    Story
    (150)

    A young woman is in love with a successful surgeon, a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing. His mistress, a free-spirited artist, lives her life as a series of betrayals—while her other lover, earnest, faithful, and good, stands to lose everything because of his noble qualities. In a world where lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and fortuitous events, and everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. Hence we feel “the unbearable lightness of being."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend who has experienced being both stuck in a relationship with a person, career, or movement and also disengaged at these levels at various times of his or her life. Having had these experiences I found the story helpful in assessing my own life. It also helps me appreciate the balance I have now found.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I most enjoyed the various combinations of characters and situations that exemplified what can happen when a person needing freedom to experience all encounters one needing connection to express all. In the story this came together for me in Tomas' son, Simon. He could give all to God while not burdening another human being.


    What about Richmond Hoxie’s performance did you like?

    He served as a transparent medium for the story, which held my interest, throughout.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to use this for my commute and took a week to complete the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Audible selection, and I look forward to others.
