One of William Faulkner's finest novels, "As I lay dying" was originally published in 1930, and remains a captivating and stylistically innovative work. The story revolves around a grim yet darkly humorous pilgrimage, as Addie Bundren's family sets out to fulfill her last wish: to be buried in her native Jefferson, Mississippi, far from the miserable backwater surroundings of her married life. Told through multiple voices, it vividly brings to life Faulkner's imaginary South, one of the great invented landscapes in all of literature, and is replete with the poignant, impoverished, violent, and hypnotically fascinating characters that were his trademark.

I just couldn't take this one anymore. Had to stop half way. In fact, I am surprised by how much I couldn't take it anymore. I enjoy Southern Gothic, stream of conscious writing, classics, existentialism - so what's my problem? I wish I had a better answer than: Because I just didn’t like this one...and the introduction of such a large number of characters rubbed me a right wrong way. Yes it did.

The narrator's voice is pretty terrible. It's so upbeat and flippant, which does not match the story at all.
