Great story!

McCarthy's writing style takes some getting used to when first starting the book. I would encourage readers not to be discouraged by the writing style. Honestly, the writing style actually enhanced the story for me. I think had it been any other way, it wouldn't have had the same impact. To me, it reinforces the feeling that something isn't quite right with the main character and his quest.

It's a wonderful adventure story with just the right amount of romance and tragedy thrown into the mix. Looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.

Nancy I thought this was a great stand-alone story, but reading the entrie trilogy really brought out the complexity of these characters and their experiences.
