The youth of today...

I ended wondering why this book had been written. The main character (a teacher) is your typical Camus style nihilist, but he has friends and fancies his sister. It's a move away from Houellebecq, which it is also similar to. The booked seemed to lack structure (a bit like this review), and I was left wondering if this was a postmodern technique, or a lack of style. I also couldn't work out what the book was about - the youth of today? A breakdown in society? Lack of cohesion? It makes for fairly quick, painless reading, but lacks the meat it alludes to in its off-hand referencing of philosophical texts, etc.

Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.Appropriately for a school based novel, I must write the correct number of words.
