No, I think I would recommend the other reading of blood meridian.
I suppose my favorite parts are the judge's 'sermons' or the myths surrounding the judge throughout the story.
Some of the random acts of violence (such as the tossing of puppies into a river and shooting them for what seemed no reason at all) were almost too much for me however and I took breaks after several of those but maybe I'm just soft.
I liked his voice in general but the character voices he does, especially for 'the kid' are terrible and far too comical in my opinion. He gives very serious voices to characters that are a joke (the colonel or captain that the kid joins up with near the beginning) which indicates to me that the narrator does not have a very good understanding of the book.
I can't think of one that would suffice
great book but probably far too violent for some, ok reading
