An interesting book that makes you think. I loved the way the plots all tied together at some point.

Not an easy book for me to get through, but well worth the effort.

This is the first Milan Kundera book I've read. I enjoyed this novel. The struggles detailed in the protagonist are applicable to everyone at every age although the protangonist took interesting turns. I enjoyed the connectedness of not only every person but every situation in the novel. Kundera also injects long dead artists, writers and philosophers to stress points. I read a lot of foreign authors and Kundera fits beautifully into the scattered style of technique I'm used to in these authors including the author talking to the reader. I find the writing of foreign to be much deeper and more meaningful than current American novelists.

Milan Kundera's sixth novel springs from a casual gesture of a woman to her swimming instructor, a gesture that creates a character in the mind of a writer named Kundera. Like Flaubert's Emma or Tolstoy's Anna, Kundera's Agnes becomes an object of fascination, of indefinable longing.
