Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 10/4/2013

    " Proust is THE most difficult writer to understand, in French or in English. This was like the Calculus AP exam for me. I never thought I could do it, but veni vidi vicci! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/18/2013

    " I know Proust is supposedly a genius, blah blah blah... but I honestly wanted to kill either Swann or myself by the end of the book. All the dude does is whine. Just get it on with Odette and shut up about it. "

    " superbe. mais j'attends la retraite pour La recherche du temps perdu. "

    " I can't say I can see what all the fuss is about. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel | 4/30/2011

    " This was interesting, but not my thing. I enjoy and prefer novels. This was more the result of a writing workshop exercise turned manuscript. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 4/29/2011

    " Slowly, slowly sinking into the astonishingly sensual memory-world of Proust. At forty, I think I'm finally old enough to appreciate it. Reading the Moncrief but I'd like to check out the Lydia Davis translation as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/18/2011

    " That famous description of the madeleine pretty much sums it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riodelmartians | 4/11/2011

    " Got the through this one. Five more to go. A magical time machine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ke | 4/10/2011

    " There were many interesting descriptions that may be perceived as cliche now.

    Some parts bored me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lemar | 3/24/2011

    " This is a book whose ideas can transcend translation. that said the translation by Lydia Davis is a thing of beauty. This is the first of the books that comprise In Search Of Lost Time and I strongly encourage readers to go chronologically through as the payoff is well worth the effort. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 3/20/2011

    " Omg, I hated reading this. I could tell you why, like a real book review, but I can't even deal. I'm just glad I'm finally done. Freedom!!!!
    Book dish: madeleine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/13/2011

    " Fabulous translation, but why isnt her translation of Madame Bovary also listed online? Get it if you can. [OK, now added] "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pwilczewski | 3/6/2011

    " Another book that I didn't actually finish reading, there were parts that were brilliant but I found the pace insufferable and the themes uninteresting - sorry Proust. "

    " It is amazing. Which is not to say that I always liked it. "
