    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.

    "Perfect, excellent audiobook"
    Overall

    I taught this novel at UC Berkeley years ago and decided to treat myself to someone else reading it. Jim Norton's reading is excellent. And it revealed meanings in the novel that I had not noticed before. Norton is a wonderful actor who brings this text to life. For readers/listeners who find this novel difficult to get into, I would suggest having a guide, such as Stuart Gilbert's "James Joyce's Ulysses: A Study," at hand. Reading or rereading this novel repays whatever effort you put into it.
