- babysitting the argument in my head
I have read All the Pretty Horses and also The Road multiple times. Back in the day? How many notches do you have on the kitchen wall? I get that it’s not your pleasure .. but I’m looking for something special, turn me on please.I always thought that McCarthy was overrated personally. Just my personal preference but I don’t like writers who construct a large block of text that’s composed of a single sentence. Faulkner was another one who did massive sentences, I find it annoying.
He’s definitely a good/imaginative writer but people were losing their shit over that guy back in the day, I explored his stuff a little bit (“Blood Meridian” and “The Road”) but ultimately his writing style just isn’t for me
