Publisher's Summary

In his first published work in prose, James Joyce paints vivid portraits of the people of Dublin, his city of birth, in a collection of stories whose larger purpose, he said, was to depict a "moral history of Ireland". From the first story, in which a young boy encounters death, to the haunting final story involving the middle-aged Gabriel, the book gives an unflinching and realistic portrayal of "dear, dirty Dublin" in the early 20th-century. This brilliant study is by turns bawdy and witty, but always darkened by a paralysis of spirit and emotions.

Dubliners - Big disapointment

I was hugely disappointed by this. The narrator sounded like he just wanted to get through it. He didn't seem to put any feeling into it. If I had been able to sample it beforehand I would definitely not have bought it. It was a waste of money, for me anyway. I have downloaded one or two other books from Audible and they have been fine. I'm downloading one right now. .I think there is a more expensive audio book of Dubliners. I wish I'd bought it, but then that's taking a chance too! However, it's just my opinion.
