All the Pretty Horses

This is my second time reading this McCarthy book and I may have enjoyed it even more on the second go around. I know I definitely liked it more than I did the first one Cormac McCarthy book I ever read (Blood Meridian). Written in his signature southern, rustic drawl the story follows a young rancher and his friend who have nothing to lose.

The two teens leave Texas with nothing but their horses and dreams of a quiet existence in the wild Mexican frontier. On the way they encounter another young man who ends up tampering with their dreams of an idyllic future. What can their friendship withstand? Trials, guilt, love?

This is a must read for fans of westerns, literary novels, and Cormac McCarthy.
