All the Pretty Horses

I finished this book in little over a week, which I think is pretty good considering it was a hard book to get into. Overall, I liked it, but the writing is very sparse. No exposition, no quotation marks, which makes it a difficult book to follow. I understand why he writes the story this way; in order to show these are a certain type of man living in a hard land. I must say for a book banned for vulgarity and sex, this was one of the least gratuitous books I have ever read. The worst swear word in the book is damn. It was violent, but not overly so, although I am not the best judge of what is too violent…
