West with Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge
Blood Meridian is one of the bleakest books I've ever read haha. Made the mistake of reading it on holiday. I felt mentally violated when i finished it.Just finished Cormac McCarthy's latest novel, The Passenger. I am a big fan and have read all his other works. Unfortunately, this one doesn't even make the top five. McCarthy fans will enjoy it for what it is, but the uninitiated should start with No Country For Old Men, The Road, Child of God, or even Blood Meridian (his best IMO).
