Finnegan's Wake

Finnegan's Wake by James Joyce
628 pages

WHAT THE HELL?
This was, by far, the worst book I've ever read. Over six hundred pages of nothing, words strung together in a way that made no sense whatsoever. No plot and no characters, nothing but a big headache. I feel like I have to teach myself to read again after this; after reading so many tampered with words, I started to second guess words that were real and correct ("Vanilla? What the...oh...wait..."). But, my two months of misery are finally finished, and it's time to move on!
