I don't frequently post here about the books I read, but seeing as the one I finished last night had me bawling my eyes out (which hasn't happened since I read William Maxwell's So Long, See You Tomorrow), I wanted to mention it... you know, in case you need a good cry. Barry turned me on to the books of Cormac McCarthy a few years ago. I loved all three in his Border Trilogy, especially All the Pretty Horses. And I totally enjoyed No Country for Old Men. But I was a little turned off by the descriptions I'd heard of McCarthy's most recent book, The Road, so I put off reading it for a while, even though Barry kept pushing it. What was I waiting for? I loved this book. Definitely not light summer reading, but truly amazing.
