    Having finished my long standing affair with Dickens' David Copperfield, then quickly banged out Patrick deWitt's The Sisters Brothers (both excellent, BTW - reviews in appropriate thread), I'm now about a third of the way through Atomised, a book by French novellist Michel Houellebecq.

    Took me 40 odd pages to come to terms with the unusual writing style (jumping from one character to another and one era to another with wild abandon), but it's definitely clicked. Very interesting read, being basically a judgement of post WW2 western society and the changing attitudes.
