Shelves: pleasure-read Reading Kundera is a bit like watching Mad Men. Worlds built on artifice. What gives? Kundera and Weiner are masterful at using sexual politics and blind ambition to critique what is horribly wrong within Reading Kundera is a bit like watching Mad Men. American capitalism. Why are these dramas so compelling? There is little description in Kundera, always attention to character, the richness of the individual mind, dialogue.
In the case of the Farewell Party, we can see how s Soviet-style communism limits their actions of these characters except of course for the American Bartlett who is a Christian proselytizer enamored by his own martyr complex and forces them to re-conceive notions of freedom within the circumscribed roles of gender and social status rather than opting for real social change.
Mad Men functions in the same way--if not for s unabashed post-war American capitalism, then Don Draper and his sordid retinue as well as their suburban wives would not be limited by their strict hetero-normative gender roles that determine how middle-class white men and women behave, what they desire, and how and why they think the way.
And yet as readers, we feel for them because they are ultimately human, they have their failings, and are blunted by their own obsessions. First off, the plot of this novel is amazing, hilarious, interesting, and totally unconvincing. He utilizes these absurd characters, that are completely unbelievable, puts them in a situation that would never happen in a thousand lifetimes, and then these unbelievable events do happen to those unrealistic people amounting to a conclusion that forces you to question what we you know about morality, life, and murder.
He does this very well. I would recognize his writing style among million unidentified books. This book was no exception- typical Kundera, lures the reader into his intricate web of ordinary lives turned chaotic, with just enough existential philosophy in every paragraph, to make you think long into the hours of the night I grew to hate certain characters, as if they were made of flesh and blood; I pitied some Why, why do they get involved in such complicated matters, when everything could have been solved so simply?
But, that is Kundera, and that is how he presents life to us. Read it, it will make you think, no matter what kind of a person you are.

Ma poi sul palo di Casti hanno fatto flop. Flop a cui ha contribuito Leao. Sarebbe bastato il guizzo del goleador, per ribadire quella palla in rete. Invece… Lento e molle. Come una partita di RR, cui auguro fortune olandesi. Occasione sprecata?
