    "One of the most interesting books out there. It will keep you entertained for hours and it will tell the story of Addie Bundren and her last wish."

    "This is a little different that I was expecting. It's a sorrowful tale of a man who's freshly lost his wife. In a time where toxic masculinity is finally starting to be called out and challenged, it's encouraging to read books that tell men that's fine for them to have feelings too."

    "First Faulkner book I've ever read. I don't think I'm going to be finishing this read. I found it very boring, good read to put you to sleep though."

    "William Faulkner brings a good novel primarily written from a past perspective. I wasn't too into it at first, but the story brought on some good points during the mid chapter section. I liked how the characters were introduced in the life of Addie Bundren in a way how Forrest Gump was. Not too bad of a read to be honest. "

    "Faulker is one of a kind and a "best" for sure. Wonderful read. I did have to adjust my thinking and engage my brain for this book - I had to read the first chapter twice before I was able to adapt to the rythm of the narrative. Once I got it, though, I enjoyed every word. By writing in his "stream of consciousness" style, Faulkner allows the reader to experience the story as if the words on the page are, thoughts originating in the reader's own mind. Be aware, though, that the author does not spoon feed the story to you. You do have to have motive to concentrate and draw conclusions on your own. "

    "I mostly liked how this story was written because it jumped around to different characters and you could learn things from each of their point of views. I think more depth could have been given the characters and more information of the events leading up to the situation of the main character though."

    "This is a good story. As many others have mentioned, there are a lot of characters to follow and it gets confusing, but it is still worthwhile. The story is interesting and allows for the characters to develop and the reader to get involved and invested in the future of them. I would recommend it for anyone, especially someone who hasn't read Faulkner before."

    "this is part thriller, part mystery, all interesting. A great story of the bible belt and life in the 20's."

    "As I Lay Dying is a good Faulkner novel. The characters are interesting and well-developed. I liked how the story is told from many different viewpoints. It is a worthwhile read that will stick with you for a long time after."

    "Many people do not like Faulkner. I find him to be brilliant. This is arguably his finest work ans considered by most to be as such."

    "Not an uplifting, warm story by any means but this book is still worth the read. If anything this book should be read to experience the writers almost poetic way of writing. "
  • Alice Morgan

    "This book uses of multiple points of view and the inner psychological voices of the characters. It is at times confusing and convoluted not a book I would recommend "

    "Great book, so William Faulkner really lives up to his name in this novel. Cannot stop reading it. Really good book."

    "I'm weird. I wanted to find the best books but only the ones that started with the letter A. I was told to read As I lay Dying. I tried to get through it but it was too boring. "
  • Rodrigo Montiel

    "Faulkner is a trip, and this book is not an exception. His characters are odd, his words can be hard to follow, but there is a lot waiting beneath the exterior. In a world of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, I'm not sure how much room there is for a work like this, but give it a try. You might be surprised."

    "Set in the Mississippi countryside, As I Lay Dying tells the tale of a family setting out to bury their wife and mother. William Faulkner is one of the best storytellers of the modern era for stories just like this. The characters - deep and complex, each with their own personality and flaws - make up the heart of this story. As I Lay Dying is a beautiful classic!"
