    First published in 1929, Faulkner created his "heart's darling", the beautiful and tragic Caddy Compson, whose story Faulkner told through separate monologues by her three brothers: the idiot Benjy, the neurotic suicidal Quentin, and the monstrous Jason.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It would have helped to have a clearer understanding from the start of who each character is and how they relate to each other. I felt like I was trying to figure out who was who evern late in the book.


    Has The Sound and the Fury turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Which character ??? as performed by Grover Gardner ??? was your favorite?

    Benjamin


    Could you see The Sound and the Fury being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see it as a movie, which might make it easier to follow.

    The story of the enigmatic Kurtz and his outpost in deepest Congo is superbly narrated by the gifted Ralph Cosham. Also included is The Lagoon, a story of courage and love in the South Pacific.

  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

    Story
    (1997)

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "Great perspective!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time the most enjoyable?

    This was a unique story from the perspective of the teenager with I believe, autism. Great to listen to his idiosyncracies and the frustrations of the parents trying to cope.


    If you could take any character from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The son.
