    " i'm not sure how to rate this. i give 'the prisoner' four stars and 'the fugitive' two. "

    " So, the "Lolita"-like stalkerishness of "Young Girls in Flower" here blooms into full-on creepiness -- the premise of "The Prisoner" being that the narrator has more or less locked his beloved Albertine in the house (and kept a watch on her every move outside of it) because he is afraid she is, ahem, a lesbian nymphomaniac. Can't say I was exactly expecting that. Perhaps creepier is the way Proust treats her character in "The Fugitive" as his narrator attempts to confirm and come to grips with his suspicions. Though the introduction to the second half promised the series' "most torturous sentences" (or something like that), they didn't seem any more bogged-down than the torturous sentences of the first five books. Or maybe I was just getting amped for more Harry Potter. "

    " Finished "The Captive." Will read "The Fugitive" in December/January. Upped to five stars in light of "The Fugitive." Incredibly resonant for me at this point in my life. "

    " Who knew that bisexual French shut-ins knew everything? Ok, so maybe just everything about love and jealousy and memory and thought and being a person in the world. The new Proust translation is the alpha and the omega. The Fugitive has some strangle plot parts but the phrasing, imagery, pitch-prefect tone, and oceanic depth of understanding of the thing is impossible but extant. It is humbling and uplifting to read. One wonders, as Virginia Woolfe did, what else is there to write? Quit your job, unplug all your plugs and read this book. Note: this is volume 5 of 6, so the previous 4 are required, plus this book is not in print in the US until 2018, so may be hard to find. "
