  • A timeless American classic

    This is a classic among American literature - as with most of William Faulkner's novels, it can be hard work at times, but it is tragic, darkly funny and full of compelling characters. It begins with the death and burial of Addie Bundren, the matriarch of the family. Members of the family narrate the story of carting the coffin to Jefferson, Mississippi, to bury her among her relatives. And as the intense desires, fears and rivalries of the family are revealed in the vernacular of the Deep South, Faulkner presents a portrait of extraordinary power. The narrative, told from each character's perspective, yet often about the same event, left the reader to interpret the underlying motive or conflict of feelings within the Bundren family. It is intriguing but required careful reading of the sense prose.

  • Very Odd

    This book was weird, and I didn't really understand a lot of it, but the audiobook made it a lot easier to understand. I don't know why it's considered to be a classic.

  • As I Lay Dying

    Great read. I bit tough as first due to its prose but you'll catch on. Faulkner omits a lot of information that keeps some things open for the reader to think on. He is able to put you back into the 1930s and give you a glimpse of a family's life then from the many characters perspectives and each one tells us the story they're enduring at the loss of their Mother Addie. 4 days tops to complete this book if you read 75 pp/ day.

    Thanks for your feedback!
