Ellman breaths life into JJ

great to know more about She the penman. A true genius and life brilliantly told and narrated.

Mesmerising book, partially adequate reading

The book being a true page turner (well, assuming you are interested in Joyce work and life) the listening would have been a great joy too, were it only not for the utterly inadequate renderings of the numerous quotations in French, German and Italian. This fatal stab on Joyce key languages of expression is only partially compensated by the very sonorous and melodic voice with what seems a mild Irish accent that is very fitting for Joyce's quotations in English

Not Unabridged, Strictly Speaking

Any additional comments?

The recording skips the textual notes/comments that are at the bottoms of pages throughout the book. (These are in addition to the numbered footnotes the end of the text.) Deplorable. You will have to buy the book and read this important omitted material yourself. It was misleading to label the recording as "unabridged."

Wonderful book, though.

Worth It

This exhaustive study of Joyce's life was wonderful to listen to, insightful & well worth it. The narrator does a good job of keeping the reading interested & the narrative is easy to follow.
