Lovereading view...

No Country for Old Men seems to have divided critics but is probably only because it has been seven years since his last and it is very different to his earlier novels. A tight thriller packed with drugs and violence set in the American West, it's well worth a look. Pick it up and decide for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

If you like Cormac Mccarthy you might also like to read books by Charles Frazier, Thomas Eidson and Annie Proulx.

Synopsis

No Country for Old Men by Cormac Mccarthy

Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, instead finds men shot dead, a load of heroin, and more than $2 million in cash. Taking the money out, he knows, will change everything. But only after two more men are murdered does a victim’s burning car lead Sheriff Bell to the carnage out in the desert, and he soon realizes that Moss and his young wife are in desperate need of protection. One party in the failed transaction hires an ex-Special Forces officer to defend his interests against a mesmerizing freelancer, while on either side are men accustomed to spectacular violence and mayhem. The pursuit stretches along and across the border, each participant seemingly determined to answer what one asks another: How does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

Reviews

'This is a monster of a book. Cormac McCarthy achieves monumental results by a kind of drip-by-drip process of ruthless simplicity. It will leave you panting and awestruck' Sam Shepard

'Imagine the Coen brothers doing a self-conscious riff on Sam Peckinpah and filming a fast, violent story about a stone-cold killer, a small-town sheriff and an average Joe who stumbles across a leather case filled with more than $2 million in hot drug money' International Herald Tribune

'A profoundly disturbing and gorgeously rendered novel . . . No Country for Old Men is a page-turner' Washington Post
