The Sound and The Fury

So I'm doing very well with my reading list this year! 

I should have made a list a long time ago! There is something very satisfying about checking things off your list, isn't there?

So far, I've read (and enjoyed) Atonement in January and Wide Sargasso Sea in February.

March's book is The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner.

Here's a quick synopsis:
'Ever since the first furor was created on its publication in 1929, "The Sound and the Fury" has been considered one of the key novels of this century. Depicting the gradual disintegration of the Compson family through four fractured narratives, "The Sound and the Fury" explores intense, passionate family relationships where there is no love, only self-centeredness. At its heart this is a novel about lovelessness - 'only an idiot has no grief; only a fool would forget it. What else is there in this world sharp enough to stick to your guts?'
Sounds like fun, huh?

Well, the purpose of this little endeavor wasn't necessarily to have fun.

The purpose was to become a more well-read person, so I'm going to soldier through it.
