Are people who say JJ’s “Ulysses” is a “fun read” delusional, or am I?
– I’ve seen a few people on Reddit recommend Ulysses as an interesting and fun book. While I appreciate Ulysses as a high-depth novel that shows what a novel can do, it is by no means engaging or “fun” to read. It is the opposite. It is the most draining, least flowing, least readable work I’ve ever read, despite knowing what kind of writer JJ is. There are literal guides on how to read this book and most people take MONTHS to read it alongside annotations that are **needed to explain what’s going on**.
I’ve just finished the book and feel like I spent $300 on a gross tiny molecular cuisine dish in hopes that it will change my life (it didn’t) instead of going to a buffet with all my favourite shit for $30. Like I spent ten hours looking at a modern art installation instead of going to the cinema to watch my favourite movie. Like I spent an hour listening to an abstract-post-noize-jazz album instead of singing to my favourite song in the shower for 3 minutes. I could go on, because my disappointment is immeasurable, but I think you get the point. Please do not recommend it to anyone who isn’t already willing to read it.
