Ulysses by James Joyce For me, James Joyce's Ulysses is not just a novel; it is a complete project. When I first read the book a couple of years ago, I was very apprehensive; I prepared some reference books and articles from the Internet, took a deep breath, and yet was unsure as to whether ...

James Joyce’s dazzling modernist masterpiece
that parallels a day in the life of unassuming
Jewish advertising man Leopold Bloom with the
events of Homer’s Odyssey: it’s a
novel that’s the very definition of the term
‘unfilmable’.  But Joseph Strick
made a BAFTA Oscar and Golden Globe nominated go
of it helped by some outstanding Irish actors
(Milo O’Shea Maurice Roëves T.P.
McKenna Sheila O’Sullivan) who are fully
alert to the musicality of Joyce’s prose:
almost every word in the Oscar-nominated
screenplay was taken directly from the book. 
Wolfgang Suschitzky’s black-and-white
photography of authentic Dublin locations brings
Joyce’s famously detailed descriptions
vividly to life and Barbara Jefford’s
impassioned delivery of Molly Bloom’s
notoriously erotic monologue caused such a furore
that the film was banned from general release in
Ireland until 2000 something that would doubtless
have amused Joyce himself.

"Yes I said yes I will Yes." Review with images

AdvantagesThe best reading experience ever

DisadvantagesIt ends… I will read it again and again and again…

"Ulysses by James Joyce For me, James Joyce's Ulysses is not just a novel; it is a complete project. When I first read the book a couple of years ago, I was very apprehensive; I prepared some reference books and articles from the Internet, took a deep breath, and yet was unsure as to whether I would be able to appreciate such a difficult book properly. The novel has the same structure of The Odyssey, and I honestly don't remember which one of ..." Read review

James Joyce - Ulysses - Not The Audio Book!

AdvantagesAmong the greatest novels ever written.

DisadvantagesYou'd be best to take a few maps,

"Ulysses is both a start and an end. It is the start of something spectacular, exciting, innovative and revolutionary in the medium of the novel, and yet it is also the end of the novel, for post-Ulysses, there is very little left to be said by way of a series of words arranged in chapters and bound under a common name. Of all the modern classics, it is perhaps the most daunting. More so even than Proust's In Search Of Lost Time which seems as broad ..." Read review

The Return of the Lemon Platt

AdvantagesUnique, creative, thought-provoking, Irish, Joyce

DisadvantagesCannot be read just one!

"...into a second novel, with Ulysses (1922). I'll be honest - I did worry about reading Ulysses. As much as I love Portrait now, it was initially a struggle to read. How would I cope with Ulysses. Despite whatever the outcome was to be, I was determined to get it finished. With two lots of four-hour train journeys in a week, and evenings set aside for reading, I was able to start and finish it within five days. This is not something I would actually ..." Read review

Do you really need one...

AdvantagesIt's Joyce.

DisadvantagesHard to read, etc.

"Yes it's the modernist text. Yes it's difficult to understand. Yes it's the forerunner and influence Eliot said he never had. Yes it's unoriginal - it uses the framework of the Odyssey. Yes its set over a single day. Yes each chapter uses a different technique. Yes it is humourous, yes it is linguistically alive, blazing, and pleasingly filthy in places, no doubt you already know which ones. Yes it is long - nearly 1000 pages. Yes the last chapter ..."
