    I know you re supposed to love this book because it s Faulker, but I HATED IT I know you re cool and intelligent if you read Faulkner, but I can t stand him Sorry, I don t know what he s talking about and at the risk of sounding immodest, I am bright I DON T think it s cool and hip to write in a confusing manner, and I don t try to impress others by l...

    I ve been working up to a William Faulkner book for years His books always appear on lists of best books of all time and books you should read before you die But when I ve felt in the mood for a classic or something literary , I ve always passed him up for other authors, even those with 1000 page monsters I think, deep down, I always sensed Faulkner just wasn t for me.The first problem is my lack of enthusiasm for stream of consciousness narratives If I m being honest, I rarely like it I ve been working up to a William Faulk...

    Where to start with a masterpiece that is both short like the distance between two thoughts and deep as the thoughts themselves This is one of Faulkner d true masterpieces a grotesque road trip with a rotting corpse told in the voices of the extremely dysfunctional and occasionally insane family members It is Ulysses in the Southern United States, or The Grapes of Wrath Faulkner having been inspired by the former and certainly influenced the latter The writing is some of the most powerful Where to start with a masterpiece that is both short like the distance between two thoughts and deep as the thoughts themselves This is one of Faulkner d true masterpieces a grotesque road trip with a rotting corpse told in the voices of the extremely dysfunctional and occasionally insane family members It is Ulysses in the Southern United States, or The Grapes of Wrath Faulkner having been inspired by the former and certainly influenced the latter The writing is some of the most powerful that Faulkner ever produced I would think how words go straight up in a thin line, quick and harmless, and how terribly doing goes along...

    Once you get past the ungainly oddness and wild strangeness which assails you from every direction, then you can see the weirdness which lies beyond The story, and there is a very strong clear linear narrative here, is wonderfully stupid A back country family in Mississippi in the 20s has their dear mama Addie Bundren up and die on them and the lazy ass sumbitch daddy thinks he then has to carry out her settled dying wish which, very...

    Without straying from his inimitable voice, Faulkner delivers aprofessional, calculated effort here than with his novel of the year prior, The Sound and the Fury There arenovel y aspects to As I Lay Dying, and Faulkner emerges as the master of the slow or late reveal, which might be described as reverse foreshadowing As an example, Faulkner will provide a character scene that s fraught with emotion and history and meaning, but he won t explain the context There s dramatic electri Without straying from his inimitable voice, Faulkner delivers aprofessional, calculated effort ...

    I am feeling totally inadequate to the task of reviewing this book It s only the second Faulkner I ve read, and while I enjoyed Absalom, Absalom, it didn t quite utterly astound me the way this one did I was expecting the run on sentences and outright rejection of periods that I found in the first book Instead, I found short little chapters, and voices that spoke in terse sentences that only hinted at what lay beneath.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes I am feeling totally inadeq...

    This thrilling, chilling tale is told through a schizm The conglomeration of different consciousnesses is a bubbling soup mixed in with dark symbols Southern Gothic elements, and it is indeed a delightful experience, an overly delicious dish The macabre is Alive this prose palpitates This is waayyyaccessible than, say, The Sound and the Fury and for those who have strayed away fro...
