I will start by saying without trying to sound overly stuffy or pretentious that I thought this was a brilliant, nuanced, multi-layered story that was told in extremely simple, straight-forward prose yet required the reader to sift through the dialogue and pull out the deeper meaning that McCarthy was trying to convey.

Or, put another way I would also say that the fact that the reader i. I thought the book was superb and I look forward to reading more by McCarthy very soon.

He aligned the springs and dropped the housing in. He felt and made sure it was seeded properly. He got the barrel and pushed that down.

It rotated and found the notch. Bryant rolled a thin one, tamping the tobacco, pinching off the surplus and returning it to the tin.

There was a dog. You fixin to make me flip a coin on you. No I particular aint. Well you know how this is goin to go when you done it. I know they gone say I stoled it from you, I knows it.

But I aint. It was the only way to do it. You got that right. Stole it. Dint stole nuthin. Likely cant be done no other way. Tried it ever which way.

Dint come out right. Rayner eased in a new clip, slid one into the magazine. Bryant watched the barrel. It was pointing at his gut.

A dog poked ragged ears round the plywood door. Rayner moved the barrel three inches sideways and put a cartridge into its brains.

It yowled somewhat and then it didnt. What you shoot a damn dog for. Wasnt your dog. Aint sayin. Well, it might could be emphasisin a point here.

Well, all right. You try an write a review of No Country for Old Men without doin it like in speech and like that. I knows you done it first.

You shouldna kindly stole it. The bullet put a hole the size of a fair sized bag of cashew nuts in around the upper middle of Bryants front carpicles.

Blood pooled over the plastic chair legs and the rough plywood floor. Bryants arm spasmed out onto the laptop and pressed SAVE.

Rayner stepped around the dead man and went into the sun. He got into the Dodge pickup and started the engine.

He let it idle for a while. He studied the next name on the list then threw the Dodge into gear. I tried this where I shot Manny, and it was pretty funny, naturally, but also a little creepy assassinating a fellow reviewer, so I let him shoot me.

Shelves: fiction. Wanting to give up Refusing to give up Not knowing the meaning of giving up. When drugs and money come to a small Texas town, sheriff-about-to-retire trope Ed Tom Bell is tasked with solving a deal gone murderously wrong.

This is indeed No Country for Old Men. A psychopath of a hitman, Anton Chigurh that last name being pronounced cheekily similar to "sugar," is making Bell's last days as sheriff a living hell.

Vietnam vet Llewelyn Moss isn't making things any easier. Moss happened upon the Wanting to give up Moss happened upon the drug deal aftermath, grabbed the loot and dashed.

Chigurh's been on his heels ever since. That leaves Bell trailing along behind them, picking up clues and wondering what in the heck they all mean.

I found myself actually pulling for all three men, yes, even the psycho killer and that scared the crap out of me.

He was such a good "bad guy" that I didn't want to see him die. There are a multitude of colorful and carefully crafted characters herein, some as thorny as the landscape.

How do I know the landscape is thorny? Cormac McCarthy made me feel it. The book is set in Thankfully, McCarthy doesn't overplay it with product placement Oh look at me in my Lee jeans and pornstar mustache drinking from a glass bottle of Coke while sitting on the hood of my '76 Camaro.

He uses period-appropriate props only when they are necessary. The plot is tight when it needs to be and breathes when it can.

The action fluctuates from relaxed to tense and back again. Not-completely-necessary-but-still-enjoyable story asides that you won't find in the movie often contain pearls of homespun wisdom like "Every step you take is forever.

You can't make it go away. McCarthy's austere style may not set well with all readers - he doesn't fuck around with flowery words much - however, the spartan prose marches soldierly ahead, pressing the story on, delivering to the reader a tale victoriously told.

Only one is more graphic than the other. You have to really use your imagination when reading the bible.

McCarthy fills in the cracks, takes away your imagination. I once read a story about a woman who lived with a tribe, and a man from another tribe came in and raped her.

After that her people killed every one of his people, When I was reading this book I began noticing how much the killings in it reminded me of the bible.

After that her people killed every one of his people, men, women, and children. Sound like a McCarthy book?

The murderers, in this case were the Israelites. It was okay for them to kill because there was a reason, but whatever that reason was, I do not know, but I could not see the justice.

He feels nothing for those he murders. If you want a psychopath to feel your pain, he has to look into your eyes.

Did God look into the eyes of those he had killed? Did he feel anything for them? Moss, the main character in this book, lives in a Texas desert town with his wife, and he loves hunting antelopes.

