Read in December, 2007

It's a play by Cormac McCarthy that I read after seeing the film adaptation of his novel, No Country for Old Men. I asked my husband if he thought McCarthy was a Christian, and he told me to read this and see what I thought. I thought yes, but my husband wasn't sure b/c of the way he leaves things at the end of the play. The lack of punctuation and capitalization bugs me, but that's just me. A very thought-provoking, entertaining, quick read.

Ashley I haven't read anything else by him, much to Josh's dismay; but from what I know of him, Sunset Limited is, well, sunny, compared to his other books. I didn't find it too dark. It's a play, so reading a play is always a little stilted for me, so I get a little less involved.
