did not like it
Read in April, 2008

If you read for entertainment, this is not the book for you. I listened to the entire book as it dragged on to the bitter, dull, end, thinking that it *had* to get better. Well, it didn't get any better. Perhaps it is a portrayal of the attitudes of the time, and worth reading for some realization of how much better off we are today. This one was my first and, most likely, only experience with Faulkner.
