Book 8: The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1984), written by Milan Kundera, is a philosophical novel about two men, two women, a dog and their lives in the Prague Spring of the Czechoslovak Communist period in 1968.

– From Wikipedia

Today I read the 2,000th page in my 26 book (that is, 9,500 pages) challenge. Whew! And right on schedule. Tomorrow (one day early) I’ll begin Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being. As with most of the books on my list, I come to it in near complete ignorance (indeed, all I know about it is summed up in the rather charming description above). I like philosophy, dogs, and the year 1968, so I anticipate a pleasant time with this one.

Your spolier-free thoughts, please, on The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
