Bleak. Mysterious. Meandering. Quietly beautiful, if sometimes too slow and drifting. Meaty. My only complaint is McCarthy's extensive use of Spanish dialogue, with little to no translation or explanation. I found that so much richness was lost to this. It felt arrogant and condescending. Otherwise, a great tale.
