In the hands of Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan, experienced and stimulating Joycean readers, and carefully directed by Roger Marsh, Ulysses becomes accessible as never before. It is entertaining, immediate, funny, and rich in classical, philosophical, and musical allusion.

Ulysses is trying
Said to be the best book of the 20th century. Certainly is was groundbreaking. Just a touch listen. Lot of work. But worth it.

Easier than reading it
Everyone knows that Ulysses is supposed to be impossible to read, it is, I've tried! Here is the answer. This version is beautifully narrated, almost acted, as Jim Norton takes on many different voices. The chatacters really come to life. The story is still difficult to follow but it is easy to appreciate the writing and just listen. In some ways it is like listening to good music, you can just lie back and appreciate it without needing to follow the story. I recommend it.

This audio version helped me get through this very challenging book, which was assigned for a graduate-level literature course. The readers were very entertaining and definitely helped with interpretation and comprehension.
