5.0 von 5 Sternen A great writer, perhaps not his best book, 26. Januar 2000
I love this writer. He's clever, funny, touching. This isn't his best book, for that check out How Proust can change your life and On Love, but once you sample how good he is, you'll start to love whatever he does.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: On Love (Taschenbuch)
If you've ever been in love, this is the book for you. It's the finest analysis of love I think I've ever read. It's deep but reads extremely simply and easily. Anyone who enjoys this should also take a look at the author's other book, How Proust can change your Life. both of them are minor masterpieces.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A gem of a book, 26. Januar 2000
There are few works of literary criticism that have touched me as much as this one. Botton brings a lightness of touch to the deepest ideas, and what shines through is how funny and observant he is. I had never read Proust, and I don't know if I will even now. It's wrong to read this book as some kind of guide to Proust - a dummy's guide. It's far more than that, or rather, it's not really interested in teaching something like for a college class. It feels like a personal, intimate book - where the author, via Proust, discovers some essential things. Buy it.