He was out hunting for antelopes on this fateful day, but instead of killing an antelope, he hunted up trouble. He got out his binoculars and scratched around the land for antelopes, finding instead three vehicles with dead bodies scattered on the ground.

She was told by an angel of God to not look back, if she did she would die. Moss looked back instead of running from the scene.

Moss went down to check out the dead too many times. The first time was fatal; the second was just dumb. But I am not saying that he died in the story; just saying.

One man was still alive and asked for water, just like Lazarus,the man in hell in the New Testament, had. Then Moss checked out the vehicles, found heroin.

He left the heroin where it was and walked down a bloody path where he found another dead man--and money.

He took the money, went back to his truck and then home to his wife. I thought then that his wife was now good as dead.

She should have left him when he told her about the money. Maybe she should have left him long ago. Life is like that, sometimes you get only one window of opportunity.

Whatever happens now is fate. View all 12 comments. Oct 31, Katie rated it it was amazing Shelves: set-in-the-us. I'd already seen and loved the film.

I found my memory though was ingenious in withholding knowledge of what happens next until it happened on the page.

The novel is written in the simple prose a gifted but alienated teenager might adopt. Up to the half way point it reads like a darkish crime story without much depth.

Then, of a sudden, there's this hallelujah moment. The baddie delivers a speech about why he has to kill this innocent girl and it's as if lights were suddenly thrown on to reveal I'd already seen and loved the film.

The baddie delivers a speech about why he has to kill this innocent girl and it's as if lights were suddenly thrown on to reveal all the clever and wondrous design of the novel which had been taking place in the dark.

It becomes a kind of fable about the pathways of life and the nature of bad luck. From that moment on it was it was a fantastic and moving read with an especially goosebumping emphasis on the consoling and restorative beauty of human relationships.

The only bulwark we have against all the bad luck waiting in the wings out there. View all 31 comments. Shelves: my-reviews.

With a book like this, the movie pretty much made itself. You could've just as well filmed the pages being flicked through preferably by Javier Bardem, I'm sure he'd do it astoundingly and you'd get roughly the same experience.

I understand the comparisons being made between the film and the book. That's the kind of understanding guy I am.

I can only say both are masterpieces. It all starts with Cormac McCarthy though, and while the Coen brothers and the cast of the movie did a tremendous job, With a book like this, the movie pretty much made itself.

It all starts with Cormac McCarthy though, and while the Coen brothers and the cast of the movie did a tremendous job, I think the biggest piece of the praisecake should go to the author.

This book has many things that define good books: 1. Suspense: Danger looms everywhere as soon as that suitcase gets in the picture.

You can feel it breathing down the neck of everyone who comes near it. The main personificiation of this danger, Anton Chigurh, is one of the most legendary villains I've come across.

Cold, rational, in control. Pacing: While this is a book where you wonder what will happen next, it doesn't give you much time for doing that.

Because while you're wondering BOOM, there's a surprise for you. BAM, there's another one. Chigurh moves faster than your fears do.

Characters: Bell, the good. Chigurh, the bad. And everyone else gloriously in between, with their little views and wisdoms.

Speaking of wisdoms: The Bell-monologues are what really gave this book the extra touch for me. His fondness for his wife Loretta is the strongest counterweight to Chigurh.

There are things that Bell possesses that Chigurh can never put a hole in. Reading those monologues is like listening to your grandfather, full of wisdoms that seem so commonplace to the person uttering them that it becomes touching, especially in contrast with what's really going on in the world that has gone and changed around them.

Some of my favorites, that I'd like to print on little plaques and hang up around my kitchen: without quotation marks, they wouldn't feel right All the time you spend tryin to get back what's been took from you there's more goin out the door.

He said there was nothin to set a man's mind at ease like wakin up in the mornin and not havin to decide who you were.

I think that when all lies are told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time.

You cant corrupt it anymore than you can salt salt. You cant corrupt it because that's what it is. It's the thing you're talkin about.

I'm sure they's people would disagree with that. Quite a few, in fact. But I never could find out what any of them did believe. You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.

If you'd like even more wisdom, particularly pertaining to this book and its interpretation, you might like the views of someone who actually knows what he's talking about.

The perfect example of a book about being good and all the dangers and evil that someone may encounter. Anton Chigurh. Anton Chigurh is definitely one of the greatest villains ever created in fiction.

An amoral psychopath who will stop at nothing till he guns you down. The perfect punisher. McCarthy is Pulitzer winner for a reason! View 2 comments.

I expected an action-packed chase with lots of violence, but what I got was so much more. One day Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men.

When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain of catastrophic violence that not even the law can contain.

