started reading Swann's Way by Marcel Proust

Swann's Way (Paperback, 2004, Penguin Classics) 5 stars

Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time is one of the most entertaining reading experiences …

The title should not be Swann's Way but A la recherche du temps perdu. This is the title that Proust gave to a series of books that would be like chapters in one long book called A la recherche. The total is more than 4000 pages and although many claim to have read it in its totality it's assumed few have. I had read separate books during my life but not the whole. A la recherche du temps perdu is comprised of the following books each well over 600 pages: Du côté de chez Swann A l'ombre des jeunes filles en fleur Le côté de Germantes Sodomie et Gomorrhe La prisonnière Albertine disparue Le temps retrouvé

It took me a while, not an easy work so can't read casually. Something important that was on my bucket list that I'm glad I can check as "done".

Incredible work with incredibly enlightening …
