Before I read this, someone told me that it was just too graphic sometimes, and I have to say this was pretty tame. Provided you don’t mind reading "shot through the head" many times, you’ll be fine. This was an ok novel. I only had the large print of the novel from the library, and I don’t know if that affected my reading of it. However, McCarthy, at least in this book, did not use quotes. Everytime someone says something, it’s either a quick line, or just thrown into the paragraph. Sometimes hard to go with. Ending was Ok. 6/10.

I loved this book and think that McCarthy does a great job of alerting us to the evils that are growing in our own society. I don’t think it is overtly graphic and I believe that the non-use of quotation marks is a trademark of this author. This is another cautionary tale from a Master American Writer...I would urge you to read it and look deeper. SIDEBAR:When will this author take on the problems we’ve had since 9/11? I feel that he would do our quagmire justice!

The book was surprisingly tame compared to the movie. This was also a quick read, compared to the drawn out movie. McCarthy’s commentary on our society through the eyes of the sherrif is quiet insightful. The duality of man is painted masterfully through both Bell and Chigurh. Chigurh is evil with a purpose and integrity, while Bell is honesty and morality with a dark secret.
