    The Guermantes Way, Part 2, the third volume of Marcel Proust's monumental, seven volume Remembrance of Things Past, continues the story of Marcel's entry into the highest circles of French aristocracy. Having renewed his acquaintance with the enchanting Albertine, who now submits to his amorous advances, Marcel finds himself pursued by the predatory Baron de Charlus.

    Marius says: "Albertine, Charlus and the hissy fit"
    "For listening pleasure, not for Proust study"
    Overall

    This is an unabridged version of The Guermantes Way, Part 2, and therefore not nearly compleate. This is a good story, but this audiobook will not help those who are studying Proust. I planed on using this audiobook to save me the time of reading it for one of my college classes. The unabridged version does not go indepth into the philosophical themes that Proust is famous for. It is however adequate if you are looking for an interesting story.

    Story
    (6)

    Lost in the blacked-out streets of Paris during the First World War, Marcel stumbles into a brothel and accidentally witnesses a shocking scene involving the Baron de Charlus. Later, at a reception given by the Prince de Guermantes, his meditations on the passage of time lead to his determination to embark on his life's work at last. Time Regained is the twelfth and final part of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past cycle.

    Tom says: "It's Proust, for goodness sake"
    "For listening pleasure, not for Proust study"
