Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy

Anyone read this? I am currently a little less than halfway through and it is an interesting book indeed, but it is very difficult to read. I have to be in a certain mood to read it.

Nope, but eventually I will. Everything I read of him is good, in fact, one of the few romance writers today that can keep me interessed for long enough.

started to read it last year and got to about halfway through...it was good but I didn't feel much connection with it...it was captivating at times but too distant, depressing and violent.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

BTW James Franco tried to develop it into a Hollywood movie couple of years ago although this project now seems to have been stalled. I'd say it would be a novel which suits relatively well for cinematic adaption and I could also imagine Franco as The Kid.

The Kid is supposed to be 14 in the book I believe. Maybe his younger brother would be the better choice.

Hmmm...I imagined he is at least 18-19...based on many details like fighting with tough guys as their equal he seemed to be a grown man.
