This review is from: The Book of Laughter and Forgetting (Paperback)
I first discovered this book 20 years ago and was entranced by the characters and the stories. Kundera is one of the few authors who makes me feel like he has climbed inside my head and is putting my thoughts into stories. His connection to the inner thoughts of people is quite astounding, most writers skim around the detail...whereas Kundera deals with the inside of the person. His philosophical and compassionate stance merge to form insghtful views into how people react in relationships...what we really think in life. A profound read.
