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.

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
