    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.

    "It's not the book, it's the narrator!"
    Overall

    I have wanted to read Ulysses, but found it really difficult to listen to. The narrator Jim Norton talks very quitely and then when doing the voices gets really loud to the point of yelling at you. I still wish to read the book but this was not the best telling of it.
