Never read it but it’s on the high school reading lists. I would imagine it’s good to many.
One of my favorite readings from college
James Franco made it into a movie! Loved it!
Madness! But in a magnificent way… try Absalom, Absalom for more insanity 😀
Tried and gave up ?.
Too difficult for me the original version, and the italian traslation I came across sounded cumbersome to me.
I’m about 3 chapters in and i’m losing interest. But I will keep going just so I can watch the James Franco movie after ?
I think I’ll go for the movie directly ?
While reading any Faulkner book I feel retarded. I understand half of the facts and then I need to re read it.
I am a forever fan..
Loved it. It’s a little twisted. Beverly Hillbillies set in a hard time. In the line of The Winter Of Our Discontent.
A little dark. But amusingly good.
But, I love depression era type books.
One of the books I hate most of everything I’ve read. NOT a fan!
We read it in my college lit class. Highly recommend.
I love it. It’s astounding. Literally. That’s kind of the point…
Read it in school and loved it!
Great book, but not Faulkner’s best in my opinion. If you want to start with something a little more “reader friendly” for Faulkner, I would suggest _Intruders in the Dust_. _As I Lay Dying_ is a novel that I think should be read…once…kinda like Joyce’s _Ulysses_. Just my humble opinion.
It kind of reads like a Faulkner-y Stephen King/Cormac McCarthy novel! Very depressing, dark, a little quiet, a little horrifyingly gross. It’s my favorite of his novels.
