    Every story is painfully real and fills me with nostalgia for lives I’ve never lived. Some are cuter than others. Some are sadder than others. I loved them all. Plus in my opinion it seems like he got carried away with each story he wrote because they become weirder and Longer

    This book took a long time to read because it deserves time. Not a quick read. I liked most but not all of Dubliners. I liked both Portrait of the Artist and the poem Chamber Music. It's a lot of work to read these stories based on their complexity and use of language not typical of current times. This book took a long time to read because it deserves time. Not a quick read.

    L'hauré de tornar a llegir després de mirar els apunts que té la juliana. Em sap greu perquè no l'he llegit gaire atenta i tinc la sensació que no l'he gaudit suficient, però bé, a poc a poc.

    I enjoyed the short stories in Dubliners. I found A Portrait, long, drawn out and not easy to read. The poems of Chamber Music were good.

    In high school, I read Joyce's work, and never could fully appreciate it. So, I reread it this winter and discovered what an incredible writer he is, and how masterful he really is with words and sentence structure. I don't think I could write an entire book in a stream of conciousness like that. In high school, I read Joyce's work, and never could fully appreciate it.

    Now reading "Counterparts" from Dubliners, a so far brilliant James Joyce collection of short stories, followed by his first novel and lyrical poetry.

    Joyce is an excellent writer but this (did not read "portrait of the artist..." Or poems at end) was a little too ordinary and drab for me. I did like the last few pages of "the dead," very much.
