4 /5 Stars
Cormac McCarthy is one of our great writers, no doubt. The Road was a masterpiece. This one is very good, but not, in my eyes, amazing (which is what it takes for me to give 5 stars). He has an incredible ear for dialog, and I’m very much looking forward to the second book in this series.
Maybe I missed it, but he sets up a mystery (or a couple) and never resolves them. Again, might be in the second book..
