I would have been totally lost without this book. With it, only sort of lost. ( )

Not a bad summary, I guess. I learned quite a bit from it. They kind of cheat in the review of the Penelope episode - rather than discussing what actually happens they repeat the character analysis of Molly Bloom. That's what I'd complain about more than anything else; there are a few different places in the book where the same information is repeated from other places. Still, you'll need a good annotation to make any kind of sense of Ulysses, and this one will probaby be the cheapest. ( )
