Well written and well read. The story meanders a little and isn't a simple story arc. I found it a little hard to figure out who the main character was, and who I was supposed to identify with, but I'd listen to this one a couple times, so I think it is worhty of full marks.
There are three different points-of-view throughout the book, and McCarthy switches perspective frequently throughout the narrative, which can make it difficult to follow in audio version. I kept getting confused as to 'who did what,' which probably is much easier to keep up with in a paper-based version.
This book was fantastic on two levels. One of pure entertainment and the other is profound thoughts. This book is a thriller mixed with great dialog and wonderful interior monologue. The characters are very engaging and the end of the piece is the best part.
This book was captivating and I really enjoyed it. I got bored with the last 45 minutes of the book though, I kept listening thinking something was going to happen, but it was all just he sheriff rambling about nothing.
Good book though, definately worth listening to.
Great story, absolutely beautifully told with great accents in the characters and you can see them as well as hearing their voices. Nobody could award less than 5 stars, with the story keeping you in suspense the whole way.
The Sheriff is hanging up his badge and figured he owned himself, and us, an explanation. Turns out he doesn't think he can save us. I figure he thinks we're so bad hurt that we're not worth savin'. Wish there was something cheerful to add. Really wish there was.
I found the story pointless, the author just wants to spew his rhetoric about what the world has become. The characters are all so intraspective, it got to be very agitating to listen to them go on and on. I did not enjoy this book at all, I forced myself to finish it and it gave me a stomach ache.
This is a book to be numberered among the greats. It will prove at times terrifying, sage, provoking and reflective. It is never boring or predictable. I had no idea who the author was nor who the reader was. I became an instant fan of both. It is a book that has the power to force a reader or listener to rethink where he has been and where he is going. I recommend it without qualification.
