Blood Meridian - Cormac McCarthy - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Blood Meridian:

A runaway's Western depravity.

My favorite Cormac McCarthy quote from the book:

"If God meant to interfere in the degeneracy of mankind would he not have done so by now?"




Questions to ponder while reading Blood Meridian:

What dark things do you desire?

Is this how the West was won?

My review of Blood Meridian:

One of the darkest books I have read.
(his book The Road is also pretty damn dark)

Snarly, haunting characters.

It is almost too much.
