“…it’s a book associated with dificulty whereas, in fact, it should be associated with joy.”

Here is a short, 2min, book review of Ulysses by writer Stephen Fry. It’s one of the first videos that appears when entering “Ulysses by James Joyce” into Youtube search.

I feel like if I, or anybody else, were stuck in a room with nothing to do but read Ulysses for a month, I would come to enjoy and understand it as Fry does in this video.

Fry is wrong about one point in the review, however; the last words are not “Yes, yes, yes.” They are “Yes I will.”
