    Absalom, Absalom! tells the story of Thomas Sutpen, the enigmatic stranger who came to Jefferson township in the early 1830s. With a French architect and a band of wild Haitians, he wrung a fabulous plantation out of the muddy bottoms of the north Mississippi wilderness.

    If you could sum up Absalom, Absalom! in three words, what would they be?

    It is hard to say which of Faulkner's works is my favorite, but Absalom, Absalom! certainly ranks in the top three. Grover Gardner is wonderful as the narrator, too. Faulkner, of course, is not an easy read, but with time one can begin to understand the "flow" of Faulkner's writing. I think this Audible presentation is an excellent way to capture Faulkner's wonderful poetic voice. Highly recommended!

    Story

    At the heart of this 1930 novel is the Bundren family's bizarre journey to Jefferson to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Faulkner lets each family member, including Addie, and others along the way tell their private responses to Addie's life.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    First, I'm a diehard Faulkner fan. However, the performance here truly does him a disservice. To get the full flavor of Faulkner's prose, listen to Grover Gardner's performance of Absolam, Absolam! Or Joe Barrett's performance of The Hamlet.
