it was amazing
bookshelves: top-100-english-mod-library, top-100-time-mag
Read in January, 2010

definitely a better read than his other famous novels, the sound and the fury and as i lay dying. written more as a story than a narrative with a plot that has to be pieced together as you read, it's much easier to enjoy his writing than trying to figure out who's talking about what (as in the above mentioned novels). i love the pieced together words he makes up, and his writing is fantastic. read this instead of the other two!!
