Faulkner is one of those writers I could never get into, but always felt I 'should' like because of wide acclaim. Felt this way about Hemingway for many years until I was at an age where I could appreciate the weight of the work. I am age 31 and, though I can't grapple with Faulner's novels yet, found the short stories quite amazing and much different than what I expected (having read portions of some of his novels). This book costs two credits, but I think it's worth it because the narration by three different readers is perfect. The stories, "Black Music," and "The Tall Men," and a "Rose for Emily" are alone worth the price of this audio. Without exaggerating, I can tell you I've listened to "The Tall Men," at least six times. One day I hope to be able to read an entire Faulkner novel, but for now the short stories are great and very readable (listenable)

A nice way to get the feeling of Faulkner

I really liked the narration, different people make the stories sound more lively. Also, i have tried to read/listen to Faulkners novels and could quite pick my way through the. The short stories are a nice compromise, maybe now that I am used to his manner, i will be able to enjoy the longer genre.

Thank you very much Audible!
