What do you think of him? Except that every photo of him looks like a mugshot.

He gets points for being a materialist that at least recognizes how awful and soulless modern life is. But he loses points for somehow managing to be more anti-traditional than anti-modern.

(This is a man who literally thinks that the future of technology, as a future consequence of the Enlightenment, will somehow redeem our listless, perfunctory, perverted and infantile existences- a present consequence of the Enlightenment.)

His prose is awful. His characters are paper-thin. He would be better if he wrote essays instead of the crap he tries to pass off as novels.
>>
Put another way:

Yes Mr. Houllebecq, we know our life is a sham: I don't need you to tell me. I don't go to books to have my face rubbed in that. I go to books because I want some way, temporary or enduring, out of it.

Not to be too judgmental, but if you're looking for a way out of life I can't help but think your money could be better spent than on books. Even a posh suicide in Switzerland isn't gonna break the bank these days.
