Volume III of ’s “In Search Of Lost Time” feels like lost time indeed. I’m barely one fifth through it and I can’t see the end. It feels like I’ve been plunged into it for a very long year. Directions of use for some medicines are more thrilling than this.

…so far.

@tripu man, Proust... Just stop right away. Nobody will resent you if you do!


Stopping? No way! I’m stubborn about giving very difficult books a chance. That strategy paid out already for me with other bores/drags which revealed quite good in the end 😊

You should be defending Proust, the master of the French letters! 🇫🇷 😜
