Description

Adapted by the Coen Brothers into an Academy Award winning film, No Country For Old Men is a dark and suspenseful novel from Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road.

Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice - leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

Our customer reviews

This is such a great book, I simply don't know what else to say but WOW!! I saw the movie first before reading this book and I now know why the movie was so good, because this book is fantastic!! Not only is it an entertaining story, it also touchs on so many cultural and social issues. After reading this book (and 'The Road'), Cormac McCarthy is officially my all-time favourite author. I can't wait to read more of his work!show more
