Masterful performance. Forty hours of poetry.

I tried (and failed) several times to comprehend what was touted as perhaps the finest novel in the English language. I had given up until I heard, rather than tried to read Ulysses. Now I understand: the epic courage it takes to survive the death of a child (Bloom's and Molly's son Rudy) played out iin a single Dublin day. Beyond moving.. Everyone who has given up on Ulysses deserves a chance to get it. Thanks to the Joyce family, the narrator and Recorded Books.

Outstanding reading of Ulysses by James Joyce

If you could sum up Ulysses in three words, what would they be?

Deepens the experience


What other book might you compare Ulysses to and why?

Homer's Odyssey -- it has as intricate plot and more - of course Joyce based his novel on the Odyssey - I also enjoyed the Odyssey as an outstanding Audiobook


What about Donal Donnelly’s performance did you like?

Donal Donnelly understands the book and conveys its meaning magnificently


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - stretch it out - and let it sink in


Any additional comments?

I have wanted to enjoy Ulysses for over 40 years -- this Audiobook has at last made it possible -- reading the Audiobook with the text in front of me enriches the experience further -- it is one of the profounder experiences of life and that is a fact -- thanks for bringing it to me!
