really liked it
Read in January, 2007

Unlike The Road, this novel never lets up on plot, & the characters are fleshed out -- especially Anton Chigurh, who has to be one of the best depictions of pure psychopathy ever written. It's over-stylized, but that never really detracts from the story. And unlike The Road, it makes a cohesive point: Shit happens, much of it downright nasty, & the best efforts of good people won't change that fact.
