Description

A young woman is in love with a successful surgeon, a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing. His mistress, a free-spirited artist, lives her life as a series of betrayals - while her other lover, earnest, faithful, and good, stands to lose everything because of his noble qualities. 

In a world where lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and fortuitous events, and everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. Hence we feel 'the unbearable lightness of being'. 

A major achievement from one of the world's truly great writers, Milan Kundera's magnificent novel of passion and politics, infidelity and ideas, encompasses the extremes of comedy and tragedy, illuminating all aspects of human existence.

Love the guy who read this

Such a lovely calming voice. He got me through some hard slow parts. Some elements of the story were confusing for me but I'm sure some research will sort that out!

An Absolute Joy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. A delightful jigsaw of stories overlaid with non-judgemental "light" philosophical asides.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unbearable Lightness of Being?

I enjoyed several of the "philosophical" tangents that the narrator took. They added depth to the story, gave us insight into the characters that we'd not have gleaned from the story alone, creating humanity beyond what would be in a more conventional storyline. A third dimension.

What about Richmond Hoxie’s performance did you like?

My impression is that Richmond Hoxie was extremely familiar with the book. He had just the right levity at times when it was needed but also created the characters perfectly.

If you could rename The Unbearable Lightness of Being, what would you call it?

I wouldn't.

Any additional comments?

This book lives up to it's hype. Worth the time, extremely enjoyable. More than "just a story".
