Not as good as his other novels
on 8 June 2012
I have now read all of Cormac Mccarthy's novels coming to this one last. I enjoyed every single one of his books for the reasons that other reviewers give but found this less enjoyable to read. It darts about in time and place in a disjointed way so that the reader never knows quite where you are with the story and which character is featuring in the short sections that he uses. Since this was his first novel, maybe he was trying to impress with literary techniques? I would recommend any other of his books but those new to his writing should maybe start with one of the others.
