>boring
Experience has shown me over and over that when someone calls a book boring, the truth is that the book is thoughtful and the critic is not. It's a badge of honor for books of substance. Thanks for keeping up the tradition.

That's Bloomsday. Dubliners was published 15 June 1914.

If nobody's going to comment, maybe some of you would at least be interested in this Introduction for the book, written by Anthony Burgess and lost until recently:

It's not always that, a book can be boring. In the case of The Ulysses whoever thinks it's boring is only because has not put any effort in understanding it.

What about Dubliners? Do you find the stories, their progression, their revelations, boring?

I didn't specially like Dubliners tbh, but it's not a boring book. In Dubliners I could not understand the story as a whole, but in Ulysses the point is very clear so I found very funny to read.
