really liked it
bookshelves: auf-deutsch, bookgroup
Read in January, 1998

Re-read this for bookgroup, in German. Not impressed by the translation, which comes off as prudish compared to the English, and at times awkward. Nevertheless, lots here to ponder and chew over.

My earlier review of the English version: This is truly wonderful writing, looking deeply into humanness and how we relate to one another. I tend to forget the plots of Kundera very quickly, but return again and again for the prose.
