    so after about a week and a half of being busy and sick retarded my reading i finished it this morning.

    its obviously a work of genius but i dont regard it was one of the best novels i've ever read. i see the value of his being experimental in his writing but as a result too much of it isnt particularly enjoyable to read, although there's definitely a bunch of fantastic writing in it. it probably gets exponentially better with a second reading, but fuck that for a long time. it was pretty exhausting at times.

    best episode: oxen in the sun
    worst: the last. im james joyce the last 40 pages of my novel are going to be a single sentence. fuck you joyce. the actual ending was superb though.

    if you have a wife or girlfriend at any point and watch her about to fall her asleep you can now with the help of joyce pretty much know exactly what she's thinking and that she's mostly cynical about all your activities and doesn't really respect you

    i dont like reading 40 page sentences, it was exhausting. there were some great things about it and i didnt even 'dislike' it really, but of all the episodes i'd definitely rank it last.

    oh wait, no. the chapter with the newspaper headlines was the worst.

    i fucking love circe. if you lose faith in ulysses circe restores it for you. like when he's imagining becoming the prime minister and a prophet and he's imagining the soap he forgot to take out of his pocket burst into song. genuinely hilarious

    the problem i think for ulysses is that it starts with the overly difficult daedalus chapters which aren't really sufficient to fill you with passion
