    "Definitely a classic for the ages. If you somehow haven't read this yet, you need to give it a go now."

    "Modernist novel. Tracks the life of the protagonist through a typical day in Ireland in the early 1900s. Notoriously complex and difficult to read, this book has attracted varied reviews, with some reading it multiple times to try and capture its meaning."
  • Raquel de los Santos

    "Ulysses IS the definition of an antinovel. I have to admit, I don't understand it at all. Entire courses are taught studying this text, and alas, I never took one. But this is exactly what I was looking for, something completely different than everything I've read in my life."

    "If you can actually make it through Ulysses from start to finish, you will not be disappointed. This book has earned its place on nearly every top 100 list. It can sometimes be a challenge for all readers, but it is one of the best novels to come out of the 20th century."

    "In an episode of Gilmore Girls Rory is seen reading a guide to the book Ulysses by James Joyce. I decided to read the book for myself since it is supposed to be a classic. I thought it was a decent read but a bit hard to get through. It is difficult to follow along sometimes."
  • Howard Gilbert

    "You know those guys who use difficult words in conversation to seem smarter than they are? You know how you hate those guys? Well this is the same type of guy, he just started doing that same thing a long time ago and now it's just accepted as if he's mastered the English language. Don't believe the hype, James Joyce can catch these hands."

    "I never truly appreciated just how great this story was until later in life. Greek and Roman mythology is rich with so many amazing stories and this couldn't have been a better introduction to all of that."

    "Ulysses is an audio book that you can listen to for free. It is a James Joyce classic taking place in 20th century Ireland. You will find this audio book enjoyable. You do not have to download it in order to listen. "

    "I think this is a great book for anyone to read, and it's free. That is a wonderful combination. There is no good reason to not get this book. "

    "I did not enjoy this book at all and found it very hard to read. I found it very complex and difficult for me to understand and follow the story line. The writing style of the author was very elaborate and I was not sure I understood some of the references."
  • Divya Verma

    "Ulysses is a very well known work of literature by James Joyce. Joyce's work has had a large impact in literature in his time and it can still be observed today."
  • Randy Tran

    "While I'm personally not very knowledgeable on this book, I have heard great things about it from friends and family alike. With that in mind it's also free and able to be read on iPad, so it fulfills everything you'll need."
  • Vincent Berry

    "Though a tough read for many readers, this novel still stands as one of the greats in a crowded field. The prose throughout the book will keep readers engaged as they learn about the history of mythology through the eyes of what was a modern day being."
  • Maria Rivera
    Written on April 27, 2018
    "This is one of the greatest books of all time by one of the greatest Irish author's of all time, James Joyce . It is a long hard read a lot of times and some parts are slow, but if you stick with it, you'll find it was worth it in the end. There are 800 pages, so it's easy to get intimidated, but the characters and prose are beautiful and emotional. Very glad I read it. "

    "Wanting to increase my knowledge of certain books, I picked up Ulysses. This has been rated as one of the greatest books ever. I started to read it and I was blown away. James Joyce hit a home run out of the park with this, as I was able to encapsulate myself in Greek mythology."

    "I hated this book in high school, but fond it cheap and read it on a whim. Much better the second time around now that I am older. Keeps to original tale while also picking up the culture in ireland at the time, The reading can be a but to process but the content is good. "

    "A very difficult to read book. It's a very literary kind of book and not for one who is a casual reader."
  • Thomas Patel
    Written on February 21, 2017
    "Some say Joyce's Ulysses is the greatest novel of the 20th Century. I have to say i completely agree. This book is everything, so imaginative, so profound in it's sources and as Nabokov says, it should not be read as an analogue of the classical "Ulysses" but a a piece in itself. Above everything else, I think it is a comedy, one of the most hilarious books ever written and one of the most literate and enjoyable books ever."

    "I read a lot of books. I cannot afford to pay for a new book every time I finish one. A friend showed me Ulysses. I love Greek Mythology so it keeps me interested. It is the best free resource for this type of book. I am really happy I found it."

    "Ulysses is hands down, a classic. It's one of those books that every single person needs to read. Now that you can get it for free as an audio book, you have zero excuses! It's the best that you'll find and it won't cost you a dime."
  • Norma Vargas

    "My high school sophomore year (high school) English literature teacher would probably not agree more. I can't imagine him not including Ulysses on the list, he was a total James Joyce fanatic. I haven't read it, but if The Picture of Dorian Gray isn't on this list, discredit it entirely!!"

    "Great book for those aspiring to learn more about Joyce. The option of having available in different formats as well is wonderful as you are able to choose if you want to read it on the go with your kindle. You may also get the hard cover book. Audio options are available as well. This is an enjoyable story which you may need some help to understand, but lots of support materials are out there as well."

    "This is an extremely long novel that I didn't particularly enjoy. I tried reading it but I found the prose was difficult to process while the story just didn't capture my attention. I know this story has a lot of fans, unfortunately I am not one of them."
  • Willie Garrett
    Written on April 26, 2018
    "A classic book, and rightfully so. If you haven't read it yet, it belongs with other modern classics like Moby Dick and The Lord of the Rings that everyone should read at least once."
