    Cormac McCarthy, best-selling author of National Book Award winner All the Pretty Horses, delivers his first new novel in seven years. Written in muscular prose, No Country for Old Men is a powerful tale of the West that moves at a blistering pace.

    Alan says: "Great story!"
    "McCarthy has done something magnificent."
    Overall

    Between Cormac McCarthy's writing and Tom Stechschulte's narration which I will vote for the "Best of Audible," this book ranks at the very TOP of all books I've had the pleasure of hearing/reading over the past few several years.

    The Characters are so well thought out and the landscapes and scenes are such that you are not so much outside observer as much as unwilling participant in the story at times. When the bullets fly...DUCK! But it's great. I keep playing certain chapters over and over. It's mesmerizing. At some point I'll see the movie.

    I wish I could meet these guys. Especially Sheriff Bell. I wish he were my uncle or something.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Touching and Heartfelt"
    Overall

    I was prodded by a friend to read this book, and instead I bought it from Audible. I am so happy to have heard the narrative from the author because I believe that only in his voice would you feel the magnitude of his emotions. I can't imagine the same experience with my own voice as the narrator. The story is wonderful. Both painful and joyous...so real. If you open your heart, there's a real chance you will cry.
