    It took me several months to read this famous novel about three to get through the first 3 chapters and then a week to complete the rest of itI've always wondered at the draw of this book and to be honest I think I still do To fully benefit from the story and to get the most of out of it it it would help to have some familiarity with Dublin vernacular and some of the cultural references Nevertheless the prose is amazin
