This isn't my usual type of book, but I wanted a break and I'm so glad I picked All The Pretty Horses. It was a refreshing story and I didn't want to put the book down.The only problems I had was the story started at a ranch, but the people weren't introduced and I found myself saying, "Wait, what? Who is this and where do they fit in?" The other problem was the Spanish conversations that weren't interpreted for the reader, leaving me wondering what they were saying. I understand the author was trying to put us into the story, being in Mexico and all, but if we don't know what they're saying, part of the story is lost. Otherwise, I loved this book and may look up others written by Cormac McCarthy.
