Faulkner's book of the Bundren family en route to bury Addie Bundren, their mother and wife, in her family cemetery at quite a distance from their home. At times humourous, this book is wonderful for character study; each chapter is a stream-of-consciousness of each character's thoughts, giving a total of fifteen different narrators. (July 2003)

I had to read this book in my AP English class. I got a lot out of it and the class discussions, but I'm sure if I had read it on my own I would've quit part way through. Definitely some interesting characters and a lot of insight into the deep south culture. I don't think it was a waste of time, but I won't read it again and don't recommend it UNLESS you like this type of stream of consciousness book, then I'm sure you'll love it.

A must read before you lay dying:) very complex themes: loneliness & isolation, meaning of life, religion, poverty, etc.

I found this story to be full of engaging and powerful moments, but I didn't get much out of its ending. Perhaps that is my fault and not Faulkner's...
