I can recommend
The New Bloomsday Book by Harry Blamires if you're struggling - I found it helpful, as it breaks the novel down into episodes and explains what's going on in each one. But yeah, I really struggled with Ulysses. I'm glad I only had to spend a week writing about it.

Eurgh... currently need to study it for uni. On page 25. Already sick of it. Not sure I see the point of reading a massive novel the author has purposefully completely ambiguous.

What!? I completely disagree. Could you explain why?
Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

Anything that makes you feel like you are a loser and nobody will ever love you (AKA Nicholas Sparks).
Anything that portrays boring love stories in a highly unconvincing way (AKA Twilight)
Anything that has the ability to make you dumber (all the above).
But even WORSE:
The books my mum reads, which were written by a bunch of lunatics that claim to be physics, healers, wizards.... And the worst is that my mum believes everything she reads and often goes like "This book teaches how to deal with... " One I asked "What do you mean by teaches? Who's she (the writer) is she a professor, a researcher, someone whose opinions should count for something?" And my mum said that she was an expert in astrology... Expert in astrology? Any dumbass can say that! Why! Why do people believe this kind of ****? It makes me purple with anger.
And then you bring up a useful topic to the conversation and some people go like "Aw... That is boring! Let's talk about Eastenders or this book some lunatic wrote..."
Sorry about the rant, but sometimes I really do not want to live in this world ANYMORE!
