    mabith: McCarthy's border trilogy reminded me so heavily of Steinbeck. I think if you enjoy one author you'll enjoy the other as well.

Great descriptions and atmosphere… I love the sense that the horses conscious state is present there with the cowboy’s. But I liked less how dumb the cowboys are, the decisions seem unrealistic at times, the world they are in is a bit heightened both in goodwill and bad.

Quite a memorable wotk, no matter, and non traditional narrative structure. ( )

Cormac McCarthy at his finest. A re-read after twenty years. Read also "Blood Meridian", "The Road", "No Country for Old Men" and others. Everything McCarthy wrote shines with a gritty presence. ( )

There's a lot of empty dark landscape and red blood in this book. And there are mesas and tortillas and saddles and sheetiron stoves and knives. The light in the sky is a character itself. The story weaves through Texas and Mexico, and through themes of fate and choice, care and violence, love and loss, as we follow a couple of young cowboys looking for . . . something beyond the life they were brought into, and which is disappearing in any case. It's an adventure and a romance, with a foreboding and sombre backdrop of the inevitability of suffering and betrayal. The writing is by turns pacy and lyrical, with passages of beauty and resignation mixed with page-turning thrills.

Some favourite quotes:

The closest bonds we will ever know are bonds of grief. The deepest community one of sorrow.


They heard somewhere in that tenantless night a bell that tolled and ceased where no bell was and they rode out on the round dais of the earth which alone was dark and no light to it and which carried their figures and bore them up into the swarming stars so that they rode not under but among them and they rode at once jaunty and circumspect, like thieves newly loosed in that dark electric, like young thieves in a glowing orchard, loosely jacketed against the cold and ten thousand worlds for the choosing.

In the end we all come to be cured of our sentiments. Those whom life does not cure death will. The world is quite ruthless in selecting between the dream and the reality, even where we will not. Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.

. . . they ran he and the horses out along the high mesas where the ground resounded under their running hooves and they flowed and changed and ran and their manes and tails blew off of them like spume and there was nothing else at all in that high world and they moved all of them in a resonance that was like a music among them and they were none of them afraid horse nor colt nor mare and they ran in that resonance which is the world itself and which cannot be spoken but only praised.

All the Pretty Horses is an odyssey set on the Texas-Mexico border that focuses on a sixteen year old boy becoming a man through the trials and tribulations of his adventures. All the Pretty Horses is a tragic romance and coming-of-age story, set in a land that is harsh, unforgiving, and deadly. John Grady Cole is a sixteen year old cowboy in Texas a few years after World War II who was raised on his grandfather’s ranch after his parents split up. After his grandfather dies, the ranch is being sold off. With no where else to go, John and his best friend Lacey Rawlins ride off for Mexico. Along the way they hook up with a runaway kid who is nothing but bad news. After getting work on a large ranch, John catches the owner’s eye with his skill working with horses, but after being promoted, John falls in love with the owner’s daughter which leads to trouble for him and Rawlins. Finding himself imprisoned, beaten, and struggling to survive, John is eventually freed, loses his love, regains his horses, and returns home to Texas to realize there is nothing left for him and rides off into the sunset, alone.

All the Pretty Horses is a beautiful, lyrical, and at times, harsh, novel of the realities of the cowboy/bandit life. It is also a tragic coming of age tale about a boy losing everything and the pains of first love.

Excellent.

A grim but beautifully-written book about people whose motives I struggled to understand. I liked it best as a window into Mexico of the mid-twentieth century. You'll get the most out of it if you have an annotated version for translating the intermingled Spanish and expanding on the Mexican history. ( )

You can’t just nip at darkness, so when you read this book, from page one you feel a threat following you, some animistic urging that keeps you going by the way McCarthy manipulates your demonic love of the sounds of speech.
 
All the Pretty Horses may indicate McCarthy's desire to come in out of the cold of those Tennessee mountain winters, but his imagination is at its best there with Arthur Ownby or with the monstrous Judge of Blood Meridian drowning dogs. He is best with what nature gives or imposes, rather than with the observations of culture.

The magnetic attraction of Mr. McCarthy's fiction comes first from the extraordinary quality of his prose; difficult as it may sometimes be, it is also overwhelmingly seductive. Powered by long, tumbling many-stranded sentences, his descriptive style is elaborate and elevated, but also used effectively to frame realistic dialogue, for which his ear is deadly accurate.
 
Situada en 1949, en las tierras fronterizas entre Texas y México, la historia se centra en el personaje de John Grady Cole, un muchacho de dieciséis años, hijo de padres separados que tras la muerte de su abuelo decide huir a México en compañía de su amigo Lacey para encontrarse con un mundo marcado por la dureza y la violencia. Una novela de aprendizaje con resonancias épicas que inaugura un paisaje moral y físico que nos remite a la última epopeya de nuestro tiempo. Un estilo seco para una historia de emociones fuertes, ásperas, primigenias.

There were storms to the south and masses of clouds that moved slowly along the horizon with their long dark tendrils trailing in the rain. That night they camped on a ledge of rock above the plains and watched the lightning all along the horizon provoke from the seamless dark the distant mountain ranges again and again. (p. 93 of original ed.)
The boy who rode on slightly before him sat a horse not only as if he'd been born to it which he was but as if he were begot by malice or mischance into some queer land where horses never were he would have found them anyway.
He thought that in the beauty of the world hid a secret. He thought the world’s heart beat at some terrible cost and that the world’s pain and its beauty moved in a relationship of diverging equity and that in this headlong deficit the blood of multitudes might ultimately be exacted for the vision of a single flower.
Scars have a strange power to remind us of our past.
