Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language. In his remarkable tour de force, Joyce catalogues one day - June 16 1904 - in immense detail as Leopold Bloom wanders through Dublin, talking, observing, musing - and always remembering Molly, his passionate, wayward wife. Set in the shadow of Homer's Odyssey, internal thoughts - Joyce's famous stream of consciousness - give physical reality extra colour and perspective. Though Ulysses is widely regarded as a 'difficult' novel, this fresh and lively reading shows its comic genius as well as its great moments of poignancy, making it more accessible than ever before.

This version of Ulysses is abridged, which means I’ve listened to it numerous times. The narrators are great and I learned a lot from their rendering, such as when they sing lines that I didn’t know were songs. Highly recommend as a supplement to reading Ulysses because it’s enjoyable, edifying, and friendly.
