I read The Road after practically everyone I know telling me how great is is. I must be honest and say I thought it trite. His style of writing seems forced and the events that took place in The Road are nothing new to anyone who has read post-apocalyptic fiction before.

McCarthy is fantastic. Blood Meridian is an all-time classic. Really enjoyed The Road, No County For Old Men, and Child of God as well. Really looking forward to The Counselor coming out later this year based on his screenplay. I've heard he is working on a new book called 'The Passenger' as well.

Readers of McCarthy might enjoy In the Rogue Blood, James Carlos Blake...or The Devil All the Time, Donald Ray Pollock. Easy enough to take a look-see before you read.

Yes, The Road and Blood Meridian are my faves. He has such a unique writing style.

I love Cormac McCarthy. His books are so beautifully written. You can smell the horse pucky. Very lyrical. All the Pretty Horses is one of my faves. I know they can be kind of depressing, but so worth it for the writing.
