Dubliners (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

Dubliners (Wisehouse Classics Edition) - James Joyce 3.5 stars. I rarely read classics anymore but I'm happy I've picked up this one because it was surprisingly good. The short stories are better savored together and in order; they are poignant, beautifully written, wrought through top-notch descriptions and I liked to think about the themes of escape, routine and death. Not a cheery read but not depressive either.

“Ah, there’s no friends like the old friends,” she said, “when all is said and done, no friends that a body can trust.”
