Customer Review

on May 4, 2012
This is the first volume of the classic 'remembrance of things past' by Marcel Proust and is an excellent indicator of things to come in the following volumes. The whole tome is an analysis of the sociology and psychology of people in general and major players of 'La belle epoque' of turn-of-the-century Paris in particular. Just like the TV series 'friends', no aspect of human perception, interaction and creativity is left unturned.
This is the original Scott-Montcrieff translation and is certainy worthy comparison with other, later tanslations.
I have read the whole series twice before (yes, it is that good). Keep a dictionary handy.
Unfortunately my copy was on my kindle which was stolen by cleaning staff at Heathrow airport from an Air Canada flight, having left it in the seat pocket (one isn't at one's best after a 9 hour arctic flight.)
