Awesome. Regardless of what you thought of the movie (I liked it), if you dig McCarthy, you have to read No Country for Old Men. It's a fairly quick read and it's in the same stark/bleak vein as Blood Meridian. Child of God and Suttree are also worth checking out. Somehow, I've yet to read The Road.I ordered a copy of Blood Meridian after reading your post and finished it last night. Great recommendation, thank you. Definitely want to read more of McCarthys work. Ive got the Border Trilogy on the way.