I wholeheartedly loved this book. You think this is a typical thriller about a badass pursuing a regular guy who should have left well enough alone, but it ultimately evolves into a brooding analysis of fate vs free will, and also good vs evil.

These are themes I love to read about, hence why East of Eden is one of my favourite books, and McCarthy really elevates it to another level.

Every quote worth noting came from those sections, they were just so full of wisdom. His love and tenderness for his wife felt like a nice counterbalance to all the evil and violence unfolding around him.

No Country also gives us one of the most formidable and shit-your-pants-scary villains in literature. Anton Chigurh is the embodiment of pure evil, the grim reaper.

As always, there is the traditional McCarthy style - no quotation marks - but I always surprise myself at how quickly I fall into the rhythm of his writing, and it ceases to be an issue within a few pages.

Overall, incredibly suspenseful. Highly recommend! View all 3 comments. Cormac McCarthy is not an overly descriptive writer.

But the antelope hunt in Southwest Texas that leads Llewelyn Moss to the bullet-riddled cars and corpses of the silent cartel battlefield is told with absolute clarity.

It played out somewhere in my cerebrum like a memory, nearly identical to the film adaptation by Joel and Ethan Coen.

It is a testament to the genius of all three men that the movie felt like a 'remake' of the 'original film adaptation' McCarthy condenses his prose into clean, spare lines of poetic brevity.

The skeletal structure of his language is porous, like the bones of eagles and vultures: it can take flight when it needs to fly, it can sink its narrative talons into heavy prey and dead-ugly notions, it can take to the air with these blood-soaked prizes.

Very few writers are comfortable with the high places he makes for his home, or the low places where he hunts for stories.

His narrative voice marks him as a blood relation to Faulkner, with a casual grandiloquence strained from the apocalyptic cryptograms of Revelations and the more ominous books of the Old Testament.

But if 'NCfOM' is a 'crime novel', and it is, McCarthy not only matches the genre's previous high water marks, but with 'No Country For Old Men', he floods the deep-carved banks of the Genre's narrative current with all the force of a million-year old glacial dam's final collapse, ice-cold waters turning parallel genre streams into a mega-river before spilling into an impossible system of ancient and carefully engineered locks, dams and channels, flowing to feed into the archetypal ocean of human knowledge.

The channel of Philosophy was built for regulating the tidal algorithms and powerful undercurrents that would protect the data by isolating whatever play-science variables find important to objectively judge just how sea-worthy the vessels of hypothetical Philosophy truly are as they pass through the system.

It was portrayed as it had to be: a cautionary tale, concerning an arrogant young man who renounced god and imagined himself beyond good and evil.

But all the questions asked by the existentialism of Sartre and Camus are plainly asked or hiding in subtext: How can I justify the restraint of selfish, natural impulses if good and evil are arbitrary and outdated notions used to manipulate the weak-minded?

Is a morality based entirely on logic and serving individual needs possible? Is it cowardice to submit to a moral and legal code that contradicts one's core philosophy?

In a world without gods and heavenly rewards, how can the individual justify self-sacrifice? With nothing but the void waiting for us after death, is dying to keep a secret that will save lives justifiable This presaged the overtly existentialist currents of Albert Camus' 'L'Etranger', with their fictional meditations on the dilemmas facing atheist or agnostic protagonists who let their individualistic philosophy guide their actions, taking them into territory deemed immoral and criminal, and then trapped inside hostile legal institutions with illusions of permanence and religious foundations built on shifting moral sands.

NCfOM should also be read as a conflict between the conservative notions of right and wrong held by Sheriff Bell, and the terrifying personification of moral relativism and the Nietzschean ubermensch, Anton Chigurh.

Burroughs Ron Hansen Michael Chabon Paul Auster Charles Portis Larry McMurtry hide spoiler ] Just as Llewelyn Moss declares war on Anton Chigurh, after realizing that the only way the assassin will let the woman he loves live is by sacrificing his own life, the Mexican drug-lords find him instead.

The narrative symmetry that favored a violent showdown between Moss and Chigurh is thwarted, in a shocking subversion of genre expectations.

And just as the enigmatic killer makes good on a terrible promise, as smart and deadly and unstoppable as some capricious Celtic god, his car is T-boned at an intersection, and he is badly injured.

A Random Act of Traffic; it comes too late to save a life, or to offer anyone an advantage -- Chigurh is the last piece left on the board.

And it's not a punishment, or a condemnation, since his 'sins' would demand a far more severe accounting.

It once again demonstrates that even the hardest and most terrifyingly competent killers are not immune to the many ways the world can kill us without caring or trying.

Whatever plans we make, they cannot compensate for the endless variables that number our days.

