I have of late spent a huge amount of time trying to read a bulky and tiresome book,i.e. Ulysses. I have started this book out of sheer curiosity since this book has so many recommendations, appraisals from so many critics, writers and the like. But I could not get hooked in even if I have completed a few chapters. Now i am thinking about quitting it. All i found was the writer,s egocentricity.
