    Description

    This compilation contains three of James Joyce's most important and recognisable works. Presented here in the order Joyce wrote them they provide an opportunity to enter his world from the comparatively shallow end of "Dubliners" to the deep end of "Ulysses". "Dubliners" contains 15 short stories in Joyce's intended sequence, each with its own moment of realisation or epiphany, ending with what is considered to be one of the finest short stories in literature, "The Dead". "Portrait" could be seen as the prelude to "Ulysses". It shows the growth of Stephen Dedalus (James Joyce) from a young child to a young man. We see the emergence of the writer and all the elements that forged him.

    "Ulysses" is Joyce's masterpiece. It contains a whole host of writing styles, a lot of new words and experiments with the order the words are presented. It can be challenging at times but the rewards to be gained are incalculable. There are so many layers and levels within the book that if you let yourself become absorbed in it you will be entertained for life. When all is said and done, what "Ulysses" is really about is what it is to be human. I hope you enjoy this recording as much as I did.

    Ulysses!

    All three works are excellent, and are excellently read.

    I would not have the time to read Ulysses in writing, so I am very happy that I was able to enjoy it this way.

    The narration in a very gentle Irish accent, and with a few choice performances, and specifically, using a female reader for the Mrs Bloom was exquisite.

    Amazing

    At last, after several attempts over many years, I was able to finish the beautiful but difficult masterpiece Ulysses, thanks to Tadhg Hynes’ wonderful performance. Hynes’ musical cadence and unaffected accent elevated Joyce’s printed words to a level of beauty and accessibility I wouldn’t have known to hope for! (Kayleigh Payne’s reading of Molly is also fantastic.) And to think that Dubliners and A Portrait (also well read) are included in the single purchase!

    some parts better on paper

    I have read these works by James Joyce in paper copy and I really enjoyed the first two parts, portrait of The Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners, in the audio book format. I think I liked Ulysses better on paper because of the extended and involved detail in many parts of the book. It helps if you can look at it and reason through it or get the references to other things in the narrative. it seems to me that there is so much information that can't be conveyed in the audio format successfully. Maybe that is the idea. We need to listen more than once! The narrator is wonderful and very talented.
