    Faulkner Classic

    This is the first Faulkner novel that I have read. This is a great novel for people that have never read a faulkner. I felt that I really got into the character of Popeye. You really begin understand the way of life in the south early 1900's.

    i thought it was pretty interesting.it was the first faulkner no

    i thought it was pretty interesting.it was the first faulkner novel i'd ever read, and i have to say, it's not as enigmatic as i thought it would be, which is not to say that there weren't times when i was confused, or even outright frustrated, but it was nothing that re-reading a few passages couldn't fix. i did find it to be brutal and even sad in a perverse way, but the thing that i liked the most was faulkner's use of language; it can be downright beautiful, flowing, poetic in a way that modern writers just don't do anymore. i did like the book quite a bit and am looking forward to reading another faulkner novel, but if you've never read faulkner, it wouldn't hurt to read up a bit on the book before hand, maybe get some background. if you're interested.

    A serbian review

    Although English is not my native language, I discovered a hole new world in William Faulkner. Sanctuary is one of his best works. Hot atmosphere of violence, and degenerative and perverse behaviour, altogether with his unic negation of every time process is fantastic.

    Traditional south with a sordid twist

    Also my first submmersion into Faulkner. An intricately entagled tale of innocence lost and darkness found through mistakes of simplicity and brutal reality. Faulkner transplants you in the deep south so much that you can smell the humidity...a must read!

    An Unappreciated Classic

    By the time Popeye, the villain and protagonist, asks the hangman to fix his collar--the response: 'I'll fix it.'--you know you have witnessed a great American literary achievement on par with Flaubert. And the humor is truly unforgettable. Read it--read it--read it!
