I would love to hear from anyone with thoughts on this.

And by the way, The Road just won the Pulitzer.
I think there's another thread on this somewhere, but I can't find it right now.

A phenomenal book that everyone must read.
If you haven't read it, read it. Now.

I loved it. Makes me want to try "No Country for Old Men" again.

I read "No Country" some time ago and 'blogged my impressions (with possible spoilers) here. I was intrigued and disturbed by the book; the imagery of the last couple of paragraphs is so vivid that, even now, it stands clearly before my mind's eye. I look forward to reading more Mccarthy.

Would love to talk about it if any one else has read it. I'll start a dedicated thread.

Also, the trilogy of books doesn't include Meridian, but All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing and Cities of the Plain. Those might worth starting with. Maybe Suttree? I've not read it, but a few friends have and loved it. My vote, though, is for The Road. I feel like it sums up his career themes well.

As far as McCarthy goes, I love BLOOD MERIDIAN and don't really get the enthusiasm for THE ROAD.
