Review: The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera.

the unbearable lightness of beingI think the reason I tend to be in a hurry when writing these reviews is because I keep putting off doing things to finish a book, and it’s happened again. I asked for recommendations, and this was the only to receive multiple, so I thought I’d give it a go.

I didn’t know what to expect, so the abundance of mistresses and infidelity was a surprise considering the era. I just didn’t expect it. Nor did I expect the lack of flesh to characters and plots, if that makes sense. It was a good book, and enjoyable, but it definitely goes against the normal style of building a full picture. It jumps around a lot.

I didn’t always fall into the philosophical ramblings of the author, so at times these bits dragged, but I can see that, if you did agree with their thoughts, that this would be a heavily enjoyable book from start to finish.

It had its faults, and its quirk in style, but overall I liked it.
