Joyce's Dubliners. I feel like I let those laughably unreadable behemoths Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake unfairly prejudice me against Joyce as Dubliners is fantastic so far.

Just finished the Night Angel trilogy. Good but definitely tapered off as the series went along.

Any recs for my next sci-fi/fantasy tome? Something REALLY good but a bit less known.

Don't count Ulysses out so quickly but yeah, Finnegan's Wake is for assholes. Portrait of an Artist was great too.

Best stream of consciousness ever is going to be Lowry's Under The Volcano IMO. I think that one's my favorite novel ever written.

My 9th grade self still thinks that Ulysses was written purely as a giant middle finger to literary critics and, eventually, English teachers and students.

I discovered this girl I had a brief fling with was a pathological liar when she claimed she loved Finnegan's Wake and had read it multiple times. I'm not sure there is a single person in this world who can truthfully claim such a ridiculous thing.

It's not a 'tome' by any stretch of the imagination, but read Legion by Brandon Sanderson. Really awesome idea and story, and supposedly it's been optioned for a TV show.

For anyone who has a Paperwhite and is struck with a bugged reading progress (for example it jumps from an estimate of four hours for finishing the book to one hour), click the search symbol while in the book and type ;ReadingTimeReset (case-sensitive).
