Dubliners (Harper Audio Edition)
- By: James Joyce
- Narrated by: Frank McCourt, Patrick McCabe
- Length: 7 hrs and 10 mins
James Joyce revolutionized twentieth-century writing with his "stream of consciousness" technique. While ingeniously innovative and experimental, he was also a keenly precise chronicler of the people, places, and sounds of his native Dublin. In Dubliners, a cast of 15 internationally famous stage and screen actors perform stories that make up a brilliant journey over a human landscape that captures the bleakest of despair to the most blinding of epiphanies.
Great Stories, Poor Performance

Excellent Dramatic Readings
Joyce's stories are more like intense slices of life than traditional stories. The writing is, of course, masterful and the audio readings were the highest professional level. However, I found many of the stories themselves somewhat heavy, serious, and depressing.
