Not up to the standard of his others
on 15 June 2014
This was my fourth Cormack McCarthy novel. I gave the others 5 stars. I like the way he shows the darkest corners of humanity and yet gives little glimmers of light. This offers darkness and throws no light. It is a character study of a depraved down and out. But it is short on the study and long on the depravity. I found little justification or insight.
