You're in for a lot of run-on sentences, sad feels, and lack of closure. Better than the movie imo.

Get ready for violence. Uncomfortable violence.

Although I'd argue that Blood Meridian was way more harsh. Shit, I couldn't even read more than a few chapters of that book.

You really might as well just watch the movie, it's great. It won lots of awards for a reason.

The book itself was originally conceived by McCarthy as a screenplay, he only turned it into a novel after no studio initially showed any interest.

This. Child of God, Blood Meridian, The Road. Those are all Ive read of him. I havent read NCFOM or Suttree yet. I hear Suttree would be in second place as his magnum opus.
