1984 . Philosophy, Fiction, Romance . Milan Kundera, Michael Henry Heim
In The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera tells the story of a young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing and one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover. This magnificent novel juxtaposes geographically distant places, brilliant and playful reflections, and a variety of styles, to take its place as perhaps the major achievement of one of the world’s truly great writers.

Hated this book and I really didnt expect to as its so famous. The characters are all unpleasant, infuriating and self-obsessed, which made it very hard to care about what happened to any of them.

Gorgeously written- I underlined I felt every other line because Kundera speaks so eloquently of the human condition.
