It’s been a long time since I’ve read such a good sci fi book. I was beginning to think the likes of Foundation were done. Highly recommended!

A rollicking adventure! The original Dark Knight!! And fantastic performance. I was genuinely sad when it ended. Lots to think about too; life, death, love, revenge...

Must hear before must read!

What made the experience of listening to Ulysses the most enjoyable?

I'm not sure how you'd ever understand this without first listening to it? I listen to it while driving to work everyday and am constantly amazed by Norton's ability to portray the different characters as well as deliver what at times sounds like very complicated text. Having listened to hundreds of hours of books from the Iliad to the latest thriller, Norton is one of the very best!So how about the book? I'm not sure yet...at times it's laugh out loud funny, at times like stepping back into Dublin of the era with carts, trams and people whizzing by. While at other times it's more like an acid trip. Even then it's cool to

What other book might you compare Ulysses to and why?

Moby Dick. Might seem weird, but the language at times (

Which character – as performed by Jim Norton – was your favorite?

Stephen Daedalus...esp. drunk. Funny and believable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No way! At times I have to take a break bec sections were pretty dense. At other though I'd just lie down with my head phones on and listen.

Any additional comments?

A great idea would be to listen with the book in hand (esp. if you have an eReader) because there are so many words and historical characters that I would have liked to look up.
