.

And the same can be told about his clone in far future. However it's not depressive, just kind of being naked. Feb 20, Carla Tv. Como siempre, "novela" dura de entrar la de Houellebecq.

Sep 16, Enrique rated it liked it. I don't even know. Pero la mezcla no funciona. Feb 09, Jacob rated it liked it. While I didn't enjoy The Possibility of an Island as much as Submission or Platform, it's still a good read, full of fascinating ideas and characters.

I was especially awestruck by the notion that the very sexual freedoms that we enjoy in the West might be what leads us to grow bored of them and eventually repress them. It's something to think about, even if it is as inevitable as portrayed in the novel. The party can't last forever. I think we even see some of the effects now; people afraid to While I didn't enjoy The Possibility of an Island as much as Submission or Platform, it's still a good read, full of fascinating ideas and characters.

I think we even see some of the effects now; people afraid to be alone in a room with a coworker of the opposite sex, or college students worrying about being brought up on charges due to a drunken mistake. Prudishness, with the force of law behind it, may be coming back in style. As always Houellebecq's protagonist is complicated; he shows signs of intelligence and creativity while at the same time coming across as absolutely pathetic. His relationships are poor and his character unpleasant.

He contrasts Daniel's failings with his extreme counterparts; a Neo-human clone, a sort of semi-automation, and the savages, humans after the collapse of civilization. His honesty is why I'm so partial to his characters.

They feel as though they are real people, worts and all. Where other writers might become politically correct, and allow their characters to be one-dimensional, Houellebecq shows no such qualms. He stays true to life and admits to thoughts many of us would fervently deny having. Again, not my favorite, but worth a read nonetheless. It reminded me a lot of Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land. But maybe that's just me. Jan 01, Miguel Clarke rated it liked it. Houellebecq mixes together shrewd critique which he does not always build upon with unchecked abhorrence of mankind.

I find his takes fiercely antihumanist at times, because he does not despise human flaws and hopes for better morals or a better world in order to let human beings flourish. Or not even laugh at the shortcomings of people but then ultimately accept them. Rather, it seems to me that Houellebecq thinks the human condition is broken, it is not worth mending, and it can only be esca Houellebecq mixes together shrewd critique which he does not always build upon with unchecked abhorrence of mankind.

Rather, it seems to me that Houellebecq thinks the human condition is broken, it is not worth mending, and it can only be escaped with some unarticulated and vaguely dreary posthuman existence. I'm not sure if this is only his characters as a stand-in for a contemporary malaise described in his novels, or if it's really him.

We cannot be silent, and must do all we can to raise our voices against this terrible massacre that is taking place just north of us, to our fellow human beings. So the conceit is not groundbreaking, but Houellebecq can write and charge through a nihilistic novel with some sort of exuberance that makes you doubt his central position.

Daniel, a stand up comic, is a perfect outlet for Houellebecq's misogyny and racism, but he's still sexy and funny. Daniel's, and probably Houellebecq's hatred for humanity manifests itself in graphic terms: Houellebecq's commentary on humanity, specifically Western culture is revolting, but not untrue.

Our lack of respect for the elderly, the inability of adults to pursue non-sexual relations, the obsession with youth, the detachment of sentiment from sex is all prevalent. The Elohimites are the forebears of our future, hyper-sexual, but not copulating, youth, beauty and strength for its own sake. To his credit, Daniel is skeptical. The thread connecting Daniel1 through Daniel24 is the absolute need to touch and be touched.

Whether it's with a 22 year old sexpot or a dog called Fox, it's tenderness we're after. The sexual escapades are almost innocent, and definitely honest, and nearly sexy and that might be Houellebecq's biggest allure - as enjoyable pornography. Where sex is commercialized completely in Atwood's Oryx and Crake her it is the only truth in human nature.

The Elohimites find Vincent as their Jesus figure, the new man who will lead them into immortality, and it's no more or less ridiculous than Christianity that we actually achieve personal immortality through cloning, or any other sort of artificial genetic reproduction.

The worship of science, the Elohim, becomes a religion itself, and just as ridiculous and irrational, especially with the addition of modifying the genome to streamline life, but remove food from the human experience, so we become walking vaginas and penises. Is this immortality much different from that offered by traditional religions? The slowing down of the novel is much like the slowing down of life towards its end, sad, slow, lonely, but above all numb. The title The Possibility of and Island refers to the possibility of a co-dependent exclusive love working, being successful, separated from everything else, or just the man walking by himself in the desert without a need for anyone else.

