I picked this up on Audible because I know it's considered an American classic and I'd never read it. This audiobook was read by the author so I thought it would be interesting. I didn't know what to expect from the book, as I didn't know much about it. I was surprised at how graphic parts of it are, but at the same time appreciated the stories of living that are contained within it. Difficult to listen to at some times, but extremely emotional at others. This won't rank as one of my favorite books, but I'm glad to have "read" it as I know my understanding of American literature is greater for it.
