Though I much preferred 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being,' Kundera's 'Ignorance' is an equally passionate book. This main character returns to the Czech Republic after 20 years in exile in France following the fall of the Iron Curtain and finds herself in familiar places with familiar people, wholly unfamiliar with the jokes. Drawing comparisons to Odysseus and his long voyage back to Ithaca, 'Ignorance' is a fascinating examination of time, friendship, memory and what it means to go home.

I just could not get into this book. I don't know if it was b/c it was originally written in another language & translated to English or what.
