    " It took me a little while to get into it but once I did...wow. Some truly beautiful stuff here. The arc of Swann's feelings for Odette are strikingly familiar, and the descriptions of the Verdurin group are hilarious. "

    " The feeling of being finished after about two years is definitely five stars. Certain passages are five stars. But I've been leaning heavily toward brevity lately. And it could be that the (sadly, growing) language barrier made me enjoy this less than I might have. The clearest rating is probably this: I'm not going to keep this copy, but I will certainly pick up other volumes of ALRDTP if I see them at a book sale for cheap. "

    " One of the best books I've ever read and not because of the story itself, but because of Proust's way of writing. He makes even the most ordinary things look extraordinary! "

    " i surrender. there's a reason why most ppl can only name one famous scene (the madeline tasting) from his journal: it happens on pg44 of 445 in my edition, at the top... not the right book right now, though i acknowledge only a 10% chance of picking it up again. "
