No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy


My son-in-law gave me this book, and when I asked him what it was about, he said it was about a drug deal gone bad and a hit man chasing people down. Sounded alright. And you know what, it was a great book. But for pete's sake, if you think this book was about Llewelyn and Chigurh, then you are an idiot or a young person, and frankly, there's not much difference. This book is about the old sheriff!! Jesus. And it is about having a way of life that is getting left behind by society, and that is something I can relate to. All this facebook and reality TV and thinking that everything is about you. It just wasn't like that before. And guess what, everything is not about you! So go back and read it again, and this time start thinking about Ed Tom Bell, and maybe you'll learn something about life.
