5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest novel of 20th Century?
Is this extraordinary novel by James Joyce the greatest novel of the 20th Century (as many polls have indicated and many reviewers claimed)? Or is it, as some critics say, all style without substance, all sizzle without any steak? Make up your own mind by reading this well formatted and beautifully illustrated edition. I think it's worth the trouble (even though, I must...

2.0 out of 5 stars you get what you pay for
You will never master this difficult book using this edition, which is the raw text without even the author's chapter divisions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest novel of 20th Century?, 16 May 2013
This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
Is this extraordinary novel by James Joyce the greatest novel of the 20th Century (as many polls have indicated and many reviewers claimed)? Or is it, as some critics say, all style without substance, all sizzle without any steak? Make up your own mind by reading this well formatted and beautifully illustrated edition. I think it's worth the trouble (even though, I must confess, I sometimes find Joyce difficult reading) just to find and relish phrases like the one quoted by another reviewer (Lecancan): "The sea, the snotgreen sea, the scrotumtightening sea."

Beat that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius., 16 May 2013
This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
Haven't finished it yet but this book is sheer class: "The sea, the snotgreen sea, the scrotumtightening sea." Pretty smart edition too, very pleased with the download.

5.0 out of 5 stars Streaming and dreaming, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
I've reached 19% on my Kindle, so it's a big book! Some say it's impenetrable but so far it strikes me as a poem interrupted by a story... of sorts. You have to go with the flow and throw yourself into the stream as it were. Beautiful writing, words abound, using the Kindle dictionary all over the place and Latin pops up everywhere, but it's a joy - like a wonderful dream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying depth of character, 5 Jun. 2014
Rightfully a classic. Joyce's style is inimitable and his use of internal monologue is singularly good in so far as it brings the character right into our living rooms. There is no concession to false sentiment and although his occasional relaxed use of punctuation can occasionally find the reader re-reading a passage, this somehow helps to focus on the acuity of Joyce's shaping of character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in show, 16 May 2013
This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
Here it is the great classic, and I don't really think I can say anything that others haven't said already. It suffices for me to say, go out and read it here on Kindle.

This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
Difficult at times but well worth the effort of imagining these diverse and sometimes tragic characters. Often funny. Incredibly moving.

1.0 out of 5 stars It was meant to be free!, 18 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ULYSSES (illustrated, complete and unexpurgated) (Kindle Edition)
I searched free books and after many free books this one was inserted. I pressed buy and I cannot cancel my order. It was not supposed to be like this. It's not fair.

I want my money back !
