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.

Wonderful

Any additional comments?

I have wanted to read Proust for a while now, but was always a little daunted so opted for this wonderful BBC production and loved it. I now feel ready to start all the seven original/unabridged novels. Highly recommended.
