The script follows the book well, with some chronological exceptions. It captures the spirit, but misses some of the rich detai, as films must do.
One thing that annoys me is McCarthy's maddening writing style. He often writes sentences that last 26 lines in a kind of stream of consciousness, and if you blink you lose your place and have to start again from the first word. He also refuses to use quotation marks, and some questionable punctuation. You forget who is saying what. But it is a super story line. He makes me think of Hunter Thompson, and i think maybe he was hitting the bottle when he wrote some parts of it, As a plot, I rate this one up there with JIm Harrison's After the Fall, in spite of his wacky writing style.
I agree with other reviewer's praise of McCarthy's writing style. It is to me unlike any other. He describes scenes with such vitality and attention to detail, the reader is flung headlong into them. My only contention with this book and reason for not adding the 5th star is because of the very frequent use of Spanish words, phrases and even full out dialogue.
I found it necessary to have a Google Spanish to English translator at hand, which was a nice way to increase my Spanish vocabulary, but was also a bit distracting. Overall, the story and characters are wonderful. I feel that I can now better relate to and appreciate the proud old Texas culture. I highly recommend this book and author to anyone who appreciates a well-written story.

This is a reader's dream, 1, hard-bound pages, with an embroidered gold satin placekeeper. This is a book to keep and treasure, that you will read again, and that you will want to pass on ideally to a son , maybe adding your own note to the lovely dedication, almost hidden in the back pages. From a teenager to a year-old man, it was the same books, over and over.
He never spoke of the west, of cowboys or gunfights or life on the range, but his unending flight there told me. I don't know what drew him, what he was missing in his life as an Army officer or husband or father. Maybe freedom, possibility, or just predictable simplicity. McCarthy's three books in this trilogy belie this assumed simplicity. The characters are simple, unassuming, honest, hard-working people to whom horrible things happen.
Simple choices lead to life-altering events, saving and ending it. By page 77 in the first book it's clear: Young John Grady Cole flees to Mexico for work with horses and finds a woman and brutally adult reality in betrayal, pain and death.
In the second Billy Parham flees to Mexico and unwittingly saves his own life only to find more cruelty, injustice and death. In the last the now young men find their simple existences just cannot remain so. Through it all is the beautiful, alluring and deadly enigma that is Mexico. I don't really care to read about cowboys or horses.
I know there are people who dedicate their lives to them and can work magic with them. All the Pretty Horses is clearly McCarthy's love song to the horse, with the other two novels complementing. If you are a cowboy, these three books are the best thing ever written for and about you. In all of this is the intimidating wonder of McCarthy's magnificent writing, his beautiful, attentive descriptions and perfect depiction of movement and action.
I will read anything he writes about. Describing a man's interest in a woman: Both times it came on surprisingly abruptly, despite me knowing what was coming; it just hit me, me in the story and living its depth and presence. This is profoundly powerful stuff. I'll make my simple complaint again: I'm learning it slowly as I read McCarthy's work, but there is so much I know I'm missing in these passages.
McCarthy has put a lot of time and attention into his work, and it pains me that I don't have the capacity to access this. Bottom line: These are stories of cowboys and horses and adventure in the dusty Southwest but are so much more, magnificent tales of existence and musing on human purpose and destiny. Cormac McCarthy is my favorite author right now.
