This is the dark but striking story of Llewelyn Moss, who goes on the run after being tempted by the bounty of a drug deal gone awry.

What the Critics Say

"While the action of the novel thrills, it's the sensitivity and wisdom of Sheriff Bell that makes the book a profound meditation on the battle between good and evil and the roles choice and chance play in the shaping of a life." (Publishers Weekly)

    "What a Story."
    Where does No Country for Old Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    From Audible, probably 3 or 4


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most definitely. It was so different to anything I have ever listened to and I couldn't wait to hear where the author would take us next!


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Who was the most memorable character of No Country for Old Men and why?

    The Sheriff. How honourable can one get?


    Any additional comments?

    An extremely deep story. Had to back track a number of times to make certain that I understood exactly what was transpiring. Very clever.

    Voice intonation


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Saw it, did not enjoy it

    "just like the film, totally awesome!"

    this is just like the film with a bit more dialogue from the narrator. If you loved the movie, you will love the book.

    Story
    "Did I miss something?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I read some reviews that it wasn't one to listen to idly; that you'll miss the story. Boy, that's an understatement. The reader sounds like HE'S about to fall asleep during the short story, and it was over before anything happened. Makes me wonder how the movie is...


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm now listening to 50 Shades of Gray with the wife. Not really any better.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Barrett?

    dunno, couldn't get engaged in the story enough to tell.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I'd pass this one over for something more engaging unless you're going to be listening closely- but who does that? The whole point of listening to an audible book is to multi-task!!

    Story
    "I may need to listen to this again."

    Not a book to listen to while doing "thoughtful" stuff. I think I missed some of the subtleties of plot. The story was deep and detailed and I found myself holding my breath more than a few times as the protagonists made there way through the tale.

    I liked the narration, it felt "right" for the story.

    The violence was quite shocking but not described gratuitously.
