    1. This week, on Dystopia! Michel Houellebecq discusses the future with Robert Heinlein- Good evening, M. Houellebecq.- Bonsoir, M. Heinlein. Alors, please, tell me your vision of the future.- Sure. So Western civilization, it's already--- --in a process of, ah, désintegration?- You got it, buddy. As my old friend Cyril Kornbluth used to say, they breed faster than we do.- Muslims, monsieur?- People with low IQs. Same difference.- Excusez-moi, monsieur, my novel is respectful towards the Muslim wo [...]

    2. Wow. Great satire of French of European of Western values or lack thereof. So well done that the irony often slips by unnoticed. Who the hell are we? SoumissionSo what do you call a novel about Muslims taking over control of France? A novel of generally cynical politics? A novel where women appear mostly in sexually explicit scenes and have little to say except in defining themselves in relation to men (some exceptions)? A novel where 15 year old girls become acceptable as second (or third) [...]

    3. As a former Muslim, I see that Houellebecq is right on the money. I escaped Egypt my country in search of a land of freedom, and yet here oppression is chasing after me in the West. We love for Europe to be Europe. After all, that is why we left our mother countries in search of a more civilized world where human dignity is respected. By the way, please take a moment to read my story of conversion into Christianity and drop me a line and I will be your friend:answering-islam/author

    4. It seems as though Houellebecq wrote the novel to stir up not debate but controversy. I'm afraid to say that charging a small segment of French population with so much power and influence is way too out of proportion. French Muslims have no power (as a bloc), have no media representation (they own nothing), have no think tanks or lobbies to influence decision-making in France or elsewhere in Europe.Sure, they are the largest religious minority, but the numbers are small in the total population. [...]

    5. I set out to read this book expecting to be provoked because in my experience Houellebecq is always hell-bent on provoking somebody, and very often that 'somebody' is of the opposite sex. I wasn’t disappointed this time; his narrator managed to provoke me right at the beginning, and regularly from then on, so I decided that the only way to review this book was with a full set of teeth on show! But relax, my teeth are not ‘bared’, just revealed in a wide smile because the only way to take t [...]

    6. Would a society based on "Moderate Islam" be such a bad thing?This seems to be the kind of book that divides critics into the two equally useless camps:1) This is islamophobic and racist garbage!2) Bravo! A dark satire!My view is that it's neither. All Houllebecq is saying is that a completely secular society is like a vacuum. Given the opportunity, it will let itself be filled. If you don't want to risk it being filled with something you don't like, then you shouldn't have emptied it completely [...]

    7. This is a case of a novel of ideas with the best (or worst) possible timing. The very day it was published in French was the day of the Charlie Hebdo shootings; a few short weeks after the English translation came out, Paris was attacked again. Our protagonist, whose name I've already forgotten, is a professor of 19th century literature and an gormless slob who eats microwave food and hires prostitutes to lick his balls. He, like many Houellebecq protagonists, moves through life with a depressed [...]

    8. Sex, Religion and PoliticsIf you only read one book about sex, religion and politics this year, make sure it's this one!It packs enormous punch into (far) less than 300 pages, raising the question yet again why novels need to be 562 or 1,376 pages long (and if they do on the basis of some subjective criterion, why they aren't written with such consistent verve, intelligence, wit and humour as "Submission").For all the philosophy, this novel is paced like a mass market thriller or the screenplay [...]

    9. Il est de bon ton de critiquer le dernier Houellebecq.Les fans des Particules élémentaires y voient une œuvre mineure, annonciatrice de l'inéluctable déclin du grand homme ; les contempteurs du prix Goncourt, un énième ressassement de sa veulerie beauf.Je ne crierai pas avec les loups. Pour trois raisons.1. Le style. Houellebecq écrit bien. Fichtrement bien. Avec l'air de ne pas y toucher. Et pourtant avec un perfectionnisme qui force d'autant plus l'admiration qu'il a l'humilité de ne [...]

    10. The people believing in a religion, any religion, have different degrees of faith. There are for example fundamentalists who not only take their own religion seriously, following their holy books with strict literalism and who often also want to force their beliefs on others using different methods.Then there are traditionalists who stick to their religious traditions but respects people of other religions. They are the ones always seeking shelter in freedom of beliefs and to carry on their trad [...]

    11. Για έναν συγγραφέα όπως ο Ουελμπέκ, τα συναισθήματα είναι ακραία μεταξύ των αναγνωστών: είτε τον λατρεύεις είτε τον απεχθάνεσαι. Την απέχθεια δεν την καταλαβαίνω, μα τα πράματα έτσι είναι και δεν μπορούν να είναι αλλιώς. Μιλώντας για ένα βιβλίο το Ουελμπέκ, λοιπόν, θεωρώ πως [...]

