• Recommended over and over to me by all walks of bookphiles. My next book.
  • I want to like his work but after this and Perdido Street Station I have to conclude he is not for me.
  • Slogging through this. Brilliant but tough. A "page a day" kind of book.
  • Reading this now and almost done. Lovely book.
  • No plot, no story, absolutely wonderful book. So tranquil. Read it if you need a time out from city life.
  • I am off to Namibia on Thursday and a friend lent me his Lonely Planet and this guide. Thanks Xavier.
  • It won some or other prize and I have to admit the jacket cover is alluring.
  • Read this years ago. Hard, but worth it! ;) - Fotonify
  • Read the French translation about four or five years back... Kundera has since published novels written directly in French. See the film... Juliette Binoche is wonderful. - Fotonify
  • And Kundera has also supervised the new translations of his old non-french novels. Anyway, I love this guy and his views on the world. Mostly cynical, for sure... as me ;-) And the film of Philip Kaufman is a ...jewel... - Deckard@tyrell.corp
  • one of my fav :) - Anna Rigato

I too, am a book addict. I have no plans to combat my addiction nor do I plan to have any. I acknowledge it, I accept it, I live with it, I feed it, I rejoice in it.

    Paul, did you really get through Ulysses?

    [edited for typos] I am very taken with the visual joke of the way you aligned the Kundera. In the US, I don't believe it issued with a white cover, and that design makes the photo set-up all the better.

    No, I am still slogging through Ulysses, couple hundred pages to go still.

    And I am glad you noticed the placement of Milan. It totally works that way :)

    Mine was inspired by giraflor's! ;) Of course she did hers specially for me... lol So I guess I am the origin somehow.
