    Swann's Way is the first part of Marcel Proust's monumental seven volume Remembrance of Things Past. Here, Proust's vision, psychological understanding and vivid powers of description combine to create one of the most poetic and magical works in all literature.

    How can you go through life without experiencing Proust?s books? Most people do. But, they are missing a great experience. Can I say, comparable in my mind to climbing the Everest? There is something very intimate about Proust?s writing. Until now, I thought that only reading 3,000 pages of Proust?s magic style could create this perfect experience. However, I was wrong. The ?audible? version does it. Like the radio shows in the 40?s, it lets you create your own images and story line. Imagining Proust?s world and characters is crucial in sustaining your interest for this very complex story. Audio does it. Thank you.

    Honestly, when I read Proust, I have a tendency to skip some paragraphs. This is a very bad habit, I know. Audible solves this problem. You have to listen to everything.

    Finally, I was listening while reading the e-book unabridged version. Try it. You will like it. Audio just makes Proust more accessible, more understandable, and more enjoyable. You have this feeling of an intimate conversation in a salon, in this beautiful city of Paris and Marcel is talking to you.

    Overall

    Great book. It combines perfectly history, science, and science fiction. The story looks very believable. Attention to details makes this book a most read. I have bought the hardcover, the e-book and the audible version. All are very good. I really like to read while listening to the audible version. I have noticed some differences between the audible version and the book. But this makes audible more interesting.
