All The Pretty Horses - Must read

by Paul on Mar 21, 2013

This was a wonderful read. The times, the country and the attitudes of the times were brought to life like no other book I've read. I was relaxed during some of it, on the edge of my chair some of it, and wistful throughout.

looks good

I am currently reading The Crossing, another of the books in the trilogy and this suffers from the same fault. So far I have found the books to be overated.

All the Pretty Horses Galloped Away

by tjmccanna on Aug 27, 2009

I read this book due to the recommendations of my favorite book reviewer, my wife. I was truly amazed that I found it pedestrian. The casual lack of use of no quotation marks and throwing in Spanish with no translations made it frustrating and in places totally incoherent. His character development was still very good in spite of the of the language problem. If you speak and read Spanish it may be a better read, but if you don't, I wouldn't bother with this book.
