DAMN YOU BOOKS that break my heart.
I really need to stop reading books that are so heart breaking when I am at the gym. It is not really manly to cry when you are using a elliptical machine.
Mr McCarthy lives in Santa Fe and spent a lot of years in El Paso, and living here in the same desert I can image days spent out on the desert had to be an influence on his writing. It a scary place that can kill or wound and very unforgiving if you don't give it the proper respect.
The language is short and easy and maybe repetitive but delivered in way that just knock you for a emotional loop. There are so many points where I just stopped and dwelt on what I had just read as it had moved me so.
They is must read. And a new favorite.
