Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" might be the most important book I've ever read.
14 GoodLordChokeAnABomb yes I said yes I will Yes.
13 PaxAugusta I agree! I've read all of Joyce (from *Exiles* to *Finnegans Wake*) and *Ulysses* is most definitely the greatest novel ever written. It's just... impressive. The emotional rush I felt throughout the book was something I haven't experienced anywhere else, the characters were relatable, and the book was enjoyable. And all that's on top of it being one of the greatest literary achievements. If you're serious about reading it, read Joyce's *Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man* first--the main character is in both books--and then read *Ulysses* concurrently with a guidebook (I recommend Blamire's *New Bloomsday Book*) your first time... but do give it a try. It's worthwhile despite the difficulty.
4 funwiththoughts *Ulysses* is one of the greatest works of art ever created. However, I don't consider it one of the greatest novels ever written, because calling it a "novel" is stretching a bit. It's its own medium.
9 vandercryle > Aldous Huxley called it “one of the dullest books ever written” This is ironic. Personally, 'Brave New World' actually is one of the dullest books ever written. I think I'll give Ulysses a chance.
6 lastrada2 "totally"
3 the_ragamuffin Absolutely the best book I've ever read. It changed everything about reading and writing for me. I finished my first read of it a year ago -- the time I spent reading it was the best time I have ever spent with a book. A year later I'm still not done with it. I don't think I ever will be.
2 Negative_Splace I managed to power through it at university. Never got very far with Finnegan's Wake tho..
5 Blutstuhl After 50 pages i loughed and never touched this book again.
5 fabrar I feel like this is one of those books people pretend to have enjoyed in order to seem sophisticated. I'm no stranger to difficult novels and have even enjoyed some notorious ones like Infinite Jest, Moby Dick and Faulkner's stuff, but this one is just unbearable to read.

1 guitaoist1987 Um wasnt it released 2/2/22? Brilliant book tho took me a year to finish, same with FINNEGANS WAKE

1 zxch Is it worth reading Ulysses?
1 li-he i always thought Ulysses was published in 1922, not 1918. What gives?
1 behemotrakau I read russian translation last year. And I liked it. Sincerely I just passed some chapters, like the 14th which in russian translation was useless to read. But generally it was worth reading.
1 offenderWILLbeBANNED This books gives me massive headache
-7 rattatally *Ulysses* is one of the most boring pieces of trash I've ever read. It is truly a terrible, terrible book. The only reason it is still a thing is so that college freshmen can pretend being intellectuals.
