Reviews - What do customers think about La ignorancia?

Un libro sobre el sentimiento de los exiliados!  Oct 5, 2001
Irena salió de Praga después de la ocupación soviética de 1968 rumbo a Paris, en donde vive desde hace 20 años. Sin embargo para sus amigos franceses ella siempre ha sido una emigrante. Nadie quiere entender que sus 20 años en Paris son los años de su vida y no los años que dejó atrás en Praga en su patria perdida. Después de la caída de la cortina de hierro ella visita Praga y se da cuenta de que allí tan ella es tan sólo vista como una visita, que Paris es su nueva Patria, pero sin embargo Paris no quiere serlo. En Praga ella encuentra a su ex-marido que también ha sido emigrante, pero que había tomado camino a Dinamarca. Ellos creen crear una nueva relación basada en recuerdos pasados, más sin embargo en la vida no se puede dar un salto de veinte años. La novela trata el problema que tienen muchos emigrantes en sus países huéspedes. Para muchos pasan los años y se siguen sintiendo como extranjeros, sin embargo cuando regresan a sus paises de origen, se dan cuenta que estos se les han vuelto extraños. El libro se los recomiendo a todas las personas que viven fuera de su patria.

An essay about memory  Mar 22, 2001
Like most of the Kundera's books I was sticked to it until i finish the reading. It's a very struggling story about people that has been auto-exilated.

This book can be seen as an essay about memory, cause Kundera presents the remembrances and hopes of the characters are so dissimilar about reality showing differences between man and woman feelings and perceptions.

I dislike Kundera's misogyny.

Could be one of Kundera�s weakest, worth reading anyway  Oct 18, 2000
In "Ignorance", Milan Kundera maintains the same line of writing he has used in his previous works. He develops interesting characters and exposes their thoughts and feelings, maybe mixing them a little bit with specific subjects such as slowness, inmortality or ignorance. He usually does this with great results, his novels are mostly very entertaining and profund in some way. I said in a previous review that when you finish a book by Kundera you feel like you just had a great conversation. However, this doesn't happen with "Ignorance", it still is entertaining and all, but in a very forgetable way.
