But my library has it on audio and I might not otherwise read it without this prompting, so we'll see!
My comments in 2009.....
Comedy and tragedy, the novel looks at human existence. Geographically it connects Prague, Geneva, Paris, Thailand and the United States. It explores the relationship of husband and wife (Tomas and Tereza) and their beloved dog named Karenin.Tomas is epic womanizer. Tereza has a strong hold over Tomas through her weakness but doesn't realize this until they are old. "when people are fairly young and the musical composition of their lives is still in its opening bars, they can go about writing it together and exchange motifs......" Secondary characters are Sebina and Franz. Sebina is both Tomas and Franz's lover. The bowler hat is a major motif.
