Summary

Milan Kundera's sixth novel springs from a casual gesture of a woman to her swimming instructor, a gesture that creates a character in the mind of a writer named Kundera. 
Like Flaubert's Emma or Tolstoy's Anna, Kundera's Agnes becomes an object of fascination, of indefinable longing. From that character springs a novel, a gesture of the imagination that both embodies and articulates Milan Kundera's supreme mastery of the novel and its purpose: to explore thoroughly the great themes of existence.

good but not my favourite by Kundera

I enjoyed the story and the performance but was somehow overwhelmed by the philosophical content of the novel. It's well crafted, funny at times, it has all the beauty and the depth of Kundera's style but it's not my favourite novel by him (which remains for the moment The Unbearable Lightness of Being)

Amazing and unique.

Loved it. Didn't want it to end. interesting, deep, touching. Each character resembles a part of our personalities.
