“McCarthy’s philosophic and erudite dialogue, vivid explosion, and intriguing characters give the story a unique vitality.” —Booklist
More Praise for Cormac McCarthy:
“Like the novelists he admires—Melville, Dostoyevsky, Faulkner—Cormac McCarthy has created an imaginative oeuvre greater and deeper than any single book. Such writers wrestle with the gods themselves.” —The Washington Post Book World
“McCarthy’s prose [is] the most laudable, his characters the most fully inhabited, his sense of place the most bloodworthy and thoroughly felt of any living writer’s.”—Esquire
“McCarthy is one of the most richly stylized writers in American letters.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“McCarthy justifies the very worth of fiction in the consummate breadth and dimension of his work.” —New York Post
“The genius of McCarthy’s work [is] in its bold, seamless melding of private revelation, cultural insight, and unabashed philosophizing.” —The Village Voice
“He is nothing less than our greatest living writer.” —Houston Chronicle -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

of the actresses, but also the beauty of the
dialogs impressed me. What made me
buy the book was the wish to reread the
dialogs. The book makes the movie come back
to one's imagination, but leaves you the time
to think about the dialogs.
Great, I enjoyed it.
Film und Buch sind aus meiner Sicht in flop. also nicht kaufen

The dialogue veers between dense and beautiful philosophical musings and snappy, often profane and jargon-filled realistic dialogue. The mixture works beautifully, at least on paper. It is also interesting that this most deliberately philosophic and anachronistic of modern writers should, in this script, be so at home in the world of computers and wireless communication. He turns the jargon of those subjects into pure, if at times impenetrable, poetry.
Bravo, Mr. McCarthy. Hopefully, you will have an Oscar and perhaps a richly-deserved Nobel in your near future.
This movie makes the viewer ponder the importance of pushing risks to the edge and respect the gravity of the consequences if any one of a great number of things goes wrong.
I think the domestic audience will not reward this movie with an impressive run at the box office; however, I believe the international audience will greatly appreciate the decisions made to keep this movie as original and unconventional as possible.
This is the first screenplay I've ever read and it was an interesting experience. It didn't feel as disjointed as I thought it would but I think this story would have been better told in the traditional novel format. I say this because the theme of the book is 'Choice' and with such a theme you need to delve deep into the characters' psyches and backgrounds in order to understand their motives. It's almost impossible to do this in a screenplay. Another problem with the format is that the consequences of the consellor's choice never feel as serious as they should because the characters' actions and happenings in the book are described as they would be in an instruction manual.
Despite not enjoying this read I still am a big fan of McCarthy's work because he is very good at using his character's dialogue as commentary on the human condition. His spartan use of language never leaves you wanting more and gives his writing a beautiful and unique rhythm and feel.
