Du côté de chez Swann  - Marcel Proust, Elyane Dezon-Jones I'm not sure if my three-star rating is fair. I had to read this one for a class back in...along with lots of other stuff and the pressure was certainly not helping the pleasure. However, I remember that I was positively surprised at that time that the novel wasn't as "hard" and awful as I had anticipated.Besides, The very first sentence is just classy... insane, yes, but also really cool in its complexity.
