Reviews

Darkness stalks Cormac McCarthy's No Country of Old Men as four characters engage in a deadly journey that is triggered when Llewelyn Moss stumbles upon a truck with over $2 million in cash and decides to take the money. McCarthy's meditation on the nature of violence, good and evil, and the rolling dice of chance and choice is a bloody and broodingly atmospheric story that adapts well to the screen. The Coen Brothers' film version, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, somberly traces the novel's blood-soaked journey. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

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 *

Barrett delivers a standout performance in an artful abridgement that captures the essence of McCarthy's classic. Set along the border between the U.S. and Mexico, the story follows the tragic and bloody adventures of Llewelyn Moss, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, and the sociopathic killer Anton Chigurh. When Moss makes off with millions of dollars of drug money, his life changes forever as both Bell and Chigurh pursue him, the latter leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. Barrett's portrayal of Moss, Bell, and Chigurh are pitch perfect as are his renditions of the secondary characters and of the sheriff's first-person reminiscences interspersed throughout the novel. This audio book is a rare gem and a mandatory listening for McCarthy fans. A Knopf hardcover. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
