#9 The Sound and The Fury

Ok, I just saw that The Sound and The Fury was an Oprah Book Club selection.  Jeeze.  It’s a 321 page book and I spent the first 140 pages trying to figure out what was going on.  I’m still not completely sure what happened in those pages, but I kind of figured it out loosely in the last 180 pages.  Ok, yeah sure it’s a classic book.  It’s an interesting idea for sure to write what’s happening and then interject what going on in the person’s mind (usually without warning) because that’s the way we live our lives.  But it really makes it HARD TO READ.  I’m not sure I’ll be picking up another Faulkner book in the next 11 months, but maybe after that.  It’s probably going to take me at least 11 months to digest what I read in the last 48 hours.  Now, I hope onto something a little bit easier to read.  Like something with real sentences.
