Music & Musings
I finally have the time to read some of the books that have been gathering dust on my bookshelf this past year. There’s a mixed bag of children’s literature, crime, fantasy and classic novels but so far, this one has to be my favourite…
It’s basically about an unnamed character, The Kid, and his time spent as a scalp hunter south of the border c1850. Barbaric doesn’t do it justice. Beautiful gets nowhere near close to describing the prose. But Blood Meridian is just that. Beautifully Barbaric.
It’s not the easiest of books to get into, but trust me – stick with it and you will be rewarded.
