The Unbearable Lightness of Being () – IMDb

Two other characters, Franz and Sabina have a bit of success, too, but perhaps arguably, and they seem to self-realize more realistically, if still too philosophically, unless having sex. I finally understand why most literature in restrooms tend to be joke books, even if scatological – much more palatable than serious bowel-inspired philosophical desperation.

The plot was non existent and the story was boring. Short version view spoiler [she blames herself for being too demanding of him when he clearly loved her so much. While I enjoyed Part 1 and bits of Part 2 and then again found Part 3 to be fascinating, Parts 4 through 7 left me unimpressed and in fact turned me hostile towards this work of Kundera’s.

Please let me know if anyone feels the same and has other like suggestions?

Don’t ask why about that either. He revises the French translations of all his lekkoec these therefore are not considered translations but original works.

Sabine wearing the bowler hat, all I could think is they were all absurd Magritte portraits with nothing but green apple heads and no real thoughts. Truth be told, I was pages away, but felt justified in snubbing the text by not closing the deal and leaving the finale to someone else who is willing to give it a go. Maybe to make Tomas feel as though Tereza has a lover as well? View all 8 comments.

So when Kundera greets us, quite forwardly, and proceeds to arrogantly write what he views as a philosophical treatise beneath the cover of art, but sounds in reality like a hipster kid’s mutterings beneath the cover of crap, the reader may feel just a teensy-weensy bit affronted. Who thinks like these two? There is no way I could stay with my husband if he came home e I truly do not understand how this book has such a high rating on Goodreads.


Milan Kundera is a Czech and French writer of Czech origin who has lived in exile in France sincewhere he became a naturalized citizen in When I read this book more than ten years ago, I recalled enjoying it immensely and recommending it strongly to a few other folks with whom I chatted about books and writing.

It is not that I disliked the book, but I can’t truly say I like it either. The novel moves at a quick clip, partly due to its shorter chapters, and partly due to the fact that I found Tomas and Tereza to be interesting characters.

The only thing worse than attributing human traits to an animal, is ending a book with something as depressing as a long and emotional description of an animal dying and the devastating effect of the death on its owners.

It isn’t about you and it isn’t about them Reading the work is an experience of frustration as well as a certain admiration at his attempt, and the work never hangs together as a unified whole, although it does raise provocative issues to ponder.

Edit Storyline Tomas is a doctor and a lady-killer in s Czechoslovakia, an apolitical man who is struck with love for the bookish country girl Tereza; his more sophisticated sometime lover Sabina eventually accepts their relationship and the two women form an electric friendship.

The book was light but the wall was heavy. Sadly, for me the body of this novel is somewhat clumsily put together and the soul is absent most of the time. View all 12 comments.

She had summoned him to follow her as if wishing to test him again and again, to test his love for her; she had summoned him persistently, and here he was, tired and gray While Murakami carries on some Marquez-like elements and takes the magic-realist mode of prose further into the realm of surrealism, Roth has a gritty, visceral, raw understanding of it which is devastating yet brilliant.


Isn’t this actually very childish and demented? But it was only because the book was so light, by comparison with the wall, that anyone could reach that conclusion; it was a perception borne of limited experience with light and heavy things.

An entire chapter could revolve around some inconsequential action, the thoughts that led up to it and the thoughts that followed it, all told by this creepy, omniscient Big Brother-style narrator. And then she clings to him literally every night – to the point that he controls her sleep patterns.

Frequent discussion of sexual details and an entire chapter devoted to repeatedly using the word “shit” are not inherently bad things. The Americans could’ve nuked the living daylights out of Eastern Europe, and I have a feeling the excitement wouldn’t have picked up a notch.

Somehow, that makes this review seem even more disrespectful. El libro narra la vida de cuatro personas y un perroy las relaciones entre ellos. Shopbop Oekkosc Fashion Brands. Often the choice is not between perfection and imperfection, it is a trade-off. Instead he came off egotistical. Clearly I must be reading it wrong and that’s ok, I think I will fair better without it. The author does an equivalent of breaking the fourth wall and talks to the reader on how he wanted to portray a character or explain his philosophy with example of different characters!

This book should have been titled: Nor had she ever asked herself the questions that plague human couples: A powerful novel that shows the opposites in a human being, both equally good, in stark contrast.

Unfortunately, these kinds of books are unbearable to read. Sabina and Tomas play around before and during byu. I liked the dog, and only the dog. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.
