    A ****ing masterpiece. This novel really delves deep into the psyche of the main character, a troubled, isolated man with a warped and contradictory perception of the world. Even though it's a short book it still took me a while to finish, it's kind of a dense book and I had to take some extra time to digest everything.

    Re-reading this (or parts of it) for school. It's a pretty good, but that's because I am a nerd for sociolinguistics.

    My first taste of Faulkner. Took me a while to get used to his prose, but once I did I couldn't put it down. I like how Faulkner lets you get to know the characters by showing how they each react differently to the same situation. The way the characters evolved throughout the novel was also very fascinating. Not a book for everyone, Faulkner's one of those authors that you either love or hate.

    This is pretty good.

    My favorite Faulkner so far is "Light in August."

    WOW - this book was ****ing AMAZING. McCarthy is a god when it comes to writing stories. I found it hard to put down until the very end.

    Kind of curious how the movie adaptation will be.

    Wasn't exactly in the mood for a satirical novel, but it was the only book I had around that I hadn't read so I decided to give it a go. Thoroughly enjoyed it, one of the best written novels I've read.

    Got a new pile of books to read now.

    1st Gaiman book I've read. Half way though. Cant put it down. Might inspire me to buy Coraline and Stardust ("young readers" novels?). I liked both movies, the novels have to be better....right? anybody have opinions?

    Wow...that's a great book. You want to read another adult Gaiman book

    You probably should have read this one first, but it will still be good.
