I Can't do it, It fell in my toilet and didn't dry well, and I'm accepting it as an act of god. I decided against burning it, and just threw it out.
Yes, I am a horrible person.

Ruth I appreciate honesty.

Jimmy haha, me too. I'll try it again in the summer perhaps. I feel like a jerk because it's on those top 100 lists... but damn is it slow and confusing.

Jimmy haha, I knew that was coming... you and wilk are gonna beat me with belts or something.
Or talk me into trying to read it again, i don't know which would be worse.

Jimmy you and your latin homosexual threatenings.
tsk tsk

Jimmy You will fail cause it'shorrible. Enough said.

Aaron I love this book. Yet, I understand your hatred for this book.

No, you're not a horrible person. Yo're just honest.

Charmaine Lol. This review actually makes me want to read the book to see how horrible it is.

Jonathonz Ulysses without Gifford Annotated is absolutely unreadable unless you enjoy reading without understanding a damn thing about what the hell is going on. With it, it's very amusing and profound.

William Evan Understandable. A difficult read. Once you're ready to go on a journey,and grow some balls, you might come out of the story with a more enlightened state of mind. I hope next time you'll dry your ass better, for your pants' sake.

Ali F. laughed out loud :D

Jacqui Brazil I say hurrah! The toilet was the gods speaking to you! I gave my copy away! Never again will it attempt Joyce - my daughter on the other hand enjoyed Dubliners?! For some reason...

message 18: by Jalawa (new)

Jalawa I came across this book earlier this week and thought to buy it. Needless to say, I went with another one. Maybe, your hilarious review will almost make me look at getting it again. Btw, I love the brutal honesty.

Alicia The only reason I finished this book was because I've always finished a book I've started. I can't count how many times I wanted to quit, though. Glad I'm not the only one.

Danie hahahahah!!!! one of the best review ever!!! I tried to read it years ago but I'll give it a try after I finished few other books

Rebecca Lowrance Jimmy, don't feel bad. I understood about .03% of what I read of that infernal book. If I had only been lucky enough to drop it in the toilet...
