    "Humorous and poignant"

    Not as difficult as some Faulkner, The Unvanquished deals with the Civil War through the eyes of a youth who matures during and after the war and who recounts his encounters with violence. From the violence eventually a pacificist viewpoint emerges in light of the Almighty's dictum: thou shall not kill. Yet there is humor throughout the book, and you may find yourself laughing out loud. And the skill of the narrator is of the highest quality I have heard on audio. Enjoy.

    "Good Faulkner Intro"
    If you could sum up The Unvanquished in three words, what would they be?

    The collection of civil war stories is not one of Faulkner's monumental contributions to American literature, but still moving and pertinent. Mr. Collins read the story as if it were the first time he had read it and did so very slowly - enunciating every. single. word. completely. Perhaps he was told to do this for an audience that would require such attention, but to the average listener it was too prosaic. He attempted to do voices - kinda, but again it was his first reading of the collection.
