  • L'écrivain français Michel Houellebecq à Paris en novembre 2014

Avec un tirage exceptionnel de 320.000 exemplaires, le septième roman de l'écrivain français dont l'histoire plonge dans la France rurale s'annonce déjà comme un best-seller.

Il y a quatre ans, la parution de Soumission avait provoqué un véritable raz-de-marée. Publié le jour de l'attaque de Charlie Hebdo, le roman d'anticipation imaginait l'effondrement du monde politique français et prophétisait l'arrivée d'un parti islamiste au pouvoir.

Malgré les scènes pornographiques, le roman de Michel Houellebecq est éminemment romantique.

Goncourt 2010 n'a pas lésiné sur son savoir-faire: une bonne dose de lose et une pincée de désenchantement emballés dans une prose lubrique et crue. Cet ouvrage s'est écoulé à près de 800 000 exemplaires dans le monde francophone et à 520 000 exemplaires en Allemagne.

Another goal from Chhetri restored their lead before further strikes from Anirudh Thapa and Jeje rounded off the win in Abu Dhabi. The 34-year-old attacker scored a sensational brace in India's 4-1 victory in the group opener.

Outre la description d'une impitoyable violence sociale, qui semble avoir anticipé le mouvement des Gilets jaunes, le cœur du livre parle d'une violence intime tout aussi terrible: celle d'un homme égoïste que l'échec de la vie amoureuse a conduit à la dépression.

Dans toutes les librairies de France, "Sérotonine", de Michel Houellebecq bénéficie d'une importante mise en place: en devanture, en pile à l'entrée ou encore un peu partout à l'intérieur des magasins, qu'ils soient de centre-ville ou de périphérie. On sort de sa lecture bouleversé. Il sortira en Allemagne le 7 janvier et en Italie le 10. Il s'agit de la plus grosse sortie littéraire de ce début d'année. "Mais maintenant, il faut le prendre au sérieux", estime Die Zeit. Le Frankfurter Rundschau qualifie quant à lui Houellebecq de prophète des " gilets jaunes ". "Sérotonine est un nouveau chapitre d'une œuvre nécessaire pour comprendre où va le monde.et changer de direction", estime Il Giornale. Michel Houellebecq est "de retour avec un roman qui met en lumière la colère qui couve depuis longtemps dans les provinces françaises", relève The Sunday Times.

Dans son livre, selon le quotidien britannique The Telegraph, l'enfant terrible des lettres françaises ne fait rien de moins que prédire le destin tragique de la civilisation occidentale.

Pour le journal espagnol El Pais, " une des scènes centrales est le blocage d'une autoroute par des agriculteurs en colère contre Paris et l'Union européenne, grande pute, selon les mots du narrateur. "La protestation se termine par un affrontement sanglant avec la police, comme si le sismographe houellebecquien avait anticipé" les heurts qui ont marqué l'actualité des derniers mois.
