Adapted by the Coen Brothers into an Academy Award winning film, No Country For Old Men is a dark and suspenseful novel from Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road.
Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice - leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?
No Country for Old Men is a severed head and shoulders over anything else written in America this year. * Independent on Sunday * A Western thriller with a racy plot and punchy dialogue, perfect for a lazy Sunday. * The Times * [An] utterly absorbing, chilling tale . . . One of the most sinister characters in modern American fiction. * Herald * A fast, powerful read, steeped with a deep sorrow about the moral degradation of the legendary American West. * Financial Times * It's hard to think of a contemporary writer more worth reading. * Independent * No Country for Old Men is a compelling, harrowing, disturbing, sad, endlessly surprising and resonant novel. -- Robert Edric * Spectator *
