3.0 out of 5 stars The ups and downs of a true artist.., 25 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Saved (Audio CD)
Patchy at best...probably most memorable for the gospel style backing singing...

Not his finest hour..and Im sure he knew that..

This review is from: Shot Of Love (Audio CD)
Im no fan of his religious vagaries but you cant fault the man for passion and dedication, to whichever subject he's engrossed by when he's making music.

The title track is full on swaggering rock...never mind the message, feel the beat..superb. A high standard of playing throughout..

5 stars, no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan revisited.., 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Dont Look Back"..Famous words from Dylan himself..however, I did..I bought the CD of the film soundtrack to Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid...

..and was delighted..even the deadening effect of a hundred cover versions and a thousand interminable bar room dirges of "Knocking on Heaven's Door", can take away the magic of the original..

..beautiful atmospheric music now completely tied in my mind to the Texas/Mexican borderlands..of The Old West..

This review is from: Carp Fishing on Valium (Hardcover)
One outstanding chapter..the one about the Stones...but the rest wasnt sure if it was a novel or a disguised autobiography..some nice touches but the book didnt hang together....only for Graham Parker or those who grew up at this time in Middle England..

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge masterpiece.., 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suttree (Paperback)
Perfect condition. Delivered well on time.

Ive read that this book took McCarthy 20 years to write. I can believe it - a classic of the kind of story where it takes 50+ pages to get involved but then you cant escape...just like his characters. Unbelievable sense of place. His description of the main characters wanderings through snow filled mountains was hallucinatory and will stay with me for ever. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another McCarthy masterpiece., 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Child of God (Paperback)
A stunning book. The subject matter is not for the faint hearted but McCarthy never flinches. Even while describing the most brutal crimes you are carried away by his descriptive powers. I have never been to this part of the world yet I feel I could paint a picture.

As described, sent on time. Well pleased!


Cities of the Plain (Border Trilogy)
Cities of the Plain (Border Trilogy)

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this Book, 18 Sept. 2010
Stunning, just stunning...like all this man's work..

Dont look for compromise or happy endings...but if you like the truth well told by a poet of the landscape [in this case the US/Mexican Border]this is your man.
