Review: Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

User Review  - Andrea G. - Goodreads

I'm not saying this is a bad book. There's no such thing as a bad book, it's only a matter of tastes, and I didn't like it. Here's why: - I'm not American so the setting itself doesn't tell me ... Read full review

Review: Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

User Review  - Meghan - Goodreads

The writing is technically good, but for me this was way too violent and emotionally barren. There are no female characters other than random prostitutes and old women who are immediately killed.

User Review  - Thomas Applegarth - Goodreads

User Review  - Wade - Goodreads

Not an easy book to read. I recognized some of the brilliance of Robert Penn Warren and others, but just never could get attached to any character or the overall story. I'll give at least one more of ... Read full review

User Review  - Cagne - Goodreads

A long read, slowed down by an eccentric vocabulary and formatting. I was bothered by the ending, after all the description of the desert i wished something more was said about the people, even as can ... Read full review
