it was ok
Read in June, 2011

This didn't do much for me. Whether it was because I didn't give it my full attention or because I lack the familiarity with the novels discussed, I don't know. Mostly, it just seemed to be a bit precious and lacking the profound insights I would normally expect from Kundera. Rather than casting new light or opinions on the novel it seemed more like an excuse to wallow in his sophisticated choice of reading material. I definitely appear to be in the minority though, so perhaps I should try reading this again if I ever become more cultured. Maybe then it won't leave me feeling so cold.
