  • A version that wonderfully proves the greatness of this novel, this novelist

    Melvyn Bragg, Guardian
  • What a genius! Whole pages cascade, like great jazz slaloms

    Bill Nighy, The Times
  • One of the cornerstones of the Western literary canon

    The Times
  • It's a novel with zero plot, but the narrator's brilliant analyses of everyday experiences more than make up for it. I've never read a better description of what it feels like to fall asleep

    Alain de Botton, Mail on Sunday
  • The plot is as gripping as any soap opera, the jokes come thick and fast...Proust's is a world entire - so why not take it with you anywhere in the world?

    Will Self, Independent on Sunday
