The many reasons but besides that - which probably comes as a surprise to many - he is also easy to read and very entertaining, so you also become wiser in such a real professional way as his particular literary, political, historical and philosophical references are so numerous, thus I often read his books with wikipedia (which everyone knows is a precise reference tool) - It is a joy to hear about a permeated and distorted well-known writer or philosopher whose name you have never heard.

In addition, the book's protagonist Francois is the same age as myself, so maybe there is a hint of something recognizable there. Nomatter - give Michel Houellebecq a chance!
