just did not work for me, maybe it was break of my break-up at the time, but i was happy and on the up-swing. a guy at borders handed it to me and said it was a must read for me. NOT!

It kind of works for me because of the other similar books about promiscuous relationships I've been reading lately. I don't tend to judge characters and their behaviors when I read books; I'm more interested in how their story is told and how it taps into greater truths and all that. People conducting unconventional or forbidden love lives I find interesting, especially when there are hypocrisies involved as in this book; the nature of attraction is always a mystery.

might have been the time, but i di not care for the style of writing.

Well, Noran, I agree with you in a sense, Kundera is not as deft a writer as his partisans might claim. It is a bit choppy. But there's lots to ponder. He's definitely not a favorite of mine, but I can understand the enthusiasm for this book. The way he describes the various lovers' various unmet needs and confusions is quite good. I love that kind of stuff.
And Mimi, I noticed you rated Marquez's "100 Years of Solitude" 5 stars. Have you been reading this without telling me? I thought we were supposed to read this together, so as to discuss.

OK, Mimi. Well I'm sure i can start very soon. I'm off work tomorrow to try to figure out financial aid stuff for my son Alex, so i might not have much reading time for the next few days. Glad to see you here on GR again.
