The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

Based on Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of eternal recurrence, this novel is a poetic blending of philosophy and fiction. Throughout their daily lives, the characters struggle between the relationship of chance and meaning in their decisions, thus adding a sense of "heaviness" and "lightness" to their being.
