No Country for Old Men

4.12 based on 92401 ratings & 4826 reviews on Goodreads.com

Adapted by the Coen Brothers into an Academy Award winning film, No Country For Old Men is a dark and suspenseful novel from Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road.

Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice - leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?

No Country for Old Men is a severed head and shoulders over anything else written in America this year.
Independent on Sunday
A Western thriller with a racy plot and punchy dialogue, perfect for a lazy Sunday.
The Times
[An] utterly absorbing, chilling tale . . . One of the most sinister characters in modern American fiction.