Sheriff Bell struggles to keep up. As the 'Old Man' of the title, his experience and intellect are not enough to stop the killer it is his sworn duty to stop.

He is unable to protect the citizens it is his sworn duty to protect. His thoughts punctuate the action as philosophical prologue, interludes, and epilogue.

His failure to understand the callous ease with which these younger men unleash death and suffering is a failure of age. The predatorial hunger and greed that drives the various gangsters of the borderland is something that fades with time.

The willingness to inflict harm remains, but not the eagerness, and killers that survive long enough to get old delegate these tasks once their hair has gone grey.

McCarthy rarely provides physical descriptions of his characters, leaving it to the reader to cast the roles. There is one scene in the novel that I felt was integral as a foreshadowing to the seemingly inevitable showdown that never happened.

It's also one of the most powerful and suspenseful passages in a book that is perhaps more gut-wrenchingly suspenseful than any other I've read; this is a truly existential crime novel, lacking any connection to myth or morality, subverting reader expectation and creating a sense of near helplessness.

With Cormac McCarthy, the reader always finds himself in terra incognita, without signs or maps or lines of demarcation.

The sun is always buried behind the clouds, but that doesn't mean it's going to rain. In safer continuums of literature, an overcast day always foreshadows The Storm.

This unpredictability is not a forced gimmick, it's thematic honesty, now that the young gods of chaos have taken an empty throne unchallenged.

Archetypal heroes will die unsung and unmourned. The moon will break in two, and drown the earth with its blood. When the Coen brothers significantly altered this scene in the film, after remaining so faithful to the source material, it surprised me.

Anton Chigurh's insistence on killing anyone who knows both his name and his face is a promise he fulfills several times throughout the novel.

In both the book and the film, after Moss has checked into a motel room following his first close call, he realizes there must be a tracking device hidden with the money.

He uses this device to get the drop on his pursuer. In the film, the dead-bolt is blown in by the compression-powered cattle-killer, stunning Moss.

He fires blindly, then escapes through the window. In the novel, however, Chigurh enters the room quietly using a key -- which would have made more sense in the film as well, since he killed the motel-clerk.

Moss waits until he enters, and manages to catch him off guard. Moss and Chigurh face one another, with the killer kept at gun-point, hands raised.

It is here, through Moss's eyes, that the reader is provided with their first and only description of Chigurh: " Pressed jeans The man turned his head and gazed at Moss.

Blue eyes. Dark hair. Something about him faintly exotic. Beyond Moss's experience. This is not McCarthy's best work But it's one of the most powerful crime novels ever written, and it is far more than a crime novel.

Norman Mailer, Thomas Pynchon and Denis Johnson have all immersed themselves in the genre, and written excellent books.

But 'No Country for Old Men' tops them all, in my opinion and those are three of my favorite writers. Even though writer Michael Chabon, a brilliant author in his own right and a fan of McCarthy, dismissed 'No Country for Old Men' in his essay collection 'Maps and Legends' as an unfortunate effort unworthy of his talent, I think the novel will be remembered differently by most.

Now that it has been adapted, and is one of the greatest films ever made, it will be nearly impossible to separate them.

But this is a novel that deserves to stand alone. Jan 13, Dan Schwent rated it really liked it Shelves: While out shooting antelope, Llewellyn Moss stumbles upon a crime scene: three trucks, all shot up, and numerous bodies.

Upon further inspection, Moss finds a substantial quantity of heroin and a briefcase containing over two million dollars. Moss takes the money and quickly ends up a wanted man.

Can Moss survive long enough to enjoy the money? This was my first McCarthy book and probably won't be the last.

I devoured it in a single sitting. The clipped style really drove the story forward, remin While out shooting antelope, Llewellyn Moss stumbles upon a crime scene: three trucks, all shot up, and numerous bodies.

The clipped style really drove the story forward, reminding me of Jim Thompson at times and Flannery O'Connor at others. The tension grows as Moss and Chigurh head toward the climax.

Sheriff Bell does his best to piece things together and keep more people from dying. A recurring theme through the novel is choices, how one's choices make them who they are.

I wanted to give this five stars but I couldn't for two reasons. The primary reason: What was with the lack of quotation marks and apostrophes?

Was McCarthy's keyboard defective? A little dialogue attribution would have been nice, particularly in the later chapters with Moss talking to other characters.

The other gripe is that the last fifty or sixty pages didn't live up to the promise of the rest of the book.

All in all, No Country for Old Men was a good read, especially for those who like a good pulpy crime story. It's easily worth an evening of your time.

