Britons unable to finish Ulysses - James Joyce Unread

The Teletext Reading Report reported on 4,000 British people on what they are reading and what their reading habits are. Among the results of their findings were the top ten works of fiction and non-fiction that readres have left unfinished, and at number three came James Joyce's Ulysses. I would have suspected Finnegans Wake would have been more unfinished, not by Joyce mind, by readers but perhaps too few begun the book in the first place.

Not too surprising that they wouldn't be able to understand a book written entirely in Dublin slang!

I have just uploaded to my blog a guide to James Joyce in Z├╝rich, where he wrote much of Ulysses - hope you enjoy it.
