User Review  - Smiler69 - LibraryThing

I know it’s a great classic, which is why I read it. But can I just say that I could barely understand what was going on through the whole book without sounding like a complete idiot? I had been planning on reading Ulysses but maybe not. Read full review

User Review  - Nattha - Goodreads

Stylistically amazing. Not really into the whole Irish Catholic guilt thing, but it's an unbelievable read, and I am not at all surprised that it's considered a masterpiece. Read full review
