    "This book was very interesting to read because I saw the movie version many years ago but didn't remember it well. It was interesting to learn about military battles and the Civil War from this book."

    "I was stuck in a waiting room for a few hours, and saw this on the shelf. It started out interesting, but quickly turned fairly depressing. If you're going to immigrate to America, why would you want to live in the middle of nowhere Iowa? I couldn't figure out if this is a true story, inspired by, or pure fiction; but either way, I still can't get my head around wanting to live in the heartland among a bunch of people who get weird around strangers. I might pick it up from the library to finish, but I'm not sure."

    "William Faulkner the American Master, the pinnacle of Southern Gothic Literature; How can you go wrong with the recommendation of his great work, Absalom, Absalom! I'm personally partial to As I Lay Dying, but the tale of the rise and fall of Thomas Sutpen is captivating. "
