This review is from: In Search of Lost Time (Proust Complete - 6 Volume Box Set) (Modern Library) (Paperback)
Everyone should read this book as soon as they are able to do so. The wisdom and insight it contains give valuable tools for making it in society. I'm over 60 and am kicking myself for not having read the book earlier and for having listened to people who said it's impossible to read and understand because of the long sentences and page-long paragraphs. Reading it is slow but really worth it. I am actually reading it first in French and once I have finished, I shall read it in English. Proust 'reads' people and judges them - not at first sight, but once he figures them out, no one is spared his sarcasm, not princes, princesses, anyone!
