I can't say enough positive things about Will Patton's narration: he creates a full cast of distinct characters, right down to the extremely minor "walk-ons", without one iota of stereotypical Southern Fried Phoniness. I will definitely seek out other titles he has narrated.
This narrational clarity is a real plus, as Faulkner's literary style can be a challenge involving as it does a myriad of forms: stream of consciousness, spiral narratives, direct down-home storytelling, allegory, as well as highly charged and poetic language. That said, this is a deeply humane novel full of the best and worst of human behavior, vivid descriptions of character and setting, as well as moments of deep, sly humor.
The production values are quite good. I've really enjoyed the audible productions I've listened to.
