Ulysses

253 Installments

Structured on Homer's Odyssey, this novel follows Leopold Bloom through the course of an ordinary day in 1904 Dublin. Rather than an epic hero, Bloom is a modern everyman adventuring through a cast of rich and poor, scholars and drunks, priests and prostitutes. Often feared for its complicated word play, it more than rewards the patient reader.

First published in 1922 and immediately recognized as a classic of modernist literature, Ulysees stands as one of the greatest novels of the 20th century. Notoriously tough, sometimes obscure, but always worth the effort!

I agree with Michael h in that it is difficilt. I'm not sure I agree it was worth the effort. Read it as someone wrote it was the greatest piece of English literature written. I don't think it's near Shakespeare in quality but it did have it's moments of interest.

Nowhere near the romantic breath of the original Ulysses. Very disappointing.

Stream of consciousness can be hard to read because the flow seems chopping and its hard to follow. When reading think of it more as what people think while living their lives than what they actually say.

I really could not get into this book. I found it so hard to read! I didn't actually get through the book - I ended up deleting about half of the instalments I received so I could start a new book...Kudos to those who can get through this one!
