This is the first James Joyce book I have read and I think that the writer is a great storyteller.
In fact, I think, James Joyce's Dubliners is not a collection of 15 short stories, cause they are connected. The 15 stories present snapshots of the lives of common people in Dublin around the beginning of the 20th Century.

After reading it in school I don't really know, what to think about. Now, years later, I think it is is simply amazing. So read it... and release it. (c;

It's here!

Thanks a lot polarwolf, I'm really glad I'll be able to read this one in english.
Right now I've got many other things to get to and read first, but I promess to come back here and journal it as soon as I finish it as well as to release it afterwards.

And thanks for the great postcard as well. ;-)

How great it was to get to it again! I was a bit afraid of having some trouble understanding it in english but I didn't (exception made for some words, of course, but that's usual with almost every book and I generaly get the meaning of it).
I thought I didn't remember any of it (only the general concept) but when started it began coming back to me and I could remember almost every character or, at least, most of them.
The one thing I did not remember was that this book was written by a 25 year old and that IS amazing! I wish I could talk half as well about people around me, just imagine to write about them!

Thank you so very much, polarwolf, for this opportunity!
I'll start thinking of a great way to keep it moving now...
