Finnagans Wake book Finnagans Wake

James Joyce
FIC JOYCE

4 stars.

Describe the book: This book takes place in "older days" (im not sure how far back it never really says) and it is very hard to understand but what i gathered was it was describing the farm life. In this book you find love, hatred, happiness, and goofiness of the man we know as James Joyce.

Who would you recommend it to: who wants a challenge or if you want to laugh.
