The next thousand years collapses.
14 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

From Daniel 1 to Daniel 25. The opening scene of the Elohimit revival meeting is promising. The next thousand years collapses into an unexpected longeur. He once again addresses big ideas, but without giving them big thought or serious attention. This time the main subjects are mankind's desire for immortality, as made possible by cloning, and, again, human love. At times he gets bored with his own rants in misantrophy, racism, paedophilia and torture. The novel barks up the wring tree. The film is a cosmic desert. Upsetting that Houellebecq wasted € 7 000000 on this project.
