William Fauklner's forth novel and considered by many to be his masterpeice, The Sound and the fury is an absolute great read. A Challenging yet rewarding book, the novel contains 4 chapters, each narrarated by 4 different speakers, the three Compson brothers and the fourth is told in third-person. The First chapter is told by the mentally retarded benjy. The Second is told by the sad elder-child Quentin, and the third told by the mean and selfish Jason. many consider benjy's chapter to be the most difficult, however, I found the chapter a lot easier than Quentin to be much more difficult. The last 2 chapters were very simple. One of the best books I have ever read I would recommend reading SparkNotes for a litle aid if you are new to these harder and more rewarding works of fiction.

Really?

U CANNOT JUSTIFY THIS PRICE FOR THIS BOOK. Are u trying to alienate your loyal customers? Jacking up the prices and blaming someone else is becoming a very concerning trend. We want books and quality apps at FAIR prices. I love my NC and buy alot of books and apps, but...
U CANNOT JUSTIFY THIS PRICE FOR THIS BOOK. Are u trying to alienate your loyal customers? Jacking up the prices and blaming someone else is becoming a very concerning trend. We want books and quality apps at FAIR prices. I love my NC and buy alot of books and apps, but it is a turnoff to see blatant overpricing. Are u figuring that we are trapped and have no choice? We depend on u to do the right thing. I will Read Forever if u do.

    You must be kidding!!!

    This is pseudo intellectual babble. I suppose it is similiar to throwing paint on a canvas and calling it art.

    Not for difficulty

    I am not giving this book a 1 star rating because it was a challenge to read. It was difficult, however, if one pursisted they could quite easily understand the plot. In fact, I found the challenge wonderful. However, the themes and plots of this book were utterly dispicible. Things such as brothers and sisters being romanitcally attracted and other such descusting suggestions. Faulkner was a very talented but morallly lost man!

    This is not a book to read for fun.

    This book brings up a lot of interesting points, but it is very difficult to read and I hope I never have to open it again. Parts of it were okay, but I just can't say I enjoyed reading it.

    Absolutely Ridiculous

    This wasn't a work of literature, it was a complete disaster. Not only was the writing style eccentric, at best, but the quality was just about the worse I've seen since reading work from junior high school students! I don't see how any critic can claim that writing like this: *'He just sat there.' he said.* is lyrical or moving. It makes me itch to grab a red pen and circle all the mistakes! And I'm not even a teacher! If you're here to read something just for the concepts involved in the story, this is a book for you. But if all of the major writing aspects are what pull you to a novel (i.e. grammar, spelling, style, diction, tone, readability and believability) then I would look elsewhere.
