Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


Peter the Public Defender has been nudging me to read it for years, and I finally did.

As I've admitted many times, I am not smart about literature, so take this for what it's worth, but...I think that's a really good book. I find McCarthy's style really gripping, and the relentless brutality of this book is almost mesmerizing.

I wish I knew enough about literature to say something intelligent about it, but alas...

Have you read The Road? I couldn't put it down. But I have no interest in seeing the movie adaptation. If it's true to the book, it will be too awful.
