James Joyce, Ulysses

I am thinking of reading James Joyce's work. It is worth...

Finnegans Wake
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Ulysses, James Joyce

Ulysses, James Joyce

It's certainly worth a try -- and if you're not into it, there's no law that says you have to keep at it. I recommend starting with The Dubliners. It's a collection of short stories, so it's an accessible entry point, and if you find you just don't enjoy his style, you can put it down after just one or two stories without feeling like you've given up on an investment.

Reading them in order. Dubliners, Portrait, and then Ulysses. If you can get hold of a good unabridged audiobook of Ulysses, it might be interesting to listen to a reading while you follow along in print.
