Outer Dark by Cormac McCarthy

Outer DarkOuter Dark by Cormac McCarthy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The title is fitting for this book as it is indeed a pretty dark tale. No happy endings here.

It’s only 251 pages long, so it didn’t take long to read. It is a very mysterious story. I don’t think any character in this book could be called sane.

Cormac McCarthy is great at creating dream type worlds-meaning he takes ordinary life and gives it a slight twist so that the characters and places in the story are familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.

A good novel, after you’ve finished, will leave you curious and wanting to answer the unanswered questions put forth by the story line. This novel does that.

Good book.
