The unbearable lightness of being - Milan Kundera

It was ok, not really my kind of book..

Its set in the Czechoslovakia of the 60s, against a backdrop of the excesses of communism and the Russian invasion. A surgeon who's used to sleeping around , falls in love , but can't stop nevertheless. We trace the lives of this couple, and another couple, along with their dog, as the times change from bad to worse.

The philosophical thread throughout the novel went above my head as usual, I can't say I understand stuff like Neitzche, and the lightness or weightiness of being.
