Summary
Still considered one of the most radical works of fiction of the 20th Century, James Joyce's Ulysses ushered in the era of the modern novel. Loosely based on Homer's Odyssey, the narrative follows Leopold Bloom and a number of other characters through an ordinary day, twenty four hours, in Dublin, on June 16, 1904. The text is dense and difficult, but perfectly suited to an oral reading, filled with language tricks, puns and jokes, stream of consciousness, and bawdiness.

This is the worst narration known to audiobooks. Please delete this recording as it will ruin Joyce’s masterpiece for any listener who hears it. Many of the narrators on this recording should be banned from recording anything ever again, free or not.

someone missed quality control on this one! sounds like a bunch of pompous drunk ivy boys got together to hear their own voices, AND... no one listened before it posted. unedited, replete with bumbling and , "Oh, shit, I'm sorry," "I'll just skip that part," and other revelations. It would be hilarious, but, it's not.
