    This could be considered a weightier, better written Cliff s Notes to Proust, but I found it an indispensable companion for my reading of In Search of Lost Time, given the fifteen year time span that it took me to read it and the complexity of Proust s project of writing an essay in the form of a novel It was helpful for validating my impressions of the big ideas in each segment of the book and refreshing my memory of characters identities, biographies and relationships The historical conte This could be considered a weightier, better written Cliff s Notes to Proust, but I found it an indispensable companion for my reading of In Search of Lost Time, given the fifteen year time span that it took me to read it and the complexity of Proust s project of writing an essay in the form of a novel It was helpful for validating my impressions of the big ideas in each segment of the book and refreshing my memory of characters identities, biograp...

    I m not entirely sure why this book was written It comes off as a slightly heftier Cliff s Notes version of In Search of Lost Time, with the bulk of the pages devoted to plot synopses and character descriptions To devote so much space to the plot and characters of Proust is to miss the point entirely While this might be useful as a bedside reference to help sort out the numerous characters in Proust and for that reason I gave it two stars instead of less , it falls far short of the ground co I m not entirely sure why this book was written It comes off as a slightly heftier Cliff s Notes version of In Search of Lost Time, with the bulk of the pages devoted to plot synopses and char...

    This is a great, non academic guide to Proust The book summaries, character descriptions, and background information are presented in clear language and logical order designed for the readers of Proust rather than for researchers.After second read Confirmed in my opinion that this book is a great support for Proust without having to become a Proust scholar to understand it Having gone through the book twice now, I feel well prepared for the 2013 year of reading Proust Will also be looking This is a great, non academic guide to Proust The book summaries, character descriptions, and background information are presented in clear language and logical order designed for the readers of Proust rather than for researchers.After second read Confir...

    Since reading Proust can take years, this guide provides a useful summary of the books and characters which can serve as a refresher between books I am just about to start book 4, and it s been months since I finished book 3, so the book summaries were a good reminder of the story thus far The short biography and background chapters are also useful On the whole, though, there aren t any great or even new insights here Mary Ann Caws book covers most of the same info found in th...

    This was simply a very very very very long Cliff s Notes It would be helpful as a reference guide, but since it is titled a reader s guide I thought it was going to offer helpful insight as I made my way through Proust s enormous and somewhat treacherous text Rather, it gave boring summaries of everything I just read, including very lengthy often whole page quotes I just read it, so why would I want to read it again here The best section was a historical guide to Proust s Paris, including This was simply a very very very very long Cliff s Notes It would be helpful as a reference guide, but since it is titled a reader s guide I thought it was going to offer helpful insight as I made my way through Proust s enormous and somewhat treacherous text Rather, it gave boring summaries of everything I just read, including very lengthy often whole page quotes I just read it, so why would I want to read it again here The best...

    A very useful reference for those like me who keep forgetting who s who and miss things because they lose track of what is going on by the time they get to the end of one of Proust s long sentences If I was able to maintain focus and read all of Remembrance of Things Past consecutively, maybe I wouldn t need such a guide But If you re like me and tackle the novels with significant time in between, then the character outlines, plot synopsis, contextual points and suggestions for further reading A very useful reference for those like me who keep forgetting who s who and miss things because they lose track of what is going on by the time they get to the end of one of Proust s long sentences If I was able to maintain focus and read all of Remembrance of Things Past consecutively, maybe I wouldn t need such a guide But If you re like me and tackle the novels with significant time in between, then the character outlines, plot synopsis, contextual points and suggestions for further reading in...

    Alright as a reference for overview of the plot and biographical info on Proust Stylistically quite bad though, and I didn t agree with Alexander about which parts of the novel were most compelling and which were boring Also, horrible as a rea...

    I wish that I had read this before I read The Remembrance of Things Past The author provides an excellent summary of the plot, as well as detailed descriptions of each character, and insight into Proust s Paris and the relationship of h...

    Useful to a total newcomer to Proust, and the Character guide a definite plus as one wends one s way through the great work, but as to content, not so hot.
