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.
