After nine months of examining and analyzing U.S. military involvement in Iraq, the bi-partisan Iraq Study Group issued this report on Dec. 6, 2006. The report calls the situation in Iraq "grave and deteriorating" and says, "There is no path that can guarantee success, but the prospects can be improved".

Well informed and practical solutions. Too bad that Bush is not smart enough to implement it and that Iraqis are not civilized enough to adopt it and make their lives better.

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.

All the Pretty Horses It's Not

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-11-05

There were moments of the Faulkner like writing that set All the Pretty Horses out as among the best books I have ever read. For the most part this book pandered to extreme psychotic violence. The ending was absent and wholly unsatisfying. For a book and author that I looked forward to reading with great anticipation it pains me to give this book a huge thumbs down - it was nearly a complete waste of time.
