Well well well, let me tell you about The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner. I started this book and was chagrined that it was another steam of conscientiousness book. I really didn’t like it at first. It jumped all over the place. There was no plot, character development. There was no structure and the logical engineer in me really wasn’t digging it. I was lost and having horrid flashbacks to James Joyce. Shiver…
I am happy to report, I changed my opinion on this novel. As I got into the rhythm of Faulkner’s style, I began to enjoy it. The plot developed, not in the normal fashion, but it did. The characters are given more and more depth as more points of view are expressed. I can understand why this book is in the top 100. I had the same problem with Shakespeare. I had to sit and read it all at once because I had to be in the rhythm to understand. I wonder if that is my math side coming out? Heather do you have the same? This may be a difference in right brain, left brain thinking.
Digging further into my left brain, we have ventured into the world of Facebook and Twitter with our blog. Yeah technology! I love learning new things and figuring out how to get our name out there is a good one to learn. First, follow us on Twitter @emmebooks or Facebook Emme Books! See how I am loving the technology. Keeping my brain active – both halves!!!
Well back to Faulkner… dying to know how it ends. I have a feeling it won’t be tidy. Remember to Read, Anything, just READ!!
