      To these questions he has no answer.Milan Kundera is a philosopher in the garb of novelist but a philosopher of life lived, dreamed and yearned for a philosopher who will not deal in abstract metaphysics and grand scheme of ideas that, in the last analysis and against the banality of the real world, bears little of its weight on who we are, what we do, and mostly importantly, why we do it.Through the story of an odd people, Jean Marc and Chantal, who get together as a result of oddness in their [...]

      Whenever I m at a loss for what to read next and don t want to take any risks, I reread either Vonnegut, Murakami, or Kundera I ve probably read this book five times, but I love him so I don t care You know, maybe it s that old problem of how sometimes with really distinctive authors, all their works sort of blur together retroactively, but wow Only the first like twenty pages seemed familiar to me, even though I am sure I ve read this several times before The whole last third, where everything [...]

      This small gripping novel is the story of two lovers, Jean Marc and Chantal It moves from one to the other, following assumptions, emotions, beliefs and ideas some shared, but mostly held in secret It s about being seen, and about how we see each other Identity is not fixed but is drawn from the mirrors around us One of the messages of this novel is that, in order to love, you need to be certain that you know who the other person is Once you start to doubt your lover s identity, love is eroded I [...]
