Milan Kundera's sixth novel springs from a casual gesture of a woman to her swimming instructor, a gesture that cre-ates a character in the mind of a writer named Kundera. Like Flaubert's Emma or Tolstoy's Anna, Kundera's Agnès becomes an object of fascination, of indefinable longing. From that character springs a novel, a gesture of the imagination that both embodies and articulates Milan Kundera's supreme mastery of the novel and its purpose: to explore thoroughly the great themes of existence.

Employee Review

Although this novel does not have a clearly defined plot -- at least not one that matters -- it is an easy and interesting read. The Unbearable Lightness of Being is probably Kundera's most famous work, and although I enjoyed that book more, this is still an interesting novel, full of original insights and episodes. It deals with the immortality that is defined for us after we die, by the things people write and say about us, over which we have no control. Overall, worthwhile reading from an insightful author.
