I was handed a book at few weeks ago by a friend. He said, “This is the best book I ever read. Please read it, but when you do, sit back and enjoy the essence.” He seemed rather serious when he said that so I am going to give this one my all.
The name of the book is “No Country For Old Men” and it was written by Cormac McCarthy. It’s strange because over the past year, I have heard so much about this author. First, I heard about the movie, “The Road.” Then, I bought the book at the Book Barn. I haven’t had a chance to read The Road yet. This new book is going to have to take precedence because it’s a loaner. I hope it’s as good as my friend says it is.
“If you like your conflicts fully resolved, you may want to look elsewhere; if you’re bothered by unconventional punctuation, you may be irritated by this book; if you despise jump cuts and point of view shifts, you may find yourself rereading sections of this book to catch your bearings. Otherwise, however, you may find this one of the most original books you’ve read in years.” – Amazon.com
