    1. An updated Dubliners, or perhaps aptly put, a homage The stories themselves are uneven with some real gems interspersed amongst those that left me cold The stories have a heartbreaking preoocupation with old people being put away, dying or trudging by themselves in deep lonliness, the best of them being Roddy Doyle s account of a man who without much concious thought has withdrawn socially and is now trapped and alone Two other standouts were Benny gets the blame which brought a much needed ela [...]

    2. I had seen reviews of The New Dubliners, reviews that caught my eye and made me mildly curious to pick up the book despite my rather intense hatred of James Joyce In fact, in order to better compare and contrast between the original and the new versions, I even re read James Joyce s Dubliners confirming, once and for all, that I cannot STAND James Joyce Still, I recognized one or two of the authors who contributed to the New Dubliners and decided to still go ahead and read it It s not my favorit [...]

    3. FIRST OF ALL, THE EDITOR IS THE EXCELLENT OONA FRAWLEY, NOT IVY BANNISTER I DON T KNOW HOW NEW ISLAND BOOKS OR PEGASUS BOOKS HAS ALLOWED ERRONEOUS EDITORIAL INFORMATION ON THE BOOK S RECORD IVY BANNISTER IS THE AUTHOR OF ONE OF THE STORIES 3.5 stars I think this is a far, far, superior collection than the Thomas Morris edited DUBLINERS 100 Frawley s pithy introduction captures the essence of each story in a sentence, which is no mean feat I don t believe all the stories are effective, but I was [...]

    4. This is a book about how Dubliners view themselves Published in 2005, this book is now a time capsule in a way that probably was not intended It aimed to connect the pre crisis Ireland with its pre century forebear via Joyce, to highlight similarities and differences between the modern read rich Ireland of 2005 and its 1905 poor predecessor Reading it 2012, the whole project appears skewed, almost startling in its innocence of the near future from which it was created, let alone the deep past re [...]

    5. As a class we read James Joyce s Dubliners before heading off to Ireland for 12 days While in Ireland, we were tasked with reading New Dubliners Being able to relate the three made for a deeper understanding and a complete visit to Ireland It was interesting to see how New Dubliners was similar and different to Joyce s Dubliners I would strongly recommend to anyone planning to visit Ireland to read both books in the order I did, and really think about and compare both books to each other as wel [...]

    6. Dublin is like the rest of Europe and the West than 100 years ago But stories are being told in language and phrasing unique to Ireland A wonderful homage to a great writer and a book that revealed the spirit of a country and its Dubliners.

    7. i tink some of it was lost on me via jargon, and although there were a couple of really gorgeous lines and i could feel the city through them, i was not so impressed overall granted, maybe this is because i d rather discover dublin in the streets than in the books

    8. Really excellent stories I wish I had a class or book group so I could spend some time discussing how they comment on Dubliners.
