Comac McCarthy is considered one of America's greatest living writers. His epic novel No Country for Old Men, released in 2005, traces the violent consequences of a single decision that soon spirals horribly out of control

This is the dark but striking story of Llewelyn Moss, who goes on the run after being tempted by the bounty of a drug deal gone awry. A thrilling sequence of events ensues as a ruthless hitman and benevolent sheriff trail him in a nail-biting and suspenseful chase that will decide Moss's fate one way or another

The novel was recently made into a critically acclaimed film by the Coen brothers, winning four Academy Awards.This is the third Cormac McCarthy novel to be released by Naxos AudioBooks this year.

    " a man comes across a shoot out and walks off with some cash, chaos ensues "

    " This was my 2nd McCarthy book and I read it because I was mesmerised by The Road. I didn't expect it to like it as much, but it was pretty close. Despite having to read a couple of bits twice to figure out what was going on, I enjoyed the way it was written and I'd have to agree with the review on the back cover that described it as 'compelling and disturbing'. As with The Road, it left me with heaps to think about afterwards. And the bit that really got to me was that Moss would have got away with the money if he hadn't gone back to give the dying Mexican the drink of water that he asked for. What's the lesson there? "

    " This was one of those books that grabbed me from the opening chapter. I had a feeling right from the start that I was going to really enjoy this story and I did. I had seen the film back when it first came out but after several years I had forgotten the story, so it was like coming back to it for the first time. I enjoyed most of all the settings of the motel after motel coupled with the feeling of being desperate, lost and on the run. Anton Chigurh is ranked up there as one of my favorite book villains! Following this up with a Blu Ray viewing of the film. "

    " Great novel. Saw the movie and was amazed by it's nearly scene for scene recreation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Rauschenberg | 1/22/2014

    " I actually enjoyed the movie more than I enjoyed reading this book but I enjoyed them both as a packaged deal. I felt there was a lot of questions left unanswered in the movie, which I saw before I read the book. The book went into more detail, obviously. It answered what was left hanging in the movie. I got a bit bored with Ed Tom's rambling but I loved the story. I would like to see a part two- movie and book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R.W. Ridley | 1/15/2014

    " My favorite McCarthy novel. It's a gritty tale told by the grittiest author alive today. "

    " Great book - awesome movie! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Son Porter | 1/5/2014

    " Are you fucking kidding me? This book is so good it rapes your mind. I had to check into a home for battered readers when I was done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jspatton Patton | 12/12/2013

    " Great movie, great book. And it didn't make me feel the need to down a bottle of Prozac like The Road did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben B | 10/9/2013

    " Great book. McCarthy is a wonderful story teller. The strength of the book is in the characters: Sheriff Bell in particular. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne - The Book Squirrel | 9/27/2013

    " Nothing to write home about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana | 9/13/2013

    " Excellent and brutal look at the dark side of our contemporary times. The title says it all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 7/30/2013

    " Lots of hokey passages where characters stare into the distance and "think about their lives." Lots of eye-roll inducing writing, and nowhere near as good as the movie, which gestures toward perfection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Tilling | 6/30/2013

    " I liked it, and it should really receive more stars, I am just a little jaded by books without proper endings, with this being the second in a row. Beautifully crafted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberto Ruiz | 9/16/2012

    " Dark humor, easy reading, great history, although I think Cohen brothers did a great job in the movie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy Butler | 6/4/2012

    " Enjoyed this, but for once I actually enjoyed the movie even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gilian | 2/14/2012

    " I read this book about three years ago so I don't even know why it's on here, except that I wanted to copy his writing style and it was good. I guess I should read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda B | 8/2/2011

    " Intense story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janelle | 7/28/2011

    " Cormac McCarthy has a violent streak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasonchicks | 6/28/2011

    " Better than the Border Trilogy, but not as good as Blood Meridian or The Road. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liann | 6/23/2011

    " I enjoy Cormac MaCarthy's writing style, but this one was pretty gruesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 6/14/2011

    " Nobody writes like McCarthy, unless it's maybe
    Richard Wright. Surprising, sad. I read just for
    the dialogue that makes my heart sing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale | 6/13/2011

    " McCarthy is the ultimate narrator of existential dread in an American idiom. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 6/13/2011

    " Cormac McCarthy has written a decent story. I'm aware that "No Country for Old Men" has been widely acclaimed. As you'll note from my rating, I found it OK. It just didn't capture my attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 6/10/2011

    " Makes you want a God with wrath as well as love. "
