A couple weeks ago I finished The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, which came highly recommended to me from a former classmate in my graduate program. This book has a reputation for being at the same time philosophical and pretentious. I have to say, the womanizing main character Tomas and his acquiescing wife Teresa were immensely frustrating. However, there were interesting scenes of life in communist Czechoslovakia.

KatieDid927 Agreed. 1h
Pruzy @KatieDid927 Glad I‘m not the only one who feels this way! 1h
KatieDid927 @Pruzy It took me a really long time to get through because I didn‘t care. 3m
Pruzy @KatieDid927 Fair enough! I read it fairly quickly, but just couldn‘t garner sympathy for Thomas until the end. He finally became a somewhat better person 2m

BookNAround I‘ve read 7. I don‘t specifically search out debuts but I‘m always happy to discover a new author who hopefully has many years and many books ahead of them. 12h

They had made the mistake of thinking of a personality as some sort of possession, like a suit of clothes, which a person wears. But apart from a personality what is there? Some bones and flesh. A collection of legal statistics, perhaps, but surely no person. The bones and flesh and legal statistics are the garments worn by the personality, not the other way around.
