    "BBC does Proust proud"

    An enchanting journey into Proust's greatest work, with the BBC's typical attention to sound quality. A difficult work is made approachable and mesmerising. Recommended to be listened to in the highest quality possible. It's a little like falling into someone else's mind.

    "Beautifully read."

    I could not wait until I found time to listen each day. What a wonderful story made so much more vivid by the dramatisation.

    "So glad I read it!"

    I'm so glad I read it! Reading a book is always better than the watching the film, and listening to a book is so much easier... Even though it lasts almost 6 hours I thought it was worth every minute of my time and I can't wait to get the rest of the series.

    "Absolutely First Class Drama!"

    Any adaption of literature is not really easy. This drama has reached an excellent height to make this complex novel understandable and compelling. Very sensitive, profound voice of narrator and all outstanding actors. Thanks for BBC and fiction factory produced such beautiful work!

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I found this quite hard going. I could not sympathise with the main character, and did not get into this story at all.
