McCarthy paints a wonderful picture of life in the West- a life you would have to experience to describe. This is a book that you read when you have lots of time to absorb the words and let the story wash over you. More

Better than All the Pretty Horses

by Gringotraveler on May 5, 2011

I love this guy's stories, so simple yet so full of insight from the variety of characters he builds. Can't wait to read the third book. More

An author's task is to tell a story and have the reader live it as if there. This book and all the westerns require an adult male to read all the novel at one sitting ... More
