All the Pretty Horses

All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy

This will be the opening paragraph to all future Cormac McCarthy reviews:

I am a huge Cormac McCarthy fan. His ability to tell a story is unmatched among modern American authors. What makes his stories so compelling is that he does not ignore or sugar-coat human nature - he is willing to explore the very worst of us and the very best of us and everything that falls in between. The stories I have read have all caused me to ponder the great questions of life and morality posed by his stories.

Texas, Mexico, little punctuation, and Cormac McCarthy...enough said. Great story!

If you like western fiction, do yourself a favor and read this book, followed by The Crossing, and then Cities of the Plain.
