This work shows Joyce's talent. It is well written, easy to follow and portrays characters that the reader can easily like. Man, did Joyce ever change when ego set in. Read full review

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

One does not read Joyce.
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.

One of the worst books that I've ever read, I cannot stand stream of conciousness writing!
