it was amazing
bookshelves: classics

This is the best book I've read since "The Unbearable Lightness of Being".
I think that I've read several books that have a very similar motif and try to portray the same ideas. However, after reading this one, I think that all have fallen far short of this book.
The prose are beautiful, the insights are so startlingly truthful that the reader can't help but say, "WOW". I wish I had read it years ago and would recomend it to anyone who is starting over or coming into their own.
Excellent read!
