La Carte et le Territoire - Michel Houellebecq

It is impossible not to be appreciative of such an artful combination of mastery and originality.

Houellebecq's is a high-level-testosterone, scientific kind of writing. The characters appear extremely far removed from me (although this one does live on my turf!) and their world-views are very foreign to mine.
Not at all my cup of tea, therefore!
But the thing is that with a writer this accomplished, you don't even have to like tea at all.
