Recently started Cormac McCarthy’s ‘Blood Meridian.’
Oh, that’s on my bookshelf. I look at it all the time and think I should start it. My friend said it’s one of the darkest books he’s ever read.
Heh yah the writing style makes it a bit tricky to follow, I think. Maybe it’s cause I always start reading at 2 in the morning lol…
on that doom country vibe lately
Yeah that’s… that’s a read right there. I’ve read some dark stuff over the years, and that tops 90% of it. Good stuff once you get used to the writing style.
That’s one of my favorite books. Have you read anything else by McCarthy?
nope first one
The Road is my favorite.
That’s a fantastic one, and quite different from Blood Meridian. Much quicker read, easier to digest, but so emotionally evocative and moving. He’s such a great writer, definitely one of my favorites. Everything I’ve read by him has stuck with me big time, particularly:
The Border Trilogy
No Country for Old Men
