What the community says about Ulysses
There are no comments yet!
- "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."
- "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. "
- "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.""This book is an all time favorite of mine! It's such a good book, the story was so interesting and i could not put it down!"

in What are the best fiction books"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. ""This is a great read, with some really creative stuff in it. A great introduction to interesting writing with lots of adventure."
- "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.""Really great read. I must admit, I first found it a bit hard to get into, but thankfully audible narration is available for this book which was very useful to me. "
- "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."
- "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."
