    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eoin | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

    " The quotes and poetry are pouring out of Proust in this volume. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L. Hager | 12/27/2013

    " Interesting discourse on the many facets of love. Continues the Proust story through volumes 5 and 6. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 12/13/2013

    " The least interesting volumes in the series. I got so bored I actually started to skip entire pages. Things pick up considerably in the remarkable final volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 12/6/2013

    " Completed "The Captive". At times insightful, trivial, tiresome, revealingly descriptive & obsessed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 10/25/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this installment of In Search of Lost Time as much as the others but still beautifully written. "

    " One more to go. Then I get the tee shirt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D | 9/8/2013

    " Long passages of this are almost impossible to read; drop 300 hundred pages and nothing would be missed. And the rest is absolutely great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salvatore | 5/24/2013

    " One more book! This one was pretty epic. Perhaps read at the right time for myself too. The insight and the structure of this one kept me thoroughly intrigued. I'm afraid of the ending, in that there will be a void now in my reading world - no more Proust to attack. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaclyn | 4/3/2013

    " The Captive and The Fugitive were my favorite volumes so far. I loved Marcel's dwelling on love and possession in The Captive and was fascinated by the investigation of what makes the living, living and the dead, dead in The Fugitive and memory's role in cultural afterlife. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dottie | 12/28/2012

    " Began and abandoned 2001. Reread 2006/2007. "

    " I'll write some thoughts about this when/if I have some time this weekend, but for now on with the final volume. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/4/2012

    " do you have a lot of feelings? do you think you can trace depressing patterns in your romantic history that prove that you will never achieve the intimacy you crave? beware of volume five and expect some weird looks from your therapist while you read/consume it into your internal world. "

    " Currently re-reading. Would love to talk with any Proust lovers out there... "
