Started this at the beach and became enthralled. In fact, the last third of the book had me asking the hubby to watch the tot so I could finish. Admittedly, I was worried at first that it would require me to remember a lot from Ulysses, but that didn't pan out. Familiarity with some of the classics does help, but is certainly not required.

There were times in the first 100 pages that I wondered if I wanted to continue. If you feel this way, please be patient. The first third of the book is really setting the stage for the remainder. The plot has plenty of twists and the ending did wrap up somewhat unexpectedly (which is good, I hate it when I figure it all out and then have no real reason to read to the end).
