Read full description of the books:
So are we gonna talk about No Country For Old Men, he said.
Why not, she replied.
Then we gotta do it like McCarthy, he said. Short sentences. Southern dialect. No punctuation.
I can drop the punctuation, she said. But I can't do Southern.
You can try.
Well then I caint. That good enough for you?
Youre tryin. That's the important thing. Caint do more than try.
Thank you. I wish I could speak it. It's a beautiful language. But I aint got his ear. He's got the best ear for dialect this side of Mark Twain.
He's got a mighty fine ear, that's for sure.
Well like I said I loved the language. And I loved the characters. Sheriff Bell and Llewelyn and Chigurh and even the minor ones. Carla Jean and Loretta and Carson and the hitchhiker.
They are all fine characters. They just come alive off the page.
They do. I aint gonna forget none of them soon. But I dont know what it's about.
It's gotta be bout somethin?
Hell yes. Chigurh is more than just a man. He's some kinda elemental force. A symbol of somethin.
And his duel with Llewelyn. That's a symbol too. It's like that Swedish movie we saw. Where the guy plays chess with Death.
The Seventh Seal.
That's the one. But I dont think Chigurh is Death. He's somethin else. Somethin else we caint escape from.
Now what would that be.
I bin lying here thinkin and I caint rightly say.
Maybe he aint no more than what he looks like.
I know what I know, she said. But I caint put it in words.
I dont think this conversation is goin noplace, he said.
They lay there for a while until she heard he was asleep. She got up quietly so as not to wake him and checked the door was locked. Then she got back into bed.
