Almost chose to read that over C&P. I've never read Faulkner. I read As I Lay Dying. Faulkner can be rather difficult to understand at times. He has an obsession with writing from the perspective of a mental deficient while using a stream of consciousness prose style. It's very hard keeping track of characters and continuity when he writes this way, but it's amazing that he's able to put it all together. I'm only 20 pages in, but I'll update when I'm done. PS, what's with all the fiction titles? I thought you were purely a History fanatic.
