    Blood Meridian tells the story of a teenage runaway known only as ‘the kid’, who falls in with a group of notorious outlaws: the Glanton Gang. Violent, direct, and extraordinarily powerful, the novel traces the destiny of ‘the kid’ as he falls further and further from grace, and into the clutches of the mysterious and demonic Judge Holden.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I think I would recommend the other reading of blood meridian.


    What was one of the most memorable moments 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.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I can't think of one that would suffice


    Any additional comments?

    great book but probably far too violent for some, ok reading
