Re: Favorite Lines from Novels

out of curiosity, I read the first few pages of Ulysses on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. when I read this sentence...
Silently, in a dream she had come to him after her death, her wasted body within its loose brown graveclothes giving off an odour of wax and rosewood, her breath, that had bent upon him, mute, reproachful, a faint odour of wetted ashes.
...I knew I had to read the book ASAP. Received it in the mail a couple of days ago. Tackling soon. Wish me luck?
