The man finished the book He closed the pages tightly together then put one foot on the floor then the other then used his hands to push himself up out of the chair and then put one foot in front of the other until he had walked all the way to the book shelf and then put the book on the book shelf The deer walked in The man whirled around and fired once with his pistol and the brains of the deer went flying out the back of its head and painted the wall a color dark red like blood The man sat down again like a man sitting downI didn't really like the book said the dead deerI reckon I was pretty conflicted replied the man grimlyHis writing style is pretty problematicI reckon his style is perty silly he just strings a bunch of them declarative statements together like 'the man did this then the man did that etc but they don't paint no picture they're done totally unevocative of anything I reckon it don't take no skill to just state in excessive detail what someone is doing It takes artistic skill to say it in a way that done bring it to life for the reader and he don't done really do that I reckon it's some sub Hemingway shit he's doingIt's not all bad thoughI reckon some some of the images t'were pretty powerfulAnd the judge is a memorable characterI reckon he's the only one though All the rest of them there charac'ers ain't real memorable like he done put no effort into 'em 'cause he spent all his time on the judge And that there whole novel was allwhatdjacallit structureless and stuff And real repetitiv' tooI read that he doesn't see why people like Proust and James because he thinks all novels should be about life and death thingsI reckon that's 'cause he's too obsessed with subject matter and not enough with style and artThe dead deer nodded and walked out The man slowly got up again by putting one foot then the other on the floor and then used his hands to push himself up out of the chair He fixed himself a drink and resolved not to take any book recommendations from Harold Bloom

Tern novel and the mythology of the Wild West Based on historical events that took place on the Texas Mexico border in the 1850s it traces the fortunes of. Breathless Uniue Brutal There are many words that could be used to describe Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy For me this was my second time through and I liked it far better than my first reading Judge Holden John Job Glanton Toadvine and the kid are all fantastic characters I shudder to think that the horrors visited upon the Indians and Mexicans and homesteaders were all based on fact The apocalypse described in The Road is not too far a cry from the hellish country on the US Mexico border which has not really changed if we exchange the scalper mercenaries for the drug cartels and yet the descriptions and language of Blood Meridian is beautiful to me The symbolism here is uite strong and one wonders whether the author is a nihilist like his characters or if there is really some redeeming uality buried deep inside mana true American masterpieceI would read The Border Trilogy after finishing Blood Meridien I have not tried Suttree or Child of God but they would have a hard time to top this one

Cormac McCarthy's west of absolutes is a wonder to behold Villainous attacks on people devoid a home desecration of the westland listings of all things in the majestic transitory landscape like observations by Darwin at the Galapagos in lush sometimes horrific detail murky human psyches no dialogue and especially that campfire philosophy by which anyone can find some sort of meaning in their modern lives especially if you're fortunate enough to inhabit the places which Mr McCarthy describes are all the ingredients of a McCarthy book the way this one is polished symbolic graphic makes it my favorite McCarthy book by farThe apocalyptic landscape of The Road is here but it's thankfully not as literal as that novel about human annihilation after cataclysm If you were shocked by the cannibals eating babies in that one well you ain't seen nothin' This ultraviolent account is well researched well versed poetic The Blood Meridian and the act of scalping are one you simply lose most of your head as you look at the very promise the west has had to offer My favorite line A lamb lost in the mountains cries Sometimes comes the mother Sometimes comes the wolfLawlessness and betrayal reigns supreme Apache attacks famine are omnipresent; it is this blood thirst that shocks the reader and at once impels him to continue reading to see what befalls the group of barbarians sinners next
