    "Wonderful"

    Wonderful stories. Narrator "lapses" into American pronunciations once in a while but overall reading is very good.

    "Great book, poor narration"

    These stories are so well written, but I found the narration so monotonous it was distracting. I am redeeming another credit to find a narration that can do the stories justice.

    "Can't get past the narrator"

    I think I will like these stories when I can concentrate on them, and not on the narrator. I got to the point where I just could not listen to him any more and gave up. I have downloaded a different version with a variety of known and excellent narrators. I hope I have made a good choice. I want to understand this author, James Joyce, who many consider one of the greatest of all time.
