Petite and perfectly formed

by ianshine on Aug 22, 2007

I'm a big Kundera fan and have read most of his other books. Slowness is different to his earlier books in that it is significantly smaller and was orignally written in French (rather than his native Czech). However, it is still brimming with Kundera's typically astute observations on life, love - and specifically in this novel - the pace at which we live our lives. Kundera postulates that we (well, some of us) live quickly in order to forget our forgettable lives. Readable in three or four hours, this is a great introduction to Kundera for the uninitiated, and a by no means slight addition to his oeuvre for those who have read him before.