I enjoyed No Country for Old Men more then expected. I think what helped my overall experience with this book was the narrator, Tom Stechschulte.

What a fabulous job he did and I'll be adding more audiobooks by him in the future. No Country for Old Men felt like a western but had a criminal undercurrent to it.

I enjoyed the dialogue in this one between all the characters and Cormac McCarthy did a fantastic job with the character, Anton Chigurh.

What a scary guy he turned out to be! The only thing that I felt could have been a bit better for me was the preachy tone of the book.

I liked some of it and felt like the character of Ed Tom Bell had some important things to say. He also sounded like a grumpy old man!

But it did make him unique and I guess that matters as well with characterization. There are a few differences with the movie and book.

Allow me a moment to let the book speak for itself. I guess you could say I do. Entwined amongst this storyline is that of Sheriff Bell, an old timer who has watched his corner of world deteriorate over the years due to the narcotics trade.

McCarthy is incomparable to any other author and is very much a love him or hate him type of storyteller. There is no world building — you are plunked right into the middle of a scene while it is taking place.

His stories are not for everyone as they are super light and fluffy. That was total B. It won all the Oscars which filled Tommy Lee Jones with glee.

This is my least favorite McCarthy that I have ever, ever read. And you know what that tells you? Not shit, except that the man can basically do no wrong in my eyes.

I can and will nitpick, but just know that I don't really mean it and it's only because I love you, baby. First thing's first: I saw this movie about a zillion times before I read the book, though I wish, I wish, I wish that I hadn't.

When an author bases a novel's emotional heft largely on the momentum of its action, suspense, and g This is my least favorite McCarthy that I have ever, ever read.

When an author bases a novel's emotional heft largely on the momentum of its action, suspense, and general thrills!

I am willing to acknowledge that it is unfair of me to judge the book based on this external factor. However, The Road was unaffected by my pre-read film viewing, and so I cast one stone.

Okay, so No Country is not as excellent as The Road. Again, not saying much. Second thaaang: Unlike in that one book I just mentioned, the staccato style did occasionally get to me.

I like to think of it as a warm-up exercise since practice makes perfect and all , but still I found it to be excessively clipped and jarring in some places.

Here and there, it was basically like this: "Moss needed to piss. He found a wall. He unzipped his Wranglers.

He pulled out his penis. Moss urinated. The wall got wet. Moss felt relieved. So long, penis. Expect no less.

Third: McCarthy is a craftmaster at evoking vivid landscapes. Added to his skill at articulating scenic minutia, I was actually just like Moss and his buddy, Chigurh traveling by car, train, and foot in Texas as I read, completed, and proceeded to mull over this book.

I felt the oppressive heat, witnessed the sprawling golden fields, and raced past the rotting roadside dives as McCarthy tromped through them in text.

It is eerie-cool to feel double-whammied by a book like that, and so I think I will make a point of being similarly literal again some time in the near future.

I'll try not to take it so far that I'm like some asshole who reads Under the Tuscan Sun on vacation in Italy right after a breakup, but ya know I wonder if astronauts read sci-fi novels in space?

Fourth and final point: I much prefer the fiery britches Carla Jean. That woman didn't actually quite take things lying down like a frightened and battered puppy.

Her extended scene with Chigurh was quite telling, as was her Bonnie and Clyde-like resistance to Sheriff Bell's interrogation concerning Moss's whereabouts.

I don't want to spoil anything, but I will say that despite the script's relative accuracy, there are some surprises yet as far as she, Chigurh, and Moss are concerned to summarize, the latter has a long scene with a character who didn't make the cut for the screenplay, but who reveals a lot about Moss through her interactions with him.

The book still has some stories to tell. It isn't all an echo. Anyway, read this book. It's McCarthy, dude. He takes the money, setting off a chase.

Mostly short sentences. Minimal and direct. To the point. It grew on me as the story progressed. I had no idea how things would play out with Moss on the run, and the others, acting for their often competing interests.

This unknown kept me engaged until the end. McCarthy does a great job setting the scene and time period in the book: s near the Texas-Mexico border.

It was easy to picture places, both cities and specific venues - motels, diners, gas stations. Workin a nine to five job. Eight to four, anyways.

Things happen to you they happen. This was my first book by McCarthy and I would definitely read more of his work. Jun 15, Trevor rated it it was ok Shelves: language.

To be honest, I found this a bit irritating. It jumped around a little too much and the violence was pointless and excessive. There was not a single character in this book that I would urinate on if they were on fire — their deaths, therefore, were devoid of interest.

Same crap, same fascination with guns and the voyeurism caused by the effect bullets have on the human anatomy - I wonder what it is about modern life that eroticises violence so much?

