The Sound and the Fury, by William Faulkner


I attempted to read this, only getting through a small section of the second "chapter".  I was left wondering, "Was William Faulkner on drugs when he wrote this??"

I read "The Catcher in the Rye" cover to cover simply to be able to say I've read it.  It's a classic, right? It was the biggest waste of my time.  This book was right up there with it, so I decided not to finish this one.  I was better able to understand it here, but still didn't have the desire to read the whole thing.  It was boring, confusing (due to the author's "technique known as stream of consciousness"), and didn't have much of a plot.  Again, how did this become a classic?? I should seriously write a book and send it to either of these publishers - apparently they're desperate for writers.  ;)

Incompetent? Meaning, not having the necessary skills to do something successfully? Say, commenting on someone's blog without spell-checking first?? Ha. Next time you want to tell me how inadequate my knowledge is, try brushing up on your own, first.

As for your "bashing", I don't have a problem with it; we're all entitled to our opinions - and have the right to express such.

As for my being female - I don't see what that has to do with anything... unless you're implying that only males, who, in my opinion, often have inferior thinking to females, are the ones who might be able to understand such garbage.

I'll insult who I want. It's my blog.

Have a nice day! ;)
