    Milan Kundera has a certain kind of writing that is only up certain people's alleys. I recently read "Laughable Loves" (a short story collection by him; highly suggested) and I liked that a lot. However, in novel form, I'm not so sure. The telling of the story gets so trying with all of his philosophical offputs. With this plot in particular, I don't think that the plot made up for the long drawn-out philosophical debates spewed in between. But this book, like all his other writings, will no doubt find some way to relate to any reader (mostly on the issue of love), and will definitely get you to think. I feel like his short stories are just the perfect amount of plot to philosophical ratio for me to still find thoroughly enjoyable.
