    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.

    Overall

    This was my first exposure to Proust. I had mixed feelings. His writing was so finely done, the characters so realistically etched--but the plot seemed to go nowhere at all. I could not even identify the central question of the fiction--clearly a bad sign. Then the book ended abruptly, with no sense of closure. I realize the fault is not that of Proust nor the superb narrator. Rather, this is not a book to be read abridged, or at least not in this abridgement. I recommend skipping this abridged version, and listening to the unabridged.