Daniel25's journey at the end is the first meaningful act in the book, even though he can find no meaning in his life, not even the imperative to survive, they very thrust of the journey gives it purpose. On the evidence of this book, Houllebecq is the most advanced author of the 21st century.

Not advanced like advanced algebra, which is harder and more useful and more interesting than basic algebra; not like a martial artist who's advanced and just much better than a beginner. He's advanced the way a disease is advanced, particularly a disease that causes pustules to break out all over your body before filling your lungs with bile. The conceit of this novel is that a new species is created: They're like us, except they don't need to eat and they don't have sex. They have their pleasures, but they're very moderate.

This is the eye-catching stuff. It's more important, though, that they believe in and are conscious that the world is totally determined. According to the neo-human philosophy, Dawkins is right to say that we're just sacks of meat that our genes use us to reproduce themselves; Nietzsche was right that morality is a fraud perpetrated on the strong by the weak; everyone who rejected the possibility of individualism was right.

Despite this supposed fact, the creators of this new race had to try very hard to make the units' behavior behavior "as predictable as the functioning of a refrigerator. Maybe he really believes this stuff, I don't know. And it doesn't matter. The important thing is that he takes these very contemporary ideas and runs with them: What would the world look like if a these ideas are correct and b everyone believes that they're correct? It's kind of a platitude in philosophy that 'subjective' is ambiguous.

On the one hand, the subject is the bearer of reason; only subjects can, say, do maths or build bridges or write novels. On the other hand, 'subjective' means partial, tendentious, emotional and basically irrational. Only subjects do things that they really don't have any good reasons to do.

On the other hand, 'objective' can mean either non-conscious, inert material existence or rational, conscious and justified.

In this book, this platitude is elevated to a way of life. The neo-humans live out this split: They're also profoundly dull, leading the most repulsive and alienated life imaginable they only communicate via computer feeds, often in numerical code.

In this world, even religion - which Houllebecq has called stupid - starts to look worthy of nostalgia. And this is what the book satirizes. The neo-humans aren't so neo after all; they're just a really, really exaggerated version of us. Our emotional to-and-fro-ing, dazzling highs and terrifying lows and so on fascinate them. They can't quite understand it all. This is not to say that the book holds our present way of life up as an ideal in any way.

Also-- well, I'm American, not French or Spanish, but I can't help but think that he's exaggerating some of the sexual aspects of the cultures to try and make a point, but I'm not even sure if it is intentional.

The whole thing is unrealistic, but a lot of the sex parts break the suspension of disbelief. I did find the sci-fi dystopian elements interesting, though not handled as well as they could have been. But then, I do read sci-fi and do tend to expect a little more in the way of world-building. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

It isn't a pleasant reading experience, and there are plenty of better books that are thought provoking. I could probably spend several pages reviewing this one, but I'll try to keep it short.

It's an interesting book, and I'm tempted to give it 4 stars instead of 3, but I can't quite do it. The story is primarily autobiography serving as social critique and vague philosophizing, using the science fictional I could probably spend several pages reviewing this one, but I'll try to keep it short.

The story is primarily autobiography serving as social critique and vague philosophizing, using the science fictional elements to project into the future. Much of this is interesting, though the reader will need a certain patience for long asides and ramblings. The main theme is nominally that of love, and whether or not it's the root of human happiness, though our protagonist is unfortunately much more obsessed with sex and the physical acts of love, which gets pretty tedious.

There's only so much whining about growing old and no longer being sexually functional that one wants to read. Philosophically I had to shake my head much of the time but at least it was fairly interesting.

Ultimately the rating of three stars is because it's an intriguing book with a good amount of enjoyable content, but only three stars because it's philosophically rudimentary and often annoying. Still worth a read if you're curious.

May 24, Alan rated it liked it. The first half of the book was difficult to read. Houellebecq's main character is misanthropic and a misogynist whose world view is really depressing. There is a lot of sex verging on pornography, with an absolute absence of joy in anything. Then he gets to the part of the book about the cult and things get interesting. This is basically a book about the end of humanity and the rise of the neohumans, who are clones of the original humans, but with the sex, eating, and vision edited out.

They are The first half of the book was difficult to read. They are free in a Buddhist sense, with all of the attachments to life, the body, and other people edited out. I'm not sure why Houellebecq is one of the foremost French authors alive today. I guess he fits in with Sartre, Celine, Baudelaire etc. I like the Italian world view much better.

I can't completely recommend this book, which I found difficult to get through.
