    1. This book was amazing. The prose were poetic. Reminded me of Cormac McCarthy scaled down a bit. A terrfic book.

    2. McCarthy-esque without all the annoying Spanish that I'm never really sure I translated correctly and you aren't left with quite as much despair and desolation at the story's end.
