Atomised - Michel Houellebecq

Who bought it: Me.

What is it: A novel about an asexual molecular biologist and a his lusty yet unreciprocated half-brother.

When: February 19, 2011

Where: Fully Booked – Bonifacio High Street

Why: The molecular biologist thing got me going. And I always feel like buying a book whenever I visit this Fully Booked branch. I remember buying my copies of Never Let Me Go and 2666 there. And oh, I was supposed to buy Anna Karenina instead of this since it is cheaper. But I am still reading War And Peace, so I decided to stick with Atomised. My copy is entitled as such, but they are supposed to be the same.

How much: Php 450.00