If you need your prejudices confirmed and reinforced about America - whatever those prejudices might be, I would suspect — this is as good a book to read as any.

He paints with his words a world fully realized; even with a sparse writing style in most of his books readers are subjected to a canvas that is multilayered, complex, and unique.

If you've seen the Coen brothers movie of this novel you already know how creepy Anton Chigurh is; the book paints him much creepier.

Layers, my friends, layers. Read the book. Then go out and read the rest of Cormac McCarthy's novels.

Un film che sfrutta un'ambientazione western con un tocco moderno, per condurci attraverso la violenza a tratti nichilista considero questa teoria filosofica un pilastro portante di no country for old men , in una caccia del gatto al topo, silenziosa, solitaria ed inquietante.

E proprio in questa terra arida lo sceriffo Bell si trova a dover osservare impotente la fuga di un uomo braccato da un folle killer.

Estremo sud degli Stati Uniti. Anton, uccisore seriale, sta seminando cadaveri. Tra le sue vittime appositamente scelte finisce anche una banda di narcotrafficanti.

Anton, che stava tornando in quel momento per recuperarla, cerca di ucciderlo. La voce vissuta dello sceriffo Bell accompagna le fotografie del Texas che scorrono sublimi.

Una trama apparentemente semplice e lineare da sembrare un fumetto di Tex Willer. Il deserto metafora di un vuoto ancestrale ,la scelta possibile, forse evitabile , irrinunciabile, che attraversa impetuosa l'anima umana senza argini senza uno straccio di certezza.

Se si vuole fare un gangster movie lo si faccia pure. Poca storia, pochi dettagli, ma grande cura delle impressioni che la regia suscita.

Ma dovevano venire i fratelli Coen per mettere un killer che sceglie se uccidere o no con una monetina? Ma che cazzo nessuno di voi ha mai letto un fumetto o visto un cartone di Batman?

Non ve lo ricordate "Due Facce", uno dei nemici piu' famosi [ Paragono spesso cinema e amore.

Ci troviamo all'inizio degli anni '80 in Texsas dove un reduce della guerra del Vietnam, [ Manierismo studiato a tavolino per le statuette Academy e trama completamente gratuita.

Tecnicamente riuscito, ma debole sul fronte dei contenuti. Pluripremiato immeritatamente. Diciamo che non se ne vedono molti di film come questo, e sicuramente i Coen sono riusciti a raccontarcelo in un modo particolare, in un modo diverso da come uno spettatore medio si aspettasse.

Uno dei migliori film che abbia mai visto. Un thriller atipico per molti versi che con il finale a sorpresa spiazza tutti.

Fedele alla trama dei celebre romanzo di McCarthy. Ma con tutt'altro spirito. Le riflessioni filosofiche quasi spariscono. A lungo lo sceriffo ha tentato l'impossibile: fermare il "lavoro" mortale di Anton Chigurh Javier Bardem , o almeno salvare la vita di Llewelyn [ Mutano i panorami, qui siamo in un Texas arso e polveroso che fa da sfondo [ Come Rambo, si cuce le ferite da solo.

Come Terminator, non muore mai. L'ultima personificazione del male al cinema ha un nome bizzarro che tutti storpiano Chigurh e un taglio di capelli altrettanto stravagante.

At its center is a figure of evil so calm, so extreme, so implacable that to hear his voice is to feel the temperature in the theater drop.

But while that chilly sensation is a sign of terror, it may equally be a symptom of delight. Non per capire da dove vengano i loro film beffardi e il loro humour nerissimo, ma dove vanno, cosa ci dicono davvero del mondo e dei loro autori.

These observations about the nature of love are made as a kind of invitation to read McCarthy's novel and see where you stand philosophically.

Is love only love for the Beautiful and Good, or can love have, as Simon May puts forth and illustrated by the respective objects of love of these 3 men , a more expansive and darker range?

What better novel could I choose than this heartwarming tale of human kindness from one of the most optimistic men on the planet, Cormac McCarthy?

In Llewellyn Moss is just a working Texan living in a trailer home with his young wife, Carla Jean. One day Llewellyn goes out hunting and comes home with a lot more than meat for the stew pot after he stumbles across the aftermath of a huge drug deal gone wrong in the desert.

The actions of those involved in the drug trade at that level have created an ocean of evil and chaos. However, something else lurks in those depths.

Anton Chigurh strides out of that ocean on two legs but still fully capable of devouring anything in his path with no more thought than a shark gives any fish it chomps.

He can swim or run, it makes no real difference to him as long as he gets to eat. What really worries Bell is that it seems like water is rising, and a lot of people seem willing to dive in so he's pretty well convinced that the entire world is sliding into hell.

