McCarthy is such a talented writer. His figurative language is enviable. How I wish he would punctuate! This story was gruesome, but compelling. More of a guy's book. Even so, I'm glad I read it. I see why he's won so many awards.

“Netta’s dead.” Chapter 23 The ride to town was a horrid déjà vu. Bea Dot had not ridden through Pineview since the day she arrived, the day she met Will.
