This is, hands down, one of the top five or six novels I've ever read. As a key text of the early twentieth century, Swann's Way should be read by... well... everyone. I only wish I could read French well enough in order to read it in the original (someday, hopefully). While Proust's style can be dilatory to the point of being annoying, it's charm is undeniable. For example, one of my favorite sections of the novel is in the first part, where the narrator describes Legrandin. Instead of saying, "he had recently become a bit of a snob," the narrator instead provides a 6-page example which illustrates the particular nature and character of that snobbishness. If nothing else, reading Proust will force you to recall memories which you had no idea you had.
