ITEM#: 10160186In his blistering new novel, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of his famed Border Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones.
One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law–in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell–can contain.
As Moss tries to evade his pursuers–in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives–McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
No Country for Old Men is a triumph.

I've only read a few Cormac McCarthy books. Overall his work is excellent, however if you've never read any of his books before be warned; his style of writing can difficult to read. He does not use anything but basic punctuation marks, he typically does not indicate which character is speaking, it is not always clear which character the narrator is referring to, etc. The ideas he addresses in his books are interesting and they are a good read.No Country for Old Men was and excellent book. I read a few reviews of it before hand that claimed it was one of the more accessible Cormac McCarthy books. I would have to agree, but I am by no means a McCarthy expert. I have not seen the Cohen brothers movie so I cannot compare, but I recommend this book. I think it is one that could interest a wide variety of readers.Read More