    12. Above our heads the linden branches stirred in the breeze. Just then, in the distance, I heard a soft, muffled noise like an explosion.This wasn't the dystopia I had expected. Scandalous -- such was the domestic response to this alleged fragmentation grenade. Set a few years in the future, the Muslim Brotherhood in France forms a coalition and becomes ruling party -- but what exactly follows? Changes, for sure, but ones that often elude the eye. That is, however, from a man's perspective. Women [...]

    13. Μια μακάβρια σύμπτωση καλύπτει αυτό το βιβλίο.Εκδόθηκε στις 7 Ιανουαρίου 2015 και την ίδια μέρα το σατιρικό περιοδικό Charlie Hebdo έκδωσε το τεύχος με την καρικατούρα του Ουελμπέκ ως μάγου να λέει ότι το 2022 θα γιορτάζει το Ραμαζάνι.Την ίδια επίσης μέρα τα γραφεία της Charlie Hebdo δέκτηκ [...]

    14. I have never been a big Houellebecq fan finding his obsession with his own intellect and genitalia annoying, so when a friend assured me that this book, Submission from 2015, was his masterpiece and was not just a paen to his intellect, I gave it a shot. Well, aside from the novel premise of an islamic conversion of France in the 2017 election and a few comical observations here and there, the book is still primarily about his own intellect and his genitalia. I was bored from about page 5 and th [...]

    15. I'm just not sureI wonder why it is that sticking my dick up girls' arses doesn't interest me like it used towhy a book that has something interesting to say about academiaThe girls love it. Especially when I take my dick out of their arse and get them to lick it. They really like that. and also about politicsMaybe if I fucked two girls' arses and then got them to lick my dick. Maybe I'd enjoy that like I used to. Hmmmmould interleave his ideas and quite amusing proseOr maybe. Oh, I don't know. [...]

    16. Not only none of this sound scary, none of this sounded especially new.Francois, the protagonist and narrator of Submission, is a man thoroughly burned out; although he teaches at the Sorbonne and is a specialist in the work of Joris-Karl Huysmans, he thinks little of his job and by his own admission has not done any important academic research in decades. At 44, He has no contact with his divorced parents, and no real, close friends; he eats TV dinners and browses porn sites. Francois seems una [...]

    17. Sottomessi…alla religione?Il libro, ambientato nella Francia dei nostri tempi, descrive l’ipotesi della vittoria alle elezioni di un partito chiamato “Fratelli musulmani” e la conseguente islamizzazione della Francia stessa in seguito al progressivo decadimento morale e degrado dei valori di riferimento occidentali.“Mi rendevo tuttavia conto, e ormai da anni, che lo scarto crescente, divenuto abissale, tra la popolazione e chi parlava in suo nome, politici e giornalisti, era destinato [...]

    18. Στη Γαλλία του πολύ κοντινού μέλλοντος, την εξουσία καταλαμβάνει μέσω της δημοκρατικής οδού των εθνικών εκλογών το μουσουλμανικό κόμμα, το οποίο στο δεύτερο γύρο έχει να αντιμετωπίσει την ακροδεξιά. Κεντροδεξιοί και σοσιαλιστές βρίσκονται μεταξύ δύο ακραίων κομμάτων τα [...]

    19. Why do I always have to think of an iceberg when reading Houellebecq? It is that icy tone of voice in his writing while you sense that there is a vast amount of nasty coldness that stays hidden underneath. His dislike of women and, really, his disgust for mankind is always evident. I do admire though how he evokes in this novel a world that could be entirely possible. One could fit perfectly in this new world order if you do not care about your principles in any strong way. Francois, the protago [...]

    20. Είχα καιρό να γελάσω έτσι. Το κακιασμένο σχεδόν μισάνθρωπο χιούμορ του Ουελμπέκ τσακίζει κόκαλα. Δεν ξέρω αν είναι ταλαντούχος συγγραφέας, αλλά είναι σίγουρα μια παμπόνηρη αλεπού, που ξέρει τον τρόπο να σατιρίζει ανελέητα. Αντί να γράψει ένα έργο που να καταφέρεται ενάντια [...]

    21. (Originally reviewed March 6, 2016)For years now, probably decades, Le Monde and all the other center-left newspapers, which is to say every newspaper, had been denouncing the "Cassandras" who predicted civil war between Muslim immigrants and the indigenous populations of Western Europe. The way it was explained to me by a colleague in the classics department, this was an odd allusion to make. In Greek mythology, Cassandra is a very beautiful young maiden ("like the golden Aphrodite," Homer writ [...]

