Publisher's Summary

The Ultimate James Joyce Collection comprises his works Ulysses, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Dubliners, a collection of 15 short stories first published in 1914. 

In Dubliners, 15 pictures of Irish middle-class life in and around Dublin in the early 20th century reveal the soul of the nation when the country was in search of a national identity and purpose. 

An oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was Joyce’s first novel. It depicts the awakening of Stephen Dedalus, who questions the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown up. It is considered a masterpiece of modernist literature, 

Ulysses was published in 1922. Loosely based on the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey, it chronicles a day in the life of Leopold Bloom and his friends, Buck Mulligan, Stephen Dedalus, Molly Bloom, and others. Joyce uses stream-of-consciousness, earthy humor, puns, parodies, and allusions, while the narrative reflects various different styles of English literature.

This version did not help me with Ulysses

Ulysses is not an easy book for a reader, and this is the only comment I will make on the book. It is probably not an easy book for a narrator too. Here the narrator failed to help the reader to get through this book. If I only had this version, I would not be able to finish Ulysses. I had to switch to another audio for this book after a few chapters.
