No country for old men
Cormac McCarthy
Adult Fiction MCCARTH

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Barrett delivers a standout performance in an artful abridgement that captures the essence of McCarthy's classic. Set along the border between the U.S. and Mexico, the story follows the tragic and bloody adventures of Llewelyn Moss, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, and the sociopathic killer Anton Chigurh. When Moss makes off with millions of dollars of drug money, his life changes forever as both Bell and Chigurh pursue him, the latter leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Barrett's portrayal of Moss, Bell, and Chigurh are pitch perfect as are his renditions of the secondary characters and of the sheriff's first-person reminiscences interspersed throughout the novel. This audio book is a rare gem and a mandatory listening for McCarthy fans. A Knopf hardcover. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Darkness stalks Cormac McCarthy's No Country of Old Men as four characters engage in a deadly journey that is triggered when Llewelyn Moss stumbles upon a truck with over $2 million in cash and decides to take the money. McCarthy's meditation on the nature of violence, good and evil, and the rolling dice of chance and choice is a bloody and broodingly atmospheric story that adapts well to the screen. The Coen Brothers' film version, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, somberly traces the novel's blood-soaked journey. (c) Copyright 2010.