    22. Esta review contém spoilers e linguagem obscenaSubmissão é um livro que pode ser mau ou bom, triste ou divertido. Depende de quem o lê; ou de como o lê; ou de como o quer ler; ou se lê mais, ou lê menos do que aquilo que está escrito. Lê-se bem e depressa; a escrita é simples e as letras são gordas. A única estrela com que o avalio não reflete desprazer pela prosa, ou pela forma como o romance está estruturado, no entanto, o conteúdo(nas pesquisas que fiz sobre Michel Houellebecq [...]

    23. Description: In a near-future France, François, a middle-aged academic, is watching his life slowly dwindle to nothing. His sex drive is diminished, his parents are dead, and his lifelong obsession – the ideas and works of the nineteenth-century novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans – has led him nowhere. In a late-capitalist society where consumerism has become the new religion, François is spiritually barren, but seeking to fill the vacuum of his existence.And he is not alone. As the 2022 Preside [...]

    24. What a waste of a good idea! The basic premise for this book is both interesting and pertinent. Set in the near-future, there’s been an Islamic take-over of France. The Muslim Brotherhood has come to power – relatively peacefully and democratically. It seems an almost natural progression. Of course there are changes in society. Women are back in the home. No more revealing clothing allowed, and so on. Our protagonist is a middle-aged academic who essentially sees the world around him in term [...]

    25. C'est l'histoire d'un homme falot, malheureux et apathique qui embrasse une religion, non pas tant par conviction que par opportunisme. Finalement, comme il n'avait pas tellement de principes avant, ce n'est pas si terrible. Il y gagne même plutôt au change, en retrouvant un goût à la vie qu'il semblait avoir perdu. Le tout prend place dans une anticipation politique dont j'étais très curieux de voir quelle forme allait être imaginée. C'est celle de la défaite des extrémistes, du triom [...]

    26. Il romanzo è morto? A quanto pare sì. Vi consolerà, invece, sapere che le “scopate” godono di ottima salute. Le “seghe mentali” si piazzano a un dignitoso secondo posto. Ma si sa, ormai possono essere considerate praticamente degli evergreen. Il protagonista, al contrario, non si piazza proprio da nessuna parte. Perché non ha voglia di fare un “beato cazzo”. Neppure l’intellettuale, quale, in teoria, sarebbe.Questo è stato il mio primo approccio a Houellebecq, e, come si può [...]

    27. Michel Houellebecq’s latest novel Submission is set in France in 2022 where a Muslim political leader becomes President and Islamic law is established nationwide. Women must be veiled while their education and equality is curtailed, and polygamy is encouraged. The protagonist is Francois, a middle-aged academic who teaches the work of nineteenth century novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans at the Sorbonne. A sad single man, Francois reminisces on the many former affairs he had with his students and fe [...]

    28. An amusing fictional mirroring of the life of Joris-Karl Huysmans: a misanthropic scholar, contemplating suicide, fed up of his philandering and hollow ways, over the hill in his career, unable to understand Huysmans’s Catholic conversion, follows the 2022 elections, where the Muslim Brotherhood come to power, leading our anti-hero into his own religious conversion, albeit for impure and perverted reasons. The novel contains nothing controversial about Islam—its worst sin is misinformation. [...]

    29. O melhor, sem dúvida a premissa, é muito boa, atual e irreverente, questiona tudo aquilo que somos, põe a nu muitas das verdades que assumimos como imutáveis. O bom, a escrita escorreita, direta, editada e com algum ritmo, ainda que sem nunca deslumbrar. O pior, tudo o resto, principalmente o vazio, ou desconhecimento da História, Ciência e vou mesmo ao ponto de dizer que até sobre o Humano, fica aquém do conhecimento expectável num escritor.Foi o primeiro livro que li de Michel Houelle [...]

    30. Typisch Houelle, weist der Roman wie erwartet mehrere gravierende Ärgerfaktoren auf. Da wäre mal zuerst der widerliche Sexismus des Autors: Frauen verwelken bereits in jungen Jahren schlagartig, es gibt Frauen für die Küche und Frauen als Dirne - am besten für beides. Wenn sie keine von beiden Fähigkeiten haben, sind sie nutzlos.Zweitens habe ich den alternden Penis des Hauptprotagonisten (vulgo Penis des Autors) bereits in vorhergehenden Romanen wie z.B. Platform viel zu genau kennengeler [...]
