I have always very much enjoyed the Classics, but this book was the most confusing I have ever listened to. I didn't have any idea who the characters were and how they related to the "main" character. Son? Neighbor? What? I was over 4 hours into the book before it became clear who was who and how they related. Only book I'm sorry I ever bought!!!
No fault of Faulkner, the Audible bookmarks detract from the listening experience. Random bookmarks appear and disappear, and there's no way of titling the bookmarks. I like the idea of Audible books, but it's a hassle to copy the files onto CD and the books are a little pricey, too. Fix the bookmarking problems and I would consider buying more in the future. Otherwise, I'll buy audiobooks on CDs in the future.
This was was the complete text of my favorite chapter in the book. It was my favorite only because the chapter consisted of 5 words (yay, one less chapter to suffer through). This book was assigned in a college literature course, so I was forced to read it. I downloaded the book hoping to ease the pain by listening to it during my daily commute. I am thankful that I survived. It was read so slowly that I often stopped listening to the audiobook at home so I could speed through the pages in the text. I really hope the other books in my literature course are less painful than As I Lay Dying.
this was without a doubt the worst book I have listened to. Oprah picked a dud this time. Wish I hadn't wasted my time on this one. I didn't have feelings for any the characters and couldn't have cared less about what they thought or felt.
THIS WAS JUST AWFUL. I COULD NOT FOLLOW THE POINT OR IF THERE WAS EVEN A STORY. NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITES. OPRAH WAS OFF THE MARK WITH THIS ONE.
