The Sound and the Fury

Here an old oystershucker could find Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe, The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner, For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway.
Pat Conroy  --  The Water is Wide
  celebrated novel considered to be Faulkner’s most important; commonly required in high school and college, but challenging — especially the first section which is "a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury"

Strongly Associated with:   William Faulkner
Accelerated Reader Level/Points:  10.1 / 23*

* Have seen this ranking and another for 4th grade, but however simple the sentences and vocabulary, this is Faulkner and this editor thinks he is better read by a 10th grade reader.
