“By far McCarthy’s most exciting and suspenseful novel in recent years, the story speeds along, the body count rising in shocking scenes of depravity.”– Mary Whipple


“No Country for Old Men is a thriller but it resists so many of the temptations and cliches of popular thrillers. It is gritty and violent, without reveling in its violence; its bad guy is chillingly evil without being boastfully so; and Sheriff Bell is the right combination of admirable guy and flawed hero.” – H. Cassell


“McCarthy is just as ruthless as Chigurh, the hit man. And there’s another surprise in story when it comes time to resolve Sheriff Bell’s story arc. You won’t believe that one either.” – Dave Schwinghammer


“This is a quick read. Fans of McCarthy will notice that the narrative diction is well pruned and reminiscent of Hemingway in comparison to his earlier works, so you can leave the dictionary on the shelf.” – Old Man Reader


“The result is an engrossing story where amidst everything else, a world that makes no sense on one hand and perfect sense on the other is contemplated. Those looking for escapist fun need to look in other places and steer wide of this book.” – Kevin Tipple
