Blood Meridian (Cormac McCarthy)

Blood MeridianThere is a great story there somewhere if you are actually able to read it. I think I had more luck deciphering Canterbury Tales in Middle English.

Positive: Negative:
Fascinating violent characters Turgid, roundabout prose is nigh incomprehensible at times
Shiver-inducing violent philosophical ideas Characters are hard to relate to or even understand
Conveys the harsh reality of Wild West area The plot feels random and almost redundant at times