The idea of a guy finding a bag of money and getting bad people on his trail has been done before. The characters also could be cliches.

The regular guy with a tough streak, the bad ass pursuing him, the honest law man, the worried wife, the roguish hustler looking for an angle, etc etc.

I could make some complaints about that might ordinarily knock it down from 5 to 4 stars for me. The story also seems to be littered with anachronisms for Despite that nitpicking this book hits an intersection of things I love.

It also has the advantage of being turned into the fantastic flm by the Coen brothers which is one of my favorite book-to-screen adaptations.

His Savages is also a black action comedy about people who think they can just dip their hands into that flow for profit and not get sucked into it.

They are wrong. It should also come with a warning label to abandon all hope before watching.

Thanks to all those who voted and commented without being a trollish asshat on my first reviews. It's genuinely appreciated, and I hope that you now all know better than to try and keep a bag of drug money you find in the desert.

View all comments. For those that saw the Cohen brothers' movie first as I did years ago , the book is as bleak and violent as the movie was.

Chigurh is probably up there with The Joker as one of the most evil, conscience-free bad guys in literature. He kills willfully and without a shred of remorse before slinking back into the woodwork unseen and uncaught.

Moss is a tragic, but heroic character who gets caught up with something far beyond his Coac McCartney's No Country for Old Men is a quick but intense read.

Moss is a tragic, but heroic character who gets caught up with something far beyond his abilities which are great to say the least to control.

Bell is precisely how he was portrayed in the film: tired, old, jaded. The writing is typically devoid of quotation marks but full of wonderful descriptions: "It was a big redtail Any small thing might venture to cross.

Closing in on the prey against the sun. Lost in the concentration of the hunter. This attention of Bell for the dead hawk mirrors his attention to the various victims of the cartel and Chigurh.

Small things. Things you wouldn't even notice. They pass from hand to hand. People don't pay attention. And then one day there's an accounting.

And after that nothing is the same. This is sort of the leitmotif of the entire novel. Nothing is ever the same.

Moss and the hitchhiker: "What do I gotta do for it? You don't gotta do nothin. Even a blind sow finds a acorn ever once in a while.

The last time we see Chigurh with Carla Jean, he again leaves her fate to the toss of a coin: "I only have one way to live.

It doesn't allow for special cases. A coin toss perhaps. In this case to small purpose. Most people believe there cannot be such a person.

You can see what a problem that must be for them. How to prevail over that which you refuse to acknowledge the existence of.

There is inescapable evil in the world and at some point you place yourself on one side or the other. When you straddle the line as Moss did, things usually do not come out well.

Nonetheless, it is powerful reading and of course was made into an epic film. Hard to forget View all 8 comments. May 24, Bill Kerwin rated it liked it Shelves: detective-mystery.

Yet, like the antagonists in Blood Meridian, McCarthy has imbued in Chigurh a strange integrity, a devotion to a natural order that I think is McCarthy's embodied illustration of evil - a man cut off and separated from the love of man or God.

McCarthy's lean, muscular narrative style is in masterful form for this dialogue on good and evil, and like other McCarthy novels, he pays no mind to popular ideals of what a story should say or do.

There is no warm and fuzzy Hollywood ending here, no cathartic summation. Mccarthy leaves the reader to ponder this modern tragedy without a clear sense of resolution, this is the present day, cultural Lamentation of Jeremiah, but without the prophet's faith.

The plot of the book, rather than the film follows the interweaving paths of the three central characters Llewelyn Moss, Anton Chigurh, and Ed Tom Bell set in motion by events related to a drug deal gone bad near the Mexican—American border in remote Terrell County in southwest Texas.

Well, if you saw the Oscar-winning film, you pretty much got the gist. Chigurh is the prototypical Boogeyman: a walking, talking Michael Myers c.

The novel grows on you. No Country for Old Men starts out in a thoroughly disjointed way. Multiple POVs, total lack of punctuation, dialogue rendered exactly as the characters speak it It could be about one Llewlyn Moss who stumbles upon a fortune while hunting antelope near the Rio Grande.

A tran This is started as a one-star book, then progressed to four slowly as the story unfolded.

A transaction between drug dealers has gone wrong, leaving a number of bodies, a huge stash of heroin, and a case full of cash.

Moss takes the cash and runs, knowing fully well that his life is changed for ever. Or then, it could be about Anton Chigurh, hired gun and cold-blooded killing machine.

He is entrusted with the task of finding the money taken by Moss. On the way, Chigurh leaves a trail of dead bodies, sometimes philosophising to his victims.

