    Story

    In this first part, Proust paints an unforgettable, scathing and, at times, comic portrait of French society at the close of the19th century, and reveals a profound vision of obsessive love.

    Maggie says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "A masterpiece beautifully read"

    Story
    Would you listen to Remembrance of Things Past again? Why?

    Yes. The language is so rich, the ideas so prescient, the characters so vibrant, I am already listening to passages over again.


    What does John Rowe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's fascinating to see where John Rowe places his emphases, his pauses, his intonation, without over milking the text. A truly impressive reading.
