The Unbearable Lightness of BeingThe Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is a very philosophically written book. It provokes many thoughts as you read through. The characters are portrayed in a very psychoanalytical fashion. Theme revolves around romantic relationships in a disarray about love and sex.The style of writing is fascinating.
I was hoping that it will resolve the concept of relationships in the end. However, the ending does not resolve it into an absolute but makes it clear that the idea of love is not absolute but a nuance. Relationships are complex so is human consciousness. I would like to reread the book someday.( When I am older and wiser in that domain.)
