These are the best three books ever written. Prove me wrong.

Dense, not incoherent. Abstract, not incoherent. I don't know where or when, how or why it got the reputation it has now, but if you're a Joyce fan who hasn't given it a read you really owe it to yourself to do so. You're not going to get much concrete meaning out of many parts, but there is a coherent novel at its core.

I guess you're right, the same reason The Sound and The Fury has its reputation. You aren't allowed to be tough within the first 50 pages.

even if you can only speak english this is wrong. Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Dante, Kafka, Proust and Cervantes made better works objectively speaking.
Also dubliners and portrait are great but not genious

I love Joyce, but I won't agree, Dubliners is an excellent book that uses an array of short stories to detail what life in Dublin was like during the time published and uses symbolism throughout the text to represent upcoming problems and issues Ireland faces as it steps away (with problems) from being British. Excellent book, I rate it with being one of the best, but not the best ever written

Portrait is pretty good, not amazing, Joyce flexed his writing ability for a large part of the book and not much more then that

I haven't actually read Ulysses, can anyone give me some info on it or tell me a bit about it
