At the heart of this 1930 novel is the Bundren family's bizarre journey to Jefferson to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Faulkner lets each family member--including Addie--and others along the way tell their private responses to Addie's life. As I Lay Dying is the harrowing, darkly comic tale of the Bundren family's trek across Mississippi to bury Addie, their wife and mother, as told by each of the family members--including Addie herself.

I just couldn't take this one anymore. Had to stop half way. In fact, I am surprised by how much I couldn't take it anymore. I enjoy Southern Gothic, stream of conscious writing, classics, existentialism - so what's my problem? I wish I had a better answer than: Because I just didn’t like this one...and the introduction of such a large number of characters rubbed me a right wrong way. Yes it did.

The narrator's voice is pretty terrible. It's so upbeat and flippant, which does not match the story at all.
