5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love Cliff Notes 7 Mar 2013
By Douglas Mallary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of my daughters had to read "As I Lay Dying" for school. Of course, I insisted that she read the book -- which she did -- but Cliffs Notes helped her write a better book report by pointing out and explaining some of the subtleties that she missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book. excellent mock quest 20 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
i love this book and always will. Faulkner does a great job of letting each character's voice be heard seperately. The ending is the most surprising part. Admitidly it IS a little hard to get into at first, but if you stick to it, you will be greatly rewarded with a great story and a good book to recommend to friends.
5.0 out of 5 stars Precursor to Jerry? 26 Sep 2009
By S. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
This was my first stab at Faulkner and I will admit in the beginning I thought I had made a terrible selection. The reading is a bit difficult, but that is one of the reasons I chose a Faulkner novel for a research paper. At first, I would find myself reading chapters 2 sometimes 3 times to grasp what was going on. However, after roughly the first 6 chapters I was able to embrace the style and roll with it. After I finished the novel, my honest to God first impression was, "This sounds like a Jerry Springer episode." Faulkner of course sitting in for Jerry as the grand orchestator with "The Bundrens" as his disfunctional guest family. Thus the title for my review precursor for Jerry. This novel was published in 1930 and even then we loved to read about disfunctional families.(someone elses of course) Overall excellent novel, Faulkner did not disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars i enjoyed this book 2 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
i love the way willian faulkner wrote this book,u get each characters own thoughts, and personal expierences of the adventure this family went through. In the begining of the book, i guess it was because theyre were so many diferent nerators, it was kind of confusing, and hard to get into. But as i progressed through the book i found myself not being able to put the book down in curiosity of what would lie before me in the folowing chapters. i dont read much but i enjoyed this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Supplement to the Movie 30 Dec 2013
By W. Thornton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am 71 years old, and I have four college degrees, albeit in engineering and business, and I was totally lost when I watched the movie. I decided to take on the challange by buying the famous college copout approach to try to figure out the plot and characters. I must admit, they were a great help but I now realize that I must read the book since the movie did not do justice to WF. I am glad I am still mentally alert!
