I checked this out from the library last week and read it in a few long sittings. I love how McCarthy is equal parts literary genius and entertainer. I found myself alternately gripping my seat and pausing to look up words like “vermiculate” and “crozzled.” The post-apocalyptic story he weaves is a profound page turner, detailing both the horrors and the great good of humanity.
I am very excited to see that a movie is set to come out in 2009, starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron. From the photos below, it looks exactly how I’d pictured it while reading. CANNOT WAIT.
