    Proust - In Search of Lost Time

    Has anyone read the whole six volumes of this novel? Often mentioned as the greatest novel of all time; an epic concerning love and loss, time and memory, the role of art to humans and the transience of life, set within the French aristocracy at the turn of the twentieth century. Not a Jackie Collins type read, but often cited as an example of the greatest of artistic achievements. I've bought the first two volumes, which are now on my 'to read' pile. Anyone completed this epic journey?

    I now have all six volumes and am ready to start to what is described as one of the great journeys in world literature. Being a huge lover of Tolstoy's work, I do enjoy an epic, and this is bloody epic

    Good Luck
