the book may be sophisticated and considered as one of best written books out there, but boy is it boring...the chapter lengths are ridiculous if you plan to read at least a chapter a day you hand better have around two hours free. The book is uneventful and its really us following a boy who is whiny and annoying

Joyce's writings are a study requiring free and available annotations via the web.
With patience and a decent annotated text, even Ulysses is wonderful and exciting.

I struggle between 3 and 4 stars for this one. I had to work hard at this but it will stick with me for a while. Chapters 3-4 alone are worth the read. Read full review
