's review
Jul 26, 2007

it was ok
bookshelves: classic-fiction
Read in March, 2003

My displeasure with Dubliners, and my general distaste for James Joyce, is a long-standing fact. I won't waste space here by trash-talking "The Dead" like I usually do. The only story I really like in this collection is "Eveline."

I know, I'm the worst English major ever.

Zee No, you're not the worst English major ever, you are just an honest one. I gave it the same rating. Like I said in my brief review, I hope Ulysses is much better than Dubliners.

Karen good luck

Meeeriams Fleep Aaaah, you know what, I am inclined to agree wit you, lol, and I am currently studying Dubliners as part of my English degree. Eveline to me was the one with the most clarity, the rest just seemed disjointed and messed up, and I suppose it was because it was one of the first experimental works of Joyce, but I lost respect for the fellow, and can't reclaim it.
