User Review  - Rick - Goodreads

I've only read two books more than once (the other is The Hobbit) and I've read Portrait three times. The opening passage of the author's earliest memory is perhaps the best bits of prose that I've come across. Read full review

User Review  - Christina - Goodreads

Just reread in preparation to teach. HATED it when was assigned to read as a student. Coming to it as an adult was a joy; density/intensity of the text sucks you in. It feels bolder and more dangerous than anything modern I've read lately. Read full review

One of my favorite novels to date. A tale of Stephen Dedalus' triumphs and transgressions along the way to becoming a young man. Beautifully and sometimes horrifically details the boy's actions, his regrets, his shedding naiveté. Read full review

User Review  - jon - Goodreads

I probably read this book for the first time almost 15 years ago, and I've been an avowed Joycean ever since. This is Joyce's first novel, and, unbelievably, it only gets harder from here. This novel ... Read full review
