This is my first Cormac McCarthy read and I think I may have found another favourite author. This book just flows beautfully from start to finish. The story of itself is not that unusual, but the telling is wonderful. The two apsects that really resonated with me were; how McCarthy dealt with the individual characters and their predicaments, the balance between what we know of them and that which is hidden, the truth that we each live our own lives and no one can really preceive the other's deeper existence, was woven in to the story in a masterful way; McCarthy's writing just flows with complete and beautiful ease, from descriptive narravtive to dialogue and back again without interruption. I will be adding the remaining volumes in this triology to my wish list.

On the way to ajsmom in Canada. Hope it doesn't take too long, sent surface mail.

Journal Entry 8 by ajsmom from Quesnel, British Columbia Canada on Friday, May 14, 2010
Caught today, thank you very much!

Journal Entry 9 by ajsmom at Quesnel, British Columbia Canada on Tuesday, June 08, 2010
It took me a while to get into this book, and I almost gave it up about halfway through. Once the feeling of dread started to build, though, I had to keep reading. Ultimately rather depressing ("this isn't my country anymore"), I'm grateful for the chance to have read it. Thank you Casseopeaia and the 1001-library. I will contact grovalskii and send it along asap.

just received the book a couple of days ago. I saw the movie, but usually the books are better. can't wait to read this one.

Journal Entry 12 by winggrovalskiiwing at Zehlendorf, Berlin Germany on Thursday, November 04, 2010
As usual, the book was definately better than the movie. It was an enjoyable read, though I wish my Spanish was better. With my rudimentory knowledge I was quite lost a couple of times when the Spanish dialog wasn't translated. As with many of the '1001' books, I wonder why this one is on the list. It wasn't outrageously great. But still, I'm glad I got to read it.

I will send this book out as a bookring soon.

This copy of the book will stay with Nagwan in Yemen. I will get a new copy to send to oppem and maybe more readers if anybody else is interested? The new book is here.

Book has arrived safe and sound, will get to it as soon as I can.

12 Dec 10 - just finished this book and on the whole I enjoyed it. I also struggled to get into it at first due to the writing style, however once it got going could not put it down. The know very little Spanish which made some sections hard to follow, it is not always possible to get a google translation! It is easy to tell it is part of a trilogy as the ending is left open, I would be interested to read these to see where the story goes. I have the address of he next person so will get it in the post during the week. Thanks for sharing.

Journal Entry 16 by madmadge at Christchurch, Dorset United Kingdom on Wednesday, December 15, 2010
The book arrived today. I should be able to get around to it quite soon as I've nearly finished my bedtime book. Many thanks to grovalski for sharing and to kingfan30 for posting it to me.

NB: Am I correct in thinking this book was made into a film?

Journal Entry 17 by madmadge at Christchurch, Dorset United Kingdom on Monday, December 27, 2010
I didn't expect to enjoy this book when I first started reading it because it was in a strange style, i.e. not much punctuation, very long sentences and Spanish phrases that I didn't understand. However, it was surprisingly readable and I just rattled my way through it. It was like watching a very good and exciting Western and I loved the story of the two boys who set off for Mexico and their many exploits, including falling in love. I'm really glad I read it. Thank you for including me in the ring grovalski.

Just off to PM jenm82 for his/her address so I can send it on when I'm next near a Post Office.

Arrived today, will start reading it and journal when I'm done. :-)

EDIT: Can't get into this one, I'm afraid. I loved 'The Road', but this is a bit tedious to read. No matter, I have PM'd Nagwan and will send it on its way.

Thanks for letting me be a part of the bookring!

EDIT: Sent on to nagwan, apologies for the delay
