I'm at page 200 now. Reading Ulysses is one of my retirement projects.
I have read Dubliners, but not Portrait, but the first section was about Dedalus but the Bloom sections after that are a lot more interesting.

I'm not even trying to understand all the references, but I have a reasonably good idea of what I'm missing. I can see why understanding Ulysses can be a lifetime avocation. If I want to understand it, I'll make a second pass with the research material. But it works for me as just a novel too.
