Thought this was a rare audio of my most favorite book. Was so excited to get started listening, but was VERY sad when I realized this was not the entire book. For what it is it is fine, but I want the entire book.
I was nervous to read Faulkner having always heard how difficult his novels were. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease at which I was able to handle Absalom, Absalom! I give full credit for that to the excellent interpretation of Mr. Gardner. I never had trouble following the thoughts or complicated storyline of Faulkner's masterpiece. I now believe he is a MUST READ.
While I am sure there could be more entertaining readers, you just can't beat hearing an author's words read by the author herself. I found it wonderfully fascinating, and Mrs. Welty's deep southern drawl surely helps one imagine this novel.
I am not sure what I loved more, the wonderfully spun tale by Robert Penn Warren or the exceptional interpretation and reading of Michael Emerson.
