This review is from: The Crossing (Border Trilogy) (paperback) (Paperback)
This is a bleak but wonderfully written piece of work that draws you into the trials and travels of Billy Parnham. It is a worthy companion to 'All the Pretty Horses' as part of McCarthy's Border Trilogy. If it has faults they are firstly too much navel gazing philosophy from some of the characters encountered by Parnham, and secondly too much use of Spanish dialogue, a potential source of frustration for non-Spanish speakers.

More than a little frustrated with the spanish... unfortunately I speak only GCSE level. At the moment I am three quarters of the way through the book, and constant spanish dialogue is really getting on my nerves. I love the story but feel like I'm missing something because of the language barrier..........
