Has anyone ever read any Milan Kundera's work?

I've recently started reading his work. It's quite interesting. Would like to talk to anyone who had read his pieces.

    The only book of Milan Kundera that I've read was "The unbearable lightness of being" .

    Of course. He's one of my favourite writers. I've read "The Unbearable Lightness of Being", "Immortality" several times. I just enjoy his style of writing. It's so sad he hasn't received Nobel Prize in Literature. He definitely deserves it.
    Milan Kundera evokes memories from the past. When I bought my first computer and went online I met a guy from Hong Kong who created a web page on Kundera. He was a great fan of the writer. I was astonished what a guy from Hong Kong found in Kundera's novels. I used to live in a socialist country so I was very well acquainted with what Kundera wrote about. I could understand all his hints and innuendoes.
    Only later did I understand that human nature is universal and no matter where you live, you can understand a great novel.

    This phrase from "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" is one of the best things ever said.

    "Human life occurs only once, and the reason we cannot determine which of our decisions are good and which bad is that in a given situation we can make only one decision; we are not granted a second, third, or fourth life in which to compare various decisions."

    I've heard of it but have never read it @mikkilinn.
