The Unbearable Lightness of Being
A novel that mixes narrative with philosophy, that jumps around in time and that is unlike any novel I have read before. Kundera must be one of a kind and I guess he is not everyone's taste, but, for me, this is a remarkable book. It wasn't really until I finished it that I paused to reflect and realised both the story and the extended pauses for philosophy had both given me new ways of looking at things. I don't necessarily agree with all the viewpoints, but I think it would be fair to say we don't grow as human beings by only thinking about things we agree with: it is better to be taken by surprise by a view and think about your reaction to it.
