    " Young Proust develops, eclipsing his introspection (from the first volume), seeing the larger portion of the big picture at hand. This time the subject is in relationships: just as every other volume in this series, the characters are intricately living, and the details in description do nothing to deaden the livelihood. With every page, I am reminded at how homely and gifted Marcel Proust was as a writer. "

    " This is probably my favourite. Stunning, beatuiful, clever, it tells me Everything. Yes, EVERYTHING. "

    " I may write a longer review at another time. A quick note now just to say that I actually enjoyed this book better than Swann's Way. Some of that might be because in the first book I preferred the 1st person sections, and this was all from his perspective. I was much more able to feel the characters, get into the story. Like the first book, though, it feels to me like a combination of auto-biography (I know it isn't) and philosophy. I love being inside this person's inner world. The philosophical ideas about memory, in particular, are in line with so many things I've thought about in the last few years it's a joy to have them woven throughout the story. "
