    Ulysses is regarded by many as the single most important novel of the 20th century. It tells the story of one day in Dublin, June 16th 1904, largely through the eyes of Stephen Dedalus (Joyce's alter ego from Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man) and Leopold Bloom, an advertising salesman. Both begin a normal day, and both set off on a journey around the streets of Dublin, which eventually brings them into contact with one another.

    A User says: "Ulysses (Unabridged)"
    "Over 27 hours of drivel."

    Story
    What would have made Ulysses better?

    It needed to have some body. There is no point to the story. It needs some entertainment, educational or recreational value. The narrator did an excellent job. That's the only good thing about the book and the only reason I listened from the beginning to the end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Winds of War


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can pick no favorite from a list of no value scenes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Total disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the worst by far of the over 100 audible books I have listened to over the last several years. I would not recommend this book to anyone. It's a 27 hour waste of your time.
