Has anyone read the Border trilogy by Cormac McCarthy. I'm at the moment reading All the Pretty Horses, the first book, and it's amazing so far (almost at the end). The sparsely dressed language, how it puts the bleak and dry plains of Texas and Mexico in just the perfect light. In his words is more feeling than he could ever have achieved using adjectives. Dialogues that tell more just by being so short. Less is more and when it comes to a novel by McCarthy this is truly the case. When I open the book, halfway my first page, and I'm there, I'm riding besides Grady and Rawlins, feeling the heat, stained with sweat and smelling like horse, doing what I have to do. There is no middle ground. Either you get sucked in, or you lose a whole other experience.
