really liked it
Read in November, 2010

This was not one of Faulkner's best yet I would still recommend reading it, if for no other reason then to get a different perspective of southern living during and after the civil war without all the vainglorious hero worship that seams to permeate the genera. In the story you have likable characters in a unlikable situations, evolving as they age, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Racial slurs are used frequently, albeit ironically, but still if that sort of thing offends you then don't read this book.
