Featuring a fictional version of himself - 'Marcel' - and a host of friends, acquaintances, and lovers, In Search of Lost Time is Proust's search for the key to the mysteries of memory, time, and consciousness. As he recalls his childhood days, the sad affair of Charles Swann and Odette de Crecy, his transition to manhood, the tortures of love and the ravages of war, he realises that the simplest of discoveries can lead to astonishing possibilities.

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.
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.
I could not wait until I found time to listen each day. What a wonderful story made so much more vivid by the dramatisation.
Narration was brilliant felt like you were in the audience of a play than a book highly recommend downloading it
"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!
Entertaining, well-performed & enjoyable.
There is nothing like In search of lost time!
Very well read and he helped to set the scene perfectly.
no extreme reaction
It was a delightful way of getting an overview of the very log story despite the fact that I have listened to a 33 CD version also.
The story is so relatable and captivating. The narration was done very well and the dramatization helped to understand every character better
"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.
