I'm not for a minute saying it was rubbish - rather, I thought it was a pretty good, rapid read - but I just couldn't see what all the fuss was about.
I'd just re-read Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison - a genuine work of art - which may have dramatically influenced my thoughts.
I just think Cormac McCarthy is all bit hollow and pseudo-intellectual.
