A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, by James Joyce: It’s not going to make any sense to someone who does not have the same consciousness!

Okay, maybe it’s just me, but I really really do not like Modernism stream of consciousness. It makes no sense to me. Okay, maybe it would be fun for the author to write something in his stream of consciousness, but honestly it’s not going to make any sense to someone who does not have the same consciousness! So yeah, I guess this book is really artistic in how he’s portraying his artsyness, but to everybody else who does not share that consciousness, we are all left completely lost. I had a really hard time trying to follow his thinking. A lot of it was really dry and boring and the whole book dragged from start to finish.

This is just my opinion of course. I’m really not accustomed to this style of writing and maybe if I took more time, I would appreciate it more. But I still don’t like it and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who actually enjoys reading.
