I wish I could recommend this to general readers but I find it almost unreadable. The story is told rather than developed and in overly verbose terms. Dialog, character introduction, development, goal-seeking, etc. are obfuscated in the weighty vocabulary display of Faulkner. The literati love this sort of thing, but ordinary readers may find it ponderous and uninteresting. By comparison, "As I Lay Dying" and "The Sound and the Fury" are examples of clarity and interesting stories. My sincere apologies to the memory of a great American writer.
