Please explain.

So I'm still in Phoenix and it's AWESOME of course. I'm with some of my favourite people. But I need to pose a question to Shey or anyone else who has read The Sound and the Fury. I tried to start reading it yesterday and I made it to page 15 and finally said WHAT. THE. FUCK. I have no clue what's going on. I don't know if it's just me, but I need somebody who has read and understand it to kinda walk me through it a bit. That somebody is probably Shey but if anyone else has read it and understands, let me know.

It's so, so terrible! Do not read it! I hate it! I hate it like poison!

I had an English teacher for two years in high school who was obsessed with Faulkner. I don't even know how many of his books I had to try reading, and they're all abominations.

i don't like this jake guy.

anyhu, i should have forwarned you its one of those books. its also told from different points of view, one of which is told by a 30 year old man with the mental and social capabilities of someone tristans age.

once you get past the freaking ridiculous story telling, its actually an amazing story.
