This review is from: Outer Dark (Paperback)
Where do I start?....
This is Cormacs second novel and starts as dark as it continues. A brother and sister father a child. The brother tells her the child has died, but actually leaves it to perish in the forest. The lie is found out and the sister goes in search of the childs whereabouts. In turn the brother follows to find the sister....
Along each siblings journey they encounter various characters and ways of life.
As with all of mcarthys works don't expect anyone to have a good time or be particularly joyous. His usual desolate descriptive prose cuts right through to the bone. A little hard to follow at times, but it is always worth the effort.
Cormac Mcarthy is an amazing writer and one that I can see being studied for generations to come
