Milan Kundera- okay where do I start with this one? First thought that comes to my mind is "Wow, where have I been?" "The unbearable lightness of being" is juat too incredibly great for me to express all the emotions it made me feel. I am more like left speachless.
When amazing #ElifShafak mentioned him in #ThebastardofIstanbul I knew I had to read him, I was ready to like this book, but I didn't expect to be absolutely blown away by it. I am usually good with not showing too much feelings, but this book made me go through total roller coaster of different emotions.
Not being able to name exactly what I feel about this book, all I have to say is that I love it, I think it is the kind of book which people either way love too much or dislike too much and I am happy to become part of the people who admire it. The most I love this honest feeling of happiness I get whenever I am in love with the book, I love my fast heartbeat while reading and this book gave me too many moments like that. It is a book that can shake one's whole world and thoughts.
I love its meaning, its phylosophy, its political side, the unanswered questions it left me with and I am so proud that no matter what and no matter the situation I prefer the burden, the heaviness over the unbearable lightness of being.
