No Country For Old Men

Did you see the movie? Read the book.

Did you read the book? See the movie.

My first book by McCarthy. Spare, compact, real, powerful, violent.

I saw the movie first so had a visual in my head while reading this book. That was ok. You find yourself rushing a bit while reading but it's because the writing keeps you moving along. You are experiencing the story in real time. I will return to McCarthy for more.
