Incredible novel that is densely packed with philosophical and existential implications, as well as radical experimental (and well executed) writing styles. If you speak English and can think you should read this. Read full review

The most accessible of Joyce's novels, this is an amazing read. I've read it twice, and it was a completely different experience each time. Reading Joyce requires an attentive mind--not recommended for the beach. Read full review
