the movie did a surprisingly good job of conveying most of the facets of the book. i am currently reading, my confession by sam chamberlin, which is the historical record of the glanton gang. this is the basis for my favorite mccarthy book, blood meridian.
http://tshaonline.org/supsites/chamber/

its pretty entertaining (and Im not even to the scalp hunter part) with lots of great paintings by chamberlin himself.

It did drag in the middle but it picks up nicely if you can get through it. The ending basically sets up the next book.

I read about 150 more pages last night.. and it is becoming somewhat interesting. I just get winded with the authors verbosity. He sure likes to pack in the info, even if a good amount is arguably unnecessary. I should get done with it in a couple of days.

Yeah I agree. The whole police investigation thing was getting to me after a while. I'm like "I want more Lisbeth."

Crusade. This is the sequel to my favorite zombie novel of all time....Eden. I'm only about a third of the way through. It starts out with a bang…..lots of zombie annihilation. Then the character development begins. I would recommend reading the first before reading Crusade.

The book has great ideas but the execution of the story, particularly the ending.. left me wanting. I read online that the next books goes completely away from the television shows situations.. so I may read them, treating them as 'alternate universe' type stories.. If they are similar to the first Dexter novel.. then im not so sure that I will enjoy reading them.
This book sucks big time

Holiday time, off for a bit over 3 months until uni starts up again. That means lots of time at the beach and lots of time reading!
