Oops. I've left this so long to journal that I can hardly remember my thoughts on the novel. But I liked this more than expected. It was faster-flowing than most 'philosophical' novels, but raised interesting questions along the way.

I don't think it survives current attitudes towards sexual harassment and power very well however. Tomas was deeply unpleasant as a lead character and the women were a mixture of stereotypes and sexual fantasies. To some extent this was deliberate I guess, but still, I think Kundera's own attitudes towards sex were significantly behind the norms of today's world.
