William Faulkner’s Intruder in the Dust was the book chosen for our reading group’s February novel. We all agreed it was a difficult style to read. He used little punctuation. The pronoun ‘he’ in his long sentences could mean Chick or Lucas or his uncle or any male in the scene. Within the long, long paragraphs, we often couldn’t figure out which ‘he’ talked or took action.
However, we all liked the richness of the setting, and three out of five us appreciated the novel inspite of the writing style.
