Aweome but only 2 chapters?????

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but with the caveat that it is only excerpts, not the entire book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Finnegans Wake?

the entire reading is lyrical and melodious, just like Joyce intended it to be, I imagine. Its hard to extract one part as "the most memorable". It's not a romance novel. The whole book is a masterpiece.

Which scene was your favorite?

the scene where I wasted 10 minutes of my life completing this silly box form:)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Lots of fun at Finnegan's Wake!
