Bloomsday

Let's face it. If you haven't read James Joyce's ULYSSES by now, you're probably not going to. But what you could do instead on this fine day is check out Adrian McKinty's THE BLOOMSDAY DEAD. It's the book I describe as the "bastard child of Tony Soprano morality and James Joyce literacy". Gotta be good, right?

Right.

That's a great book.

Nice plug, and I agree, but no one's off the hook on Ulysses as far as I'm concerned. Maybe read The Bloomsday Dead first and then read Ulysses so that you can get the references...

Read this last week (about time an' all) and it absolutely rocked. The tension builds and build to a truly satisfying climax.

And yes, I was still talking about the book.

Paul - T'is indeed.

Seana - I'll try and get around to it...

Mike - Nothing sorts out tension better than a satisfying climax. Ahem.
