Reviewer: Alan Cheuse, (USA Today)

"A Western that evokes the styles of both Sam Peckinpah and Hieronymus Bosch...McCarthy employs a neo-Biblical rhetoric, a soaring, pulsing...always stirring diction without parallel in American writing today."

Reviewer: Michael Herr

"A classic American novel of regeneration through violence...this is [McCarthy's] masterpiece."

Reviewer: John Banville, (Independent (London))

"The book reads like a conflation of 'The Inferno,' the 'Iliad,' and 'Moby Dick'...an extraordinary, breathtaking achievement."
