Rezension bezieht sich auf: How Proust Can Change Your Life (Vintage International) (Taschenbuch)
I have read Proust, thank you very much. And I've read this book as well. It is well worth the five stars. I hate to be rude, but I can only imagine that those folks who give it one star are the same folks who read Proust just to say "Hey, everyone, I've read Proust, look how smart I am." They are, I think, threatened by any book that might make entry into their pompous little cabal more accessable to the average person. I knew these sorts of folks back in school. There is a word for them, but I can't mention it here.
P.S. I haven't bothered to proof-read this message for grammatical or spelling errors, so feel free to criticize these at will, if it helps distract you from the actual content of the message.
