    " the second half of this book is mostly the author deciding how the other 5 volumes should be written. "

    " Wow, what a beautiful way to come to an end. The novel in its entirety awakens in you a very strong sense of what it means to experience life. The memories the narrator stumbles upon towards the end of this volume, when he is much older, which lead to a revelation that finally inspires him to start writing, tie back to the first description of memory in the scene with the madeleine, and, after all this, reaching this revelation along with the narrator makes you want to loop back to the very beginning and start reading the novel that he just set out to write. Maybe in a decade or two I'll be ready... This book has spanned years of my own life. But it was well worth it. One of the few that I can say has really changed me. "

    " Who know if this is the correct edition, but you get the idea. I've read and loved the other six. This is the last and in a quite Proust-like fashion I've been putting this one off. Ah, delayed gratification, the ecstasy of the unopened book... Take this as a warning, Proust may very well warp your mind. "

    " Well, I have done it! I have read all six volumes of Proust and I am proud of myself. This particular volume was definitely my favorite. It really inspires me as a writer and a spiritual person. Time Regained details the narrator's sense of time, memory, and purpose. It is about life and how it brings a person full circle. Proust was elegant yet simple with words. Sometimes, there are writers who are hard to explain, and I would say Proust could be one of them, but if you read his work he is easy to understand. This particular volume is about aging and change, the sense of the passage of time and how that affects us in mind, body and spirit. It was sublime. "