Or it could be about Sheriff Bell, bent on doing his job of keeping law and order and protecting the citizens of his county to the best of his ability-even though most of the time, he fails.

The story moves at a roller-coaster pace. The scenes are short and mostly disjointed: the author sometimes leaves a major piece of the action behind the scenes.

Characters come and go without any introduction. The sentences hit you like machine-gun fire. If you stick with the novel, after some time, you get accustomed to the style; it loses its annoyance potential, and the real story starts coming through.

For this is not the story of Moss, or of Anton Chigurh; but of Sheriff Bell, and the country he is a symbol of.

This country is absolutely heartless but imbued with a certain terrible beauty. This country sends forth its sons to die in Vietnam and Iraq.

It is, indeed, not a country for old men. Anton Chigurh is a masterly creation: one of the most frightening villains I have come across, because he is not "evil" in the traditional sense.

Chigurh is a philosopher, a believer in the karma of what he is doing, the karma which is unstoppable and which will find you out no matter what.

The scenes of him philosophising with Carson Wells and Carla Jean before he shoots them are terrifying for the lack of emotion in them.

It is also ironical that an out-of-control car driven by three junkies, an entirely chance event, ultimately proves to be his undoing.

But as I said earlier, this is the story of Sheriff Bell, who is atoning for a single act of cowardice during the second world war rather like Lord Jim.

We get to know this only towards the very end, after the whole affair of Moss and Chigurh is over and done with: then the story suddenly falls into focus, and the philosophical interludes of the sheriff interspersed throughout the novel with the main narrative starts to make perfect sense.

The killers, the chase and the shootouts are all just window dressing for the story of this one man as he tries to make sense of the conundrum of the meaning of life.

And he does find his answer, though maybe not the one he expected. The image of this man, standing alone in the midst of the desert, shoulders slumped in defeat against an increasingly violent and unjust world, is a touching one: and somehow heartening.

Because we know that he is the real spirit of the desert, the gunslinger of American myth who rides off into the sunset after taking care of the baddies.

And because we know that finally at the end of the trail, his dad will be waiting for him with the fire burning in the dark as he saw in his dream.

Ride on, Sheriff Bell. View all 23 comments. Aug 03, Robin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: good old boys and girls. Shelves: american , , literary-fiction , southern-gothic.

This is No Book for Tender Hearts. No Book for Gore Haters. No Book for Punctuation Police. But hot damn, it's a great book.

I was worried that it might be dwarfed by the exceptional movie version, but then I read three pages and was completely in the hands of this writer.

Yes, he writes without punctuation, in clipped, incomplete sentences. His voice is often and easily parodied. It didn't bother me, though.

The bare, unsentimental style suits this ruthless s cowboy story. There's almost no interiority here, by which I mean the author describing his characters' inner turmoil or thoughts.

There's no big backstory or even much physical description. There's just action, killer action, and some of the best dialogue out there, which tells us pretty much all we need to know.

Llewelyn Moss chances upon something that doesn't belong to him fatal mistake 1 and then returns to the scene fatal mistake 2 which sets the murderous story rolling along.

Anton Chigurh is probably the most heartless villain ever written if you can think of one worse, tell me! When I say vicious, believe me.

This should come with a rating of R for extreme violence. The themes of randomness and chance come up many times, as depicted by Chigurh and his dreaded coin.

The shape of your path was visible from the beginning. Also, the big, dark question of destiny is answered bleakly: Your notions about startin over.

Or anybody's. You dont start over. That's what it's about. Ever step you take is forever. You cant make it go away.

None of it. Sheriff Bell is always a few steps behind, and is the source of all interiority in the book. He's disillusioned with the world.

And who can blame him, after he sees the trail left by Chigurh and his terrifying air-gun-thing.

The author speckles the Sheriff's thoughts throughout the book, in short, italicised chapters. They provide a sort of moral anchor to the book, which is necessary and works for the most part, but becomes too much towards the end.

When all the spectacular action has wrapped up, when all the dead people are dead and the ones that survive have survived, somehow we are forced to keep reading more thoughts from the Sheriff - about how bad the world is, his experiences in the war, and other subtleties that are probably very meaningful but to which I became immune because by that point my interest had waned down to a disappointed blip.

How this book could be so razor-sharp and then so blathering brought down my review a star. Just a star, because it's SO good, it's worth reading.

But just be forewarned. It needs the cardio-conversion paddles towards the end. View all 43 comments. May 17, Annet rated it really liked it Shelves: literature-pure , have-to-read-again , dark , crime , wilderness-books-can-usa , gritty.
