Tuga je bila forma, a sreća je bila sadržaj. Sreća je ispunjavala prostor tuge.

Two Men, Two Women and A Dog in The Lightness of Being
The Unbearable Lightness of Being - Michael Henry Heim,Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being is not everyone's read. For one, there is so much to follow on this book that the true nature of it is the topic that covers about love, infidelity, sexuality, obsession and lust. Its about two men, two women and a dog and how their lives are intertwine from one another based on Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of eternal recurrence.


I do enjoy reading it as it is funny, enlightening and enjoyable in my own account. I do understand its philosophical approach about love and sex and communism, where one felt some lightness of what Tomas desires and the weight burden of what Tereza felt when she was with him. Freedom is the main exploration of what adults do to each of their own. Where else love is a burden when it comes to relationships (that's how Tomas views it), in many interpretations it views differently for other characters.


For me, its a book I am not sure who to recommend. I can say this book gives me a different view how things happen for a reason, and we have only one life to choose from and no other better decisions will make it better as there is no point in comparing any thing. In my own personal opinion, I do find this one of the better reads in modern literature.

“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”

“for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”

“There is no perfection only life”

The Unbearable Lightness of Being - Milan Kundera



I just found my new favourite! I'm still astonished by the flow of sentences and the way he dissects his characters  - with love that's not easy to find in modern literature. I recommend it to all my followers!
