I survived! Wow! This study of an Irish Catholic boy on his journey to becoming an artist was hard to get through. The style and themes were interesting, but the religious bits, particularly the struggle over his soul's salvation made me feel like I was walking backwards waist deep through mud. I was clearly unprepared for this particular piece of literature, but am grateful, regardless, that I was able to muddle through it.

Been there. Done that. To quote the Grateful Dead, "What a long, strange trip it's been".

I very much enjoyed this, although I found that many passages from the last section of the book escaped me. But certainly a worthwhile read.

A much more accessible work for someone who wants to try reading Joyce. Definitely easier than Ulysses! Prose is gorgeous, well worth any effort it takes to get through it.

You made me confess the fears that I have. But I will tell you also what I do not fear. I do not fear to be alone or to be spurned for another or to leave whatever I have to leave. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake and perhaps as long as eternity too.
