In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description. I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
Ulysses - James Joyce Clearly this novel has won, perhaps wrested the honor of the most difficult book I've yet read. Stream-of-consciousness has always been rough reading for me especially when you add more to the mix than predator / prey motivation. But, when you factor in the human element (why do I exist, what is my reason for living, etc. etc. etc.) it just becomes a journey that requires a slow and simple step.

Take care with this novel. It's well worth reading but it will not rest quietly inside your mind. Methinks that was Joyce’s intent…
