A Novel

Book - 1998
Average Rating:

There are situations in which we fail for a moment to recognize the person we are with, in which the identity of the other is erased while we simultaneously doubt our own. That also happens with couples - indeed, above all with couples, because lovers fear more than anything else "losing sight" of the loved one. With artfulness in expanding and playing variations on the meaningful moment, Milan Kundera has made this situation - and the vague sense of panic it inspires - the very fabric of his new novel. Here brevity goes hand in hand with intensity, and a moment of bewilderment marks the start of a labyrinthine journey during which the reader repeatedly crosses the border between the real and the unreal, between what occurs in the world outside and what the mind creates in its solitude.

A really hard book. I felt like I was missing something throughout the whole book. Maybe it's the style of writing that I don't understand. The words are easy but there's just something about it that makes me question myself if I'm actually understanding this book.
