While I enjoyed this collection, I started reading Faulkner back in high school. Even then it was not an easy ride. It takes some time to get into his rhythms and style, and even then you have to read large chunks at a time to get the feel of the words. For firstimers, "As I lay Dying" is probably the easiest and most accessible.

I'd definitely not start with "Light in August," which is, while a great novel, extrememly hard to follow. I also find this work to be his most depressing. If you're not starting with this collection, you might want to try his short stories such as "A Rose for Emily" or "Two Soldiers." Also, his "Barn Burning" is easy to follow.
