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.
