Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul C Graham | 2/7/2014

    " Moments of clarity and beautiful prose. "Twas like reading a collection of short stories that were stacked and thrown in the air and gathered together in any old which way. I understand what Joice was trying to do, but do not understand why he would spend his time and talent doing it. NOT (in my humble opinion, one of the greates novels in the English language. Perhaps one of the most disjointed and obtuse, but perhaps that is the standard of greatness in modern Western anti-culture. I was happy as hell to finisih it. "

    " I first tried to read this book when I was 17 and doing the coffee house thing. Didn't get very far. Tried it again in my 20's and this time managed to make it halfway through. I'm an impatient sort of person but in my early 30's I tried it again and wow! I guess I was ready for it. I love stream-of-consciousness and my mind is always clicking away from the lofty to the depths of disgust, so feel a kinship to the characters. Today, when I saw the quote in my email box, I immediately recognized the words even though it's been decades since reading the book. I can't remember things I've read yesterday, but James Joyce's words will always reverberate in my mind... "

    " This is quite possibly the greatest book ever written in my humble opinion. "

    " Is it possible to like something even though it made you want to die? "

    " Interesting. Will give another go! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leon | 12/21/2013

    " Sincerely marvellous piece of written art, frustrating sometimes yet so powerfull all the time, I've had the pleasure to read. "

    " victory! got through it! and, even more impressive, i actually think i understand what happened! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooks | 12/11/2013

    " This edition only has a bad rep because of wikipedia. "

    " OMG- it's like this guy won't shut up. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Margaret | 11/4/2013

    " There are many books that I won't bother make a comment on, but I kept hearing that this was a masterpiece. Joyce hated Catholics, Jews & Women. I can only guess that it was Protestant Men that thrust this book into a classic. I had to FORCE myself to finish it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allison | 8/1/2013

    " Not a fan at all. Did not like the plot. Least favourite book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haley | 8/5/2012

    " Really f---ing funny, but you usually need a study guide thicker than the book to follow along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma Stone | 5/30/2012

    " Not a novel. Not quite prose or poetry. Read this because my then English teacher bet me I wouldn't. So of course I won that bet. Takes the definition of meaning and meaningless around in a circle together. I love Joyce's work but I don't love this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane Hallam | 11/28/2011

    " Reviewing this book would need its own forum or full-semester class. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeti | 9/22/2011

    " Amazing, as in I thoroughly enjoyed reading it despite having no idea what exactly I was reading... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Souzen | 6/6/2011

    " Sadly, like so many other ambitious readers who fancy themselves a tad smart, I was disappointed to discover that I just could not slog through this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 5/23/2011

    " It lived up to its reputation for being hard to read. It was extremely difficult to read and sometimes painful, but it was worth it. Joyce's novel is hundreds of levels above any other novel I've ever read. What he was able to do in this book was absolutely amazing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rubio | 5/23/2011

    " Un libro ideal para personas que sufren de insomnio crónico... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rene | 5/6/2011

    " this book requires a very open approach. it's not an easy book to read, but it's an original and kind a revolutionary way to tell the story. even thou it's the favourite, it is an important read that everyone should have a go at.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoffrey | 5/5/2011

    " I'm on chapter 9 (Scylla and Charybdis) and I have to say this is by far one of the best works I have ever read.
    "

    " One of my all time favourites "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 4/25/2011

    " Yeah, everything you've heard is right. Maddening and totally brilliant. Doesn't make sense at times, at all times is wondrous. "
