On page 39.

I kept reading, rereading, making notes (almost in a meditative trance) . This is not an easy book. You have to visualize, make connections and get the bigger picture.

I once reached page 82, then again decided to reread, this time so many times till I got the correct connections

Monsieur Swann is an interesting character it seems…

Brilliant work by a genius!!!

  1. Enjoy! I read the 7 volumes a few years ago. I have a friend who has read it all 5 or 6 times, precisely to be more aware of the many connections between the books. You will have long boring passages, mostly in book 3 for me, but as you know, that’s worth it, because suddenly you get this beautiful passage. And volume 7 is excellent, so you have to persevere to the end!

      Thank you so much for the comment…
      What I like about Proust is his approach towards writing, the way he constructs sentences, the total flow is mesmerizing…
      It would take some time to get used to his style, and often I had to reread as well, but it’s totally worth it 🙂
      Really excited to continue further…
