Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giles | 2/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 1/15/2014

    " Despite the fact Time regained was edited and published 5 years after Proust's death, for me reading this part was far more effective than reading previous parts (excluding In Swann's way ) cause less characters appear in the book. Maybe in few years I will try to read once more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amie | 1/3/2014

    " OK, around page 300 of this, he trips on cobblestones and figures out how to write. What proceeds from there is the only thing that -- ugh -- it's good advice on writing. It seems like maybe they don't tell you to read this b/c they are hoarding it, or they never got to it. "

    " FINI! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Wright | 11/14/2013

    " Please refer to my review of this work as a whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Isabella | 4/22/2013

    " My favorites - Swann's Way, the Guermantes Way, this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ehren Clark | 9/20/2012

    " I have 35 pages left to the six volume Proust's In Search of Lost Time. A serious analysis and commentary at this time is superfluous....I must say every word was a delight. I hope the last 35 pages are as good as the previous 5500. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sebastian Baere | 8/10/2012

    " And it all comes together...more than redeeming all the work's tedious sections (there are more than a few). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Valente | 6/10/2012

    " The End....Started october 1998, finished april 23rd 2012....simply amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 5/27/2012

    " I'll just quote Andrew Hollerhan (quoted by Edmund White) "...much has happened: That is, I finally finished Remembrance of Things Past and I don't know what to say." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dottie | 9/11/2011

    " Sad to end reading this one. Certainly I will return to it in whole or in part in the future -- and yes, life-changing in certain aspects of that cliched statement. I LOVED the discussions with my fellow CR Proustians! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 7/29/2011

    " Such a profound book. It should be required reading for everyone! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathaniel | 6/20/2011

    " (So far) a bombastic finale to the greatest novel of the 20th century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara Isabella | 4/2/2011

    " My favorites - Swann's Way, the Guermantes Way, this one. "

    " This concludes my third AND LAST reading of In Search of Lost Time. May I never lead a Proust book group again. "
