Overall, an interesting book. It's good to know going in that McCarthy does not use quotations in this book. If you go in without knowing that, you might feel some resentment toward him. For the most part, the reader knows what's going on despite the lack of proper grammar. There were a few times I ...

This book takes place in Texas in the 1980s. I don't know how many people saw the movie, but the book adds a lot more depth to the characters that I really enjoyed. That said, I thought that it got a bit too long though. Once we get past a certain point in the book it just felt like things were bein...

‘What’s the most you ever saw lost on a coin toss?’ No Country for Old Men joins the illustrious company of books that I've reread and more than deserves its place there, this is simply one of the most intense pieces of fiction I’ve read and narrated by Tom Stechschulte who I now rate as highly as...

An interesting McCarthy work. It is essentially a modern day Western, especially of the Spaghetti type. Told in McCarthy's sparse style. Here he is at his sparsest.It pretty clearly is a meditation on good and evil. This is now my third McCarthy and the previous two were also meditations on goo...

Gotta come clean. I really have a hard time reading Cormac McCarthy. I know him not using quotation marks is a choice of style, but it honestly makes his stuff a bit hard for me to read. I struggle with who is doing the talking at times, or if there's even dialogue being spoken. However, I ended u...
