    " Although a compelling dialogue,it sometimes felt slightly animated and trite. An interesting play on terms though describing belief as seeing things either in black or white. "

    " Listened to this one on my iPod, which was a nice way to follow the dialog between the two main characters that spend the entirety of this play sitting and talking in an apartment. Not my favorite McCarthy book, but a quick listen (or read) and worth the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 4/14/2011

    " This was a very interesting book. It's clever and intriguing. It asks questions about why we're here and what is life all about and the responses are discussed amongst Black and White. Very different book for me to have read. "

    " Wow. This is a powerfully dark tale of religious hope and existential despair. The last part of the story was extremely gripping, and I think it ended as it should have ...... No happily ever after here "
