This edition is a crime.  Seriously.  If you love books, don't buy this.  FInd a used copy from a REAL publisher. This book appears to be an OCR scan of another edition or someone dumped a edition for e-readers into a text file and printed it.  That someone is selling for their own profit (B&N?  Care to chime in?)  The book is typeset using block paragraphs which is hideous.  Strange recurring typos. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

What can be say for this book that has not already been say? I add this new translation is very fine for the English ear and will be a very fine introducion to many wishing to begin Proust but do not have learned French.

If there is a better book to read on a desert island then tell me. This book is meant to be read leisurely and slowly. Its prose produces a hypnotic effect with its elaborate detail. You will never see love treated in a more delicate but at the same time more analytical manner. The detail can get a little overwhelming at times but in the end its worth it. this book is not for the casual reader. I would not say it was the greatest book I have ever read but maybe i'll change my mind after I read the other volumes.

Among the greatest works in the history of literature, it sits on my shortest bookshelf with Baudelaire, Goethe, Homer, D.F. Wallace, Dostoevsky, Durell.
