    Whew This is a devastating book Probably one of the most depressing stories I ve read Incest, castration, suicide, racism, misogyny this one has it all Even at the beginning, when it is possible to make out only pieces of the events, a nauseating sense of dread permeates Benji s narrative per Faulkner s pungent writing style And this feeling never really dissipates Jumping into The Sound and the Fury with no prior introduction is like driving through an impenetrable fog or into a blinding Whew This is a devastating book Probably one of the most depressing stories I ve read Incest, castration, suicide, racism, misogyny this one has it all Even at the beginning, when it is possible to make out only pieces of the events, a nauseating sense of dread permeates Benji s narrative per Faulkner s pungent writing style And this feeling never really dis...

    The first time I attempted this book, I made my way through a mere three pages before deciding it would be a waste To date, it is the only book that I had the good sense to leave until later, as my usual response is to barrel through the pages come hell or high water Perhaps it was a good thing that I had just finished slogging my way through a monstrous tome that left my brain incapable of facing down the beginning of Benjy s prose I don t remember the title of whatever book left me in that The first time I attempted this book, I made my way through a mere three pages before deciding it would be a waste To date, it is the only book that I had the good sense to leave until later, as my usual response is to barrel through the pages come hell or high water Perhaps it was ...

    This Monster of a Book is equally profound puzzling Somewhere between naked consciousness and brutal incomprehension, the novel is nothing if not cerebral The events occurring one Easter weekend at the end of the roaring 20 s are sliced off at emotional markjers and then mixed in with events from the sad, sad past Beginning the labyrinth with Benjy s POV is like the set of rules proposed by the mad Faulkner Hethan asks, he DEMANDS one put everything away to partake in the Souther This Monster of a Book is equally profound puzzling Somewhere between naked consciousness and brutal incomprehension, the novel is nothing if not cerebral The events occurring one Easter weekend at the end of the roaring 20 s are sliced off at emotional markjers and then mixed in with events from the sad, sa...
