Sweet, Sweet Progress

As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner, is a dark comedy about the Bundren family's odyssey to bury Addie, the dead matriarch. Switching narrators with each chapter change, Faulkner uncovers the ulterior motives of each family member as they cross the countryside to bury their wife and mother. Published in 1930 by Faulkner, my copy was "corrected" in 1985 and printed in 1991 by Vintage International Books. 

Pages Read: 50 (19.15%)
Opinion Thus Far: I am loving this book! It is just as good as I remember it, I love the character development, Faulkner's writing style, the plot line and the switching between narrators. It is absolutely fabulous.
