2.0 out of 5 stars Why the formatting change?
I love this story. It's one of my favourites. But this edition ...? In the original text the dialogue is marked with dashes. In this, the dashes have been removed and replaced with speech marks. Why? It reduces the text somewhat. Leave it alone!

Marvellous, haunting, evocative writing. It made me go to Dublin to find the places which Joyce describes.
Most marvellous ending of any short story.

I like this book but it was quite hard to understand with lots of old fashioned words in. I read this book as a project at school and it was one of the best books I read out of five. It gets easier to understand towards the end and very well thought out.
Love it good book.

An enjoyable read but don't expect it to be like the film.which was produced by John Huston before his death.

This is an interesting short story, fantastically well written and with amazing depth in the characters. This books is a lesson in writing for aspiring authors. This is a master class in character writing, but it is also an enjoyable read.
