In Part Two of Within a Budding Grove, young Marcel falls under the spell of an enchanting group of adolescent girls. At first intoxicated by their beauty and athletic energy, he finds it difficult choose between them. But gradually he finds himself drawn to the beautiful Albertine - though without guessing how much she is to mean to him in the future. Within a Budding Grove is the second book of Marcel Proust's monumental, quasi-autobiographical novel Remembrance of Things Past. It was awarded the Prix Goncourt in 1919.

    I thought would spoil the experience, as it was my first audio, but the narrator is exllent, he enriched the characters with brilliant delivery.
