No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy

I wanted to read more McCarthy after loving The Road. I couldn’t get into Blood Meridian, but I instantly got into this book. It tells the story of Moss who takes cash which he finds in the desert at the scene of a drug deal gone very wrong. He’s then pursued by Sheriff Bell and hunted by the unforgettable, evil Chigurh. The novel stays true to McCarthy’s minimalist writing that I fell in love with, yet changes viewpoints and relies on more dialogue. Must confess, I was sometimes confused by the different viewpoints, but in a good way.
