Audible Editor Reviews

Reading Proust's great work, Remembrance of Things Past, may be daunting, but listening is a riveting experience, an insightful, often funny, poetical exploration of character, place, emotion and idea. In this section, the young narrator recalls the elaborate social etiquette and conventions among Combray's first families. Neville Jason is a master at characterizing the multitude of voices and guides us seamlessly through time. After a sampling of this classic, we are tantalized and long to continue.
