This was my first time reading Faulkner. I almost didn't finish this book. I didn't really like the style...or the characters...or find the plot as interesting as the back cover suggested. But I stuck with it and read through.

Once I got a handle on the slang, it wasn't that hard of a read. I didn't connect with any of the characters, not even the sympathetic character, Temple Drake. I didn't understand her, although I appreciated the sliver of insight Faulkner gave us when she described her kidnapping to Horace. In fact, I found that more interesting than most of it. I would have liked to have seen the whole thing through her eyes, but...can't win 'em all.

It wasn't horrid, but I probably won't read it again. Just not my style.
