Difficult to read, but ultimately well worth the effort
on 24 June 2013
Faulkner is rightly considered in the top echelon of American writers, but this is not an easy read. Characters and situations are beautifully described, yet it is often necessary to reread passages so as not to miss the nuances of language and construction. There is a temptation to abandon it. Please don't. The quirks and ultimate solution of the plot make this a clever and satisfying experience.
