5.0 out of 5 stars The original translation, possibly the best
Quite possibly the greatest novel ever. Certainly there is nothing to compare in terms of quantity and quality combined, and compared to other very long novels Proust is easy to read. His writing is so beautiful, the famously long sentences full of a glorious wit and insight, that I found this semi-fictional memoir a great pleasure to read, so much so that I have now read...

3.0 out of 5 stars A long slow tale
I chose this book to have something to read when I had run out of other books. I knew it was a slow paced readand so good for just those slow moments of waiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachelle's Strange world of Dreams, 7 April 2009
Rachelle is considering giving up her analysis with Kevin Brand the well known Los Angeles psychotherapist. Then she has a strange dream which she tells to Kevin. In the dream she is standing by the sea with her brother when a giant swordfish comes out of the water and while her back is turned, swallows her brother. She chases the fish with the large flat aluminium knife she bought in Chinatown but she is unable to catch it. Strangely, Rachelle's brother has been missing for several weeks and police suspect foul play. Rachelle cannot get the dream out of her mind and one evening at the Loon Fung restaurant in Chinatown she is sure she sees her brother at the back of the restaurant unloading crates of fish. She tells her friend who is also coincidentally called Brand who works for the police and he organises a raid on the restaurant. Inspector Brand finds her brother and several other men who have been snatched by a Triad gang to work in their restaurant chain. They are reunited and Rachelle decides to continue her therapy.
