As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner: Admissions Reading Challenge 3 – Book 6

November 17, 2018

What can I say but that I hated this book…completely, but mostly dispassionately; it irritated me with its style of constant switching from voice to voice in a repetitive stream of idiotic consciousness. I lost patience with a few of the characters, gritting my teeth each time they took up the narrative – I also found myself arguing out loud with their illogical reasoning, but then giving it up as a bad job after realizing I didn’t really care what happened to them. I couldn’t relate to the characters or their situation or their choices or actions. Reading this book was an exercise in futility.
