Publisher's Summary

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.

Llewelyn Moss is hunting antelope near the Texas-Mexico border when he stumbles upon several dead men, a big stash of heroin, and more than two million dollars in cash. He takes off with the money, and the hunter becomes the haunted. A drug cartel hires a former Special Forces agent to track down the loot, and a ruthless killer joins the chase as well. Also looking for Moss is the aging Sheriff Bell, a World War II veteran who may be Moss' only hope for survival.

Raw and lean, No Country for Old Men is another masterpiece from one of America's acclaimed novelists.

What the Critics Say

"No Country for Old Men gets off to a riveting start as a sort of new wave, hard-boiled Western....Harrowing, propulsive drama." (The New York Times)
"A mesmerizing modern-day western....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)
"Shades of Dostoyevsky, Hemingway, and Faulkner resonate in McCarthy's blend of lyrical narrative, staccato dialogue, and action-packed scenes splattered with bullets and blood. McCarthy fans will revel in the author's renderings of the raw landscapes of Mexico and the Southwest and the precarious souls scattered along the border that separates the two." (Booklist)

    "Excellent!"

    I saw the movie, and I read the book. I enjoyed the narration of it as well. No Country can be dark and depressing in some places. It's a book that older readers will probably appreciate more so than younger readers. Although I'm the consummate optimist, I find the writing and the story to be very engaging. No Country for Old Men is definitely one of my favorite books and this is an excellent rendition of the book.

    "And then I woke up."

    The greatest sad story. This is my second read. I'm teaching it too. I find the style so different. So unique. Makes me want to read more of his writing. I read/watch The Sunset Limited which shares some of the themes and style. Cormac McCarthy makes me want to be a better writer.

    "Pointless"

    If you are looking for a book where just about everybody dies, the ones who live don't seem to accomplish anything, and ends with about as much closure as the conclusion of a first chapter… No Country for Old Men is your book:/

    "Hard to finish"

    Lost interest after certain characters posts ended. Made it hard to finish. Don't know how the movie will play out.

    "Anton Chigurh will stick for awhile"

    My second Cormac McCarthy novel (the Road) and it did not disappoint. Better than the movie, and Chigurh is as disturbing a villain as you'll find. The performance was top notch, well matched to the story.

    "Malaise"

    I liked the plot of how a man does a wrong thing & then tries to right it only to be punished for it. I liked Anton & his determination to keep his promises no matter how horrible they are.

    "Masterpiece"

    This book is very entertaining. It was not a bit dull, and it certainly wasn't predictable (even though I have seen the film). This book asked a lot of deep questions and brought up important themes such as change in a person's life. I highly recommend it to anyone.
